I'm in the difficult process of choosing my law school, and I would appreciate some advice.
First off, I am from Dallas but have lived in Oklahoma for the past two years. I am willing to work in Oklahoma City or Dallas. I am 25, on my own, and will pay for everything. Also, I have no current debt. I went to a top business school, worked in real estate for 4 years, and now am seeking the law degree I passed over to originally pursue the real estate market.
My stats, which are in my profile, are 160 and 3.0. I am well aware my GPA is not great - my classes were difficult, grade-deflated, and only 3 business students in the entire 500 graduates made any form of cum laude. Not making excuses, just painting the larger picture.
1. I am not retaking and reapplying. I simply cannot do that, so don't even waste your time posting.
2. I know these are not "top" law schools like everyone here is used to, so save the critique. I am looking for advice about choosing ranking over scholarship, or anything in the same relative area.
Basically, it comes down to a full-ride under a dean's scholarship (access to the dean, invites to many events) vs. a much more prestigious school with a wider area to eventually practice in vs. a decent texas school with a great litigation reputation.
What would you do?
