After looking into the school, it has become a serious contender. It appears that my decision will likely come down to MSU or LSU. I am in at LSU with a scholar award that gives me in state tuition PLUS 25% off of that. Looking at about 14k a year for law school at LSU...weighing heavy on me.
Can anyone offer any inside info on MSU and/or East Lansing that would be helpful?
LOVE the midwest. LOVE the outdoors.
I'm terrrriiiiffffiiieeedddd of the winter.. really... terrified. I've never been in weather colder than 40. This may seem like something that can be easily overlooked for those of you who have lived in snow, but for me, it is pretty serious. lol.. and obviously I am looking into the cities these schools are in because the move will most likely be permanent.
MSU was founded as an agricultural college, and despite its growth, it has very much maintained truthful to that mission. As a result, the campus is rather large and filled with tons of things intended for outdoor activity. It's rather nice in the spring, summer and fall. Yes though, winter can get pretty rough. That said, if you dress properly it really isn't that terrible. Most people just don't.
LSU and MSU are in radically different regions. This decision really has to come down to where you want to live. If you prefer the Midwest to the Gulf Coast or vice versa, that should be the only question.
Feel free to PM if you have any specific questions about MSU/East Lansing, I'm still living in East Lansing part time.
