Wow, is your gf applying to law school as well? As you probably already know, the TC are a great place to live. A full ride in the local market would be hard to turn down.
Nah, she's getting her Doctorette in Physical Therapy, or a second master's in Occupational Therapy (depending on where she gets in.) She applied to UMn and St. Cait's in the twin cities, Clarke and St. Ambrose (both an hour or so from U of Iowa) and Colorado State (about an hour from Denver and Colorado U). So we'll see what happens for her, but I would love to live in the twin cities for sure.
I'm slightly worried about the hiring prospects from UST, but ~$50k in debt from cost of living would mean I only need to make $55k or so a year out of school to be in the same living style I'm accustomed to now with the extra debt load. Plus, the people I know who currently attend UST are pretty hopeful, even as 1L's after a semester.
