YUP! I looked from PHX... ~$400/ea for my wife and I.

Don't forget to take advantage of their reimbursement program, at least it allows you to recoup $300 of it.

So, I have $40,000/year at W&L, which is close but not quite a full ride. I also have been accepted to U of M...where would you guys go if you were in my situation?

I have no idea where I want to work after graduation...

Which UM are we speaking of?

Also, where do you want to practice law and what are your goals for a law career?

University of Michigan. I really have no idea where I want to work or what area I want to work in. I see myself in a firm, and I am not adverse to biglaw. I don't really see myself in PI. but otherwise, I got nothing.

Honestly I'd go to UM. But I'm biased because my uncle went there for law and loved it. You'll have great big law options if you decide that's what you want to do. If you don't want to do big law, the mobility of the degree won't hold you down to the Michigan area.

If you're more concerned about debt and okay with staying in VA, then W&L is a great school and option for you. 40k/year is a full ride, right? That's definitely a huge factor to consider. Nothing like a free professional education from a top notch University like W&L.

Visit both and I think things will become more clear. Best of luck to you :)

You might also try to negotiate Michigan into giving you something. No sense in not trying.

Depends on the week. This year, probably not. This region has gotten practically nothing this year

I also got in with similar numbers (161 and 3.84), but I also applied super early. Best of luck.
