Well UW is already extremely cheap for the high-class school that it is: Roughly 20 grand a year. That's roughly a 60k debt in the end, compared to the typical six-figure debt for most law schools. The way I see it, a school can only do two things: 1) Be real cheap but give out little to no scholarships, or 2) Be real expensive, but give out free rides and substantial scholarships.
While UW is absolutely cheap, many more expensive schools offer scholarships that make tuition less. It's hard to pass those offers up without feeling like a bit of a chump for paying sticker at UW.
Emphasis on chump
