I have a question for the mgolawyers and those currently in law school. Is it worth it and would it be wise to take a scholarship at a lesser school or take out loans to go to a school that is ranked a little higher? I am graduating from Western Michigan this coming Saturday with a degree in criminal justice and a minor in social work and have spent the last two years doing everything necessary to get ready for law school. I have recently been accepted at Wayne State (currently waiting for scholarship info), have a 75% scholarship at Michigan State, have been placed on waiting lists at Iowa and Wisconsin, and am still waiting to hear back from Chicago-Kent. The reason that I am asking if it's worth it is because the closer I get to quitting my job and enrolling in a school the more second-guessing I am doing. I am particularly worried about quitting my job because although I hate it, it pays quite well and I have a famliy to support. My wife and I have crunched the numbers and it will be possible to live on her income for the next 3-4 years but after that it will be tough. Any info you guys could give me would be great. And I am prepared for the snarky comments for considering sparty law.
Edit: I just checked my status at Wayne State and it shows on Friday they mailed out a scholarship acceptance form.
