I'm anticipating now that I will probably ride out my decision until about March 14th or so. That's the day the new law school rankings come out, and I should have Utah's scholarship offer by then and have had some time to think over current scholarship offers (The rankings are not that important to me, but the 14th is a good soft deadline so I'm finalized before Arizona's April 1st seat deposit deadline). As it stands, Arizona will be roughly $20,000 more expensive to attend. I'm leaning heavily in Nebraska's direction and have notified Arizona that I'll be accepting Nebraska unless Arizona would like to match Nebraska's offer. I'd still be slightly more inclined to accept Nebraska in that case however as it would still be roughly $12,500 more to attend Arizona. I think I'm ok with $12,500 more though, so I'd probably go Arizona if they match. Who knows what Utah will do. They don't statistically give out many full tuition offers (per 509 report) but I guess you never know. They don't really factor into my decision though as their on-campus housing is $1200 a month for a 3 bedroom. So basically, I feel crazy right now and who knows what will happen and what I'll do ;).

Full-tuition offers:
Nebraska (and fees + $1,500 stipend/yr)
UNLV (In-state + 2,500 stipend/yr)

**To anyone discouraged by their first LSAT score, let me tell you that it royally sucked opening that email and seeing 153 the first time around. I was an idiot and literally only took 2 practice tests to study (though my lack of studying was largely a time management problem). It was an excellent opportunity for me to decide if I actually wanted to become a lawyer. I still didn't get much practice for the second test (just went through the SuperPrep book) but 8 points was all I needed to land what I consider awesome offers. Don't get discouraged by your first test, rededicate yourself (if this is really what you want to do) and kill it!
