--- CYCLE RECAP ---
I'm UGA bound, baby! Go Dawgs!

Don't be afraid of walking away from the T14, especially if you know you don't want to do big law. I've been leaning public interest for awhile, and that career path made scholarship money a priority in my decision. The dollar figures above are somewhat misleading because UGA tuition is already substantially less than most law schools. They offered full tuition plus stipend money, and the campus is beautiful.

It came down to ASU and UGA. I visited both and liked both areas. UGA is comparable academically, offered more money, and had a cheaper cost of living. That, along with not being in a huge city, sealed the deal.

I'll check this page periodically. So if you are reading this for some reason and have any law school admissions questions, feel free to send me a message!
