Gaines v Registrar of the Univ. of Missouri (1938)

Did Missouri offer Gaines a legal education of equal quality?
---Dean Masterson at trial: "All the same anyway--schools just as good, same books, same law...."  (Did the Dean tell recruits that?)

What reasons not to accept the offer?
---Transportation costs
---Distance from friends and relatives
---Less Missouri law
---Less opportunity to make employment contacts if wanted to practice in Missouri
---Schools may not be of equal reputation in eyes of potential clients
