Two months ago I would have said UVA, but I visited them and was really impressed. Plus, buff guys with southern accents.
I'll pick Duke, based entirely off of my (probably inaccurate and certainly irrelevant) impressions of the college. The two people I know who went there at points, independently of each other, had Facebook photos of them in business suits double-fisting.
Although I actually kinda like that coat of arms.
My sister was there (for UG, not LS as I may have implied earlier), and it--again, the UG--has some of the snobbiest kids out there. Weird, 'cause it's definitely a southern (vice national) draw for the most part, but I would put it against the snootiest schools in the NE as far as the prevalence of elitism. Has a Greek house hierarchy that's 10x stricter than the one we apply to law schools (Harvard LS:Cooley LS::KKG:Zeta).
The shield thingy is very controversial. I was undecided on it for a long time, but have finally decided that I do not like it at all. Consequently, I have turned down the full ride they offered me, and will continue waiting to hear back from lower-ranked schools.
See if you can leverage your other offers and get Duke to change the shield.
I'll admit that my experience with southern colleges is not extensive, but when I was looking at colleges like Duke, UVA, Ole Miss, UT and the other 50 or so "Harvards of the south," humility did not seem to be the watchword. Not that it was at the big name NE schools, or my own little college in the pacific northwest.
After a half a year of researching and applying to law schools and looking at this board, I think dealing with that snobbery may have just been practice. It is worrisome when "Top Law Schools" is one of the least elitist forums.
