What are your career goals? Do you want to practice in TX or California? Hippies or surfers? Cattle or tofu? Do you really want to go to a school that hires Lane Kiffen as head football coach? (He recruits 13 year olds, lest we forget.)

For those that want to practice in California, USC is an EXCELLENT choice.
For those that want to practice in Texas, UT is an EXCELLENT choice.

Is there a significant difference between the clerkship opportunities at the two schools?

UT routinely places in the Fifth Circuit COA. Not sure about USC, though.

Really? I'm hesitant to believe this. I don't think either school places particularly well in the Bay, but USC is a respected brand even in Northern California. UT, not as much.

USC

Now that UCLA is having budget problems, USC will once again be better school in SoCal.

UT. Texas's economy is doing much better than CA's, so you have a better shot at landing a job out of law school.

I love the utter economic myopia and completely lack of foresight that runs rampant on TLS. This economy is going to recover. California's too. Three years is a long time in market-years - things will likely change. Obviously, it might get worse, but it might get better. Much better.

In which case, you'll want to be somewhere that makes you happy, even if you have to "slum" it for a little while, making $90k at a mid-sized firm (Oh, what a cruel and unjustified death... :roll: )
