I think they are very similar, but for biglaw (especially in DC) I would give GW the edge. W&L does have some advantages. Cost of living is much cheaper. But I think the connections you could potentially make while living in DC would make the cost worth it.

I wouldn't be so quick to conclude that GW's more portable, at least with respect to Florida. A lot of folks from Florida go to W&L, and a W&L degree will get you anywhere you want to go in the Southeast. I'm not sure GW travels that well in the southeast, but maybe I'm wrong.

Well I am in the very fortunate position that my parents have set aside money for grad school for several years so I am able to get the best education I can, regardless of the price. That said, ignoring NY at the moment, would UF give a better shot at big law in Florida over GW? I'm talking greenberg traurig or other big firms in brickell
