- I'm not sure where I want to live after graduation: I might want to remain on the East Coast; I might want to return to the West Coast (where I'm from).
I'd like to take a shot at landing a federal clerkship after school.
I have a professional background in IT, and I have an interest in IP, but I am open to other areas of the law.
I am 95% sure that I do not want to do transactional law in a big firm.
I think I would enjoy both Ithica and NYC (for different reasons, obviously).
I have other options besides Cornell and Columbia, but I'd like to keep the focus on those two schools for the sake of this discussion. Trolls are welcome.
