(Edited): Since my hopes of getting into Vanderbilt have been slashed, burned, and urinated on; these are the two offers i'm seriously considering. WUSTL will put me back a good 35k more than W&L, which isn't insignificant, but it seems like Washington & Lee isn't quite the school WUSTL is in terms of reputation in placement for someone shooting for biglaw. What do you guys think?

I have no preference for region whatsoever. I took in the total debt I would have from each school, the percentages from the latest NLJ250 employment, and did a cost value analysis so I already have some idea how they stack up (very close). I just can't decide if that extra 30G in debt is going to be worth the better employment prospects.

Edit: also, I plan on finishing #1 in my class at either school

Given that you'll be #1 in your law school class, you should go to WUSTL and transfer to Yale.

as number 1 in class, no need to transfer unless you want to be a law professor. you will have great job prospects at either school.
