Need Helping Deciding

Postby confused2013 » Mon Mar 15, 2010 1:46 pm

Hi, hoping you'll take my poll. Basic story is I'd like to practice law in the Chicago area, with an ultimate goal to be a Corporate Lawyer. I have these options (at the fore-front of my choices) and I hope you'll give your objective opinion if you were in my situation.

THANK YOU!

Go for highest-ranked school possible unless you have personal reasons not to.

If it was between T2 with a full tuition scholarship and T1 I would say go for the $.

But I would not choose a T3/T4 school over a T1. That's just my opinion.


But seriously why is John Marshall on the list?

Cross that off right away.

thanks for the opinion. If I'm not mistaken, there's no T2....so can you possibly restate what you were trying to say? Thanks!

Generally, I believe that anything outside of the T50 is considered T2... However, around here the argument usually starts about whether the T2 starts outside of T14 or T30 for the most part. :)
