What would you pick? Not sure what legal market I want to work in...


Indiana is also an option @ 15k/year. Wouldn't fit in the subject line :D

Market makes a big difference. Those are region-centric schools.

My guess is that the Brooklyn free ride has a top 40% stipulation, which sucks. If you live in Florida I can't imagine you liking Iowa or Indiana. Take Florida.

I've decided not to pursue the free ride at Brooklyn. It's essentially FL vs. Iowa vs. Indiana at this point.

I would prefer to leave Florida, honestly, but only if it meant getting a solid job in Chicago or Los Angeles. Otherwise, I could probably make it work close to home.

Iowa's biggest markets are Chicago and Minneapolis, less than 40% stay in Iowa, the rest go other places. I don't think any from the last class went to New York, but ~15 went to DC and ~10 went to California. Overall graduates went to 32 states. If you want to leave Florida, then I would say take the money at Iowa over Indiana. But Florida is not a bad school and I am sure it does well in it's market.

Iowa unless you want to stay in Florida. Doesn't seem like a very difficult choice, honestly.
