This is the exact definition of a lay prestige argument. Whether "most people have heard of a school" doesn't matter at all, because the people making hiring choices have.

I don't really have a horse in the ND/WUSTL race, I'd just go to Davis and make finding a CA job that much easier. But I really don't think that one is much better than the other.

But romo, your avatar looks like a troll :).

Edit:

I think those 4 schools are all solid choices. I think WUSTL probably gives you the most options, and Davis has the best network in CA. So, it would be down to those two for me, but ND and Fordham are both great well respected schools as well.

Romo, every time I look at a WUSTL thread there you are the internet bad ass talking shit on every other midwest school. Yet when it comes to WUSTL vs X you tell other people not to go to WUSTL probably because you don't even want to go there yourself.

BTW get the fuck off the internet 2500 posts is embarrassing.

after long consideration, i am leaning towards WUSTL with the risk of not being able to come back to CA.

as much as rankings may not matter, WUSTL has been able to secure the rank 19 for 5 years in a row. while davis, ND, and Fordham has been going from 20-40 in the last 5 years. WUSTL seems to be fully secured as top 20 law school.

i have also heard that recruitment from ND has dropped with the recession. (talking about California). im sure this has also affected WUSTL as well. i also think the reason why ND may place more in CA may be personal preference of the individual. simply more people from ND may wish to work in CA. the real statistic wouldn't be how many people place in CA, but how many people place in CA who wish to return to CA.

ND and WUSTL does seem to be peer schools. and it is true that more people in california know of notre dame than wustl, but mainly because of their sports program. all lawyers should know of both schools even if laymen do not.

my decision has come down to tuition and COL which wustl has the lead in both categories. Thank you for your opinions guys, and good luck with whichever schools everyone attend. going to a tier 1 school is a privilege in itself and im just glad i get to be the 1% that gets to attend.

i really don't think that going to wustl carries much of a risk of not being able to make it back to CA.
i think wustl is one of those schools where a larger percentage of the student body that at other schools go back to where their from after graduation. I know that for the past couple of years the porportion of classes with students from regions like the pacific coast and south central (TX, LA, OK, AR) lines up with with proportion of classes ending up in those regions after graduation. you may have to do a lot of work to secure work in CA but it would be much easier for you than someone not from the region.

ranking is irrelevant. you're right that nd are peer schools and in picking between the two it's best that it comes down to price and personal preference (i.e. how much do you like or dislike ND's religious affiliations).

Romo the internet badass doesn't necessarily agree with your reasoning, but congratulations on your decision and welcome to the class. WUSTL is a great school and should give you a shot at CA if you do well. St. Louis is also a lot of fun and the campus is gorgeous.

Welcome aboard.
