Thanks! Right now I am gathering information and studying for the LSAT, but as things progress I may look you up.

you want in state at NC yr 2 hit me up. you can live in my shed. bahahaha no for real I employ you, you get license, you are Legend. so on and so forth. Play the game. go with your gut. if all else fails decide on how many months of winter you would like to suffer through and COL numbers. It really does come down to New England vs. Carolinas(southern VA as well maybe) game. Bulk of 31 yrs spent in NY/MA/PA and 4-5 yrs of my life in the south. I am staying in the south. different strokes for different lemurs.

OP I am confident there is a nugget of sound advice somewhere in that incomprehensible morass.

sorry Rad, OP and all. I have an issue with this cyber communication thing always assuming everyone is in my head with me. Basic takeaway from previous post. If you want UNC and you want in state tuition there are always people willing to help out and make that an undeniable reality. The good old interweb is a useful tool.

Thank you for the subtle reminder about my oft times (93.5% of the time) incomprehensible shit spewing. There is content sometimes and it is usually coming from a positive place.

thanks for the info, opinions.

I am honestly more interested in school specific things in terms of faculty, style, politics, etc. (all other things equal: tuition, col).

Any specific experiences or opinions in general?

Doesn't matter. Choose whether you want to work in NC or Boston/NE and you have your decision.

And don't pay sticker.

thanks for the blunt answer. i get your opinion/advice. but i was just seeing if there was any other information out there. im not going to follow your advice either way because I am going to one of them and going to pay sticker. you and i are obviously very different folks.

Decide for between either NC (to a lesser extent the south) or MA (to a lesser extent the northeast), just like the first reply to the thread said.

If you're fine paying sticker then pay sticker. But these two areas have very different atmospheres, I highly doubt that they are both equal to anyone.

Drives the point home. IMO that is a great way to phrase it. Two completely different environments, I don't feel either is drastically better in the big picture location wise, just fits better for certain people at certain times of their life...All the surrounding areas that could be pursued for work are very comparable to those areas as well on very basic QOL/COL level.

Not a fun call to make. I am very anti NE after living up that way most of my life but I would not want to have to pull this trigger.

These two arent even close. There are hardly any UNC grads working in Vault 100 firms, while their are hundreds of BC grads. You can even broaden the scope to compare the schools at the AMLaw firms (or NLJ250). If your goal is name recognition, prestige and job placement, go to BC.

If you want more attractive undergraduate girls, go to UNC. That and basketball is aout all it has going for it. Who wants to live in the middle of nowhere in the south for three years, possibly the rest of your life?

NC isn't exactly the middle of nowhere. Charlotte? Research triangle?

You're a fucking idiot.

Wrong about all of the south being "middle of nowhere," right about more attractive undergraduate girls.

The latter is contentious. Do a google search for bc magazine girl.

As much as I personally dislike the South, Rad Law is right. Epic is headquartered in NC, ergo it is not the middle of nowhere.

This sounds like the stem to an LSAT question.

What must be assumed if bk1's conclusion is true?

(a) If Radlaw is wrong, then Epic is in the middle of nowhere
(b) If Epic is in not the middle of nowhere, then it is not headquartered in NC
(c) If a person dislikes the south, then they must dislike Radlaw
(d) Epic cannot be headquarted in the middle of nowhere
(e) Small law is an idiot

I'm down to D and E. It's so hard to only pick one. Damn you LSAT.
