Northern Florida is pretty southern, IMHO. Granted I haven't really lived anywhere else in the south, but I have been to Northern Georgia and there are distinct similarities.

I lived in High Springs (20 minutes north of Gainesville) for about 3 years, and traveled the state quite a bit. I would say everything north of Orlando is not just southern, but VERY Southern.

Florida: the only state where the farther south you go, the farther north you get.

sorry if emory didnt make the cut :P maybe next year, if they add a "0" to the end of their OCI attendance

OCI attendance ≠ OCI hiring. Also TCR is UVA, by a mile.

while it's true that there may only be a 5% chance of getting hired following an OCI interview, it is also true that there is a 0% chance of getting hired with no interview at all. besides, OCI is a good experience even if nothing comes of it. I still consider OCI to be among the strongest factors in choosing a school.

I think the answer has got to be UVA. It definitely has the edge over Duke in most metrics, but both have a sizable lead over every other school in the South.

The percentage of graduates with clerkships/firm jobs is much more important than the number of firms that show up to OCI and do god knows what.

It's UVA followed by Duke and Vandy, the rest aren't even really in the conversation.

Didn't apply to UVA, Duke WLed me and then dropped the ding mid-august, so I'm going with UVA as the better one out of bitterness.

Duke and UVA both reign in the South.

Duke is the best IMO, followed by UVA and then Vandy. Local schools take priority after these three (i.e. don't go to Texas expecting to have an edge over UNC students in NC because Texas is ranked in the top 20.)

Also, slightly off-topic, I just read through the OCI thread and can't believe how poorly Emory did. Only 30 firms are coming to OCI?!? During my ASW the administration claimed Emory was the "Harvard of the South," and that most students ended up in NYC. I guess they are a "northern" school in a southern state, but the NYC firms do not want to spend money to come down and interview them.

Are we not including Hawaii? Just the 48?
