How should I decide which shool to attend?

Postby masterthearts » Tue Oct 12, 2010 8:57 pm

Should I just take the school that ultimately accepts me which has the highest rank in US News? That is what I am leaning towards doing. Any other ideas?

If you're talking about the top 10 or so schools, this is credited advice. Otherwise, go to the best school in the region you want to practice. Also, money comes into this too. This question is waaaay too broad.

Credited. The whole "go to the best school" thing is really simple-minded advice. Sometime it is credited, but usually it is not. Region + money should be the two most important factors for you, unless you can get into one of the truly elite, national schools.

Is this flame? Outside of the t-14 schools, you have a lot of different factors that come into play - debt levels, area where you want to practice, and family obligations.

Ask TLS. I'm pretty serious about this.

Even in the T14 those concerns come in. It's more regional than people realize, and a T14 may not be worth sticker if you've got tons of money elsewhere.

Reread your post, then explain to me how it was not ambiguous.
