i think your shot at biglaw or JC after LS is highest at Texas

Keep in mind that your starting salary is going to be different if you end up doing biglaw in TN/GA than if you end up in San Fran, DC or Boston. So your debt to income ratio is going to be very different once you start working.

I think, based on your markets, you should really consider Emory, Vandy and BC. Keep your debt down at each and work hard.

You can see what firms pay first year associates using nalp directory's website.

I would start be removing W&M from consideration. Based on your goals and market preferences, I'd go with Vandy here. Gives you the best chance at securing a federal clerkship and dominates two of your top 4 markets.

Full disclosure: I'm a Vandy troll.

Those two reasons point straight to vanderbilt. That said, texas is probably worth a visit but Vandy is giving you more money and places a little better nationally.
