Case Western Reserve or Baylor (Spring)??

Postby kkoma » Wed Apr 06, 2011 11:32 am

I got into Case Western Reserve Law and also Baylor.
but I was offered spring admission for Baylor.

I am currently living in Texas... but not in Waco, where Baylow Law is.

I have no clue which school to choose... Since their rankings are similar.
And I don't even know what are the factors I need to consider...

Please help!!!!

P.S. I also got waitlisted at Houston... If I were admitted, where would you suggest me to go?

P.S. And also if you could tell me why you chose that, it would be great!

it really comes down to where you want to live, texas v ohio
for texas, from what i've seen houston has better job prospects than baylor
if money is an important factor, go to the school that will cost you less, if that amount is significant

Factors to consider include comparative costs of attendance, where you want to live & work after law school & any legal academic areas of interest. Tough to offer suggestions based on the limited information in your post. Baylor is a tough law school throughout all three years primarily due to their mandatory third year trial program. Waco is quite different than Cleveland or Houston.

Both Baylor and Houston are regional. Houston will have better employment opportunities in Houston. Baylor will be about equal to Houston in other parts of Texas (which means behind UT and SMU). If you want to be a litigator in Texas Baylor isn't a bad option. If you want to be anything else or anywhere else it's not a wise choice.
