Scholarships at both. I prefer to practice on the east coast. I like DC and could see myself possibly working on the Hill. I also like NC so I am unsure as to where I exactly want to end up. Both schools gave me great deals and I would not go into debt attending either. Which would you choose? Which will open the most doors and high paying job possibilities?

It is extremely difficult to get a job on the Hill with a JD but no prior Hill experience. If that's what you really want to do, make sure you do several Hill internships during law school and network your butt off. You also will need to choose a few policy issue areas that interest you and gain some substantive expertise. Even then, it's unlikely. W&M for the Hill for sure, though.

If he wants East Coast, eliminating ND makes sense.
I'm voting W&M over Wake in this case. I think they have a stronger rep. But, really, as you know, you have two good choices.
