WUSTL v. ND

Postby tls_je » Wed Jun 01, 2011 8:34 am

Which one is a better choice, WUSTL or ND?

Would be appreciated if you could specify why you prefer one to another.


+ Do you have any information regarding the quality of the WUSTL faculty?

Any scholarship money at either?
Where do you want to work?
Employment goals?

(And the abbreviation for it is WUSTL, WULS is confusing)

Neither is the "better choice." It all comes down to preferences with these two schools. If money is a major concern, WUSTL is much more generous with money than ND. Other than that, I think ND (and this is very personal) trumps WUSTL in pretty much every category. Better campus, better alumni, better "brand name" better sports, and what seems to be a more friendly and welcoming student body. I'd say that career prospects are very similar, however, if you are dead set on Big Law i WUSTL places slightly better. Either way, i love both school and think that both will provide you with good opportunities.

Thanks for the correction.
I've got 15k per year from WUSTL, and I want to get a job in NY, MA, or DC.

Thanks for your response.
Do you think the rank difference b/w those two does not make much difference?

The standard advice is to go to school where you want to practice. Why aren't GW, BU, and Fordham in the picture if you want the East coast?

If you go though - the schools have almost identical employment data, Notre Dame actually fared a tad better for the class of 09. So just pick whichever you like more and feel would be a better fit (or wherever is cheapest). But you should really go to a school on the east coast.
And no, the ranking doesn't matter.
