If you go to any of these schools, pick the one where you want to work.

They're all good, regional schools. Go where you want to work.

Out of the options you listed, I say Notre Dame. I've heard a lot about the strength of their alumni network, which should leave you more options than any of the other schools you've listed.

But a retake could have you looking at some splitter friendly T14 schools.

Dont look at the scholarship amount. Look at the CoA minus the scholarship amount. Tough to tell from the discount amount.

CTC13 wrote:So I have, so far, gotten into the above schools with the listed scholarship amounts. I am still waiting on BU/BC but my chances are likely slim. 167 and a 3.0<x<3.2. I am not partial to any particular region, though have connections to the New England area (where I grew up). I am not particularly debt averse, but would obvious try to mitigate bad debt. I would prefer to live and work in the northern latitudes as opposed to the southern ones. Would like to find a job in biglaw, though chances are slim. Let me know what you all think the best option is/best school is toward this end. Thanks for the help!


1. Retake.

2. If not (1), then I think the choice is between Minnesota and Notre Dame. Both could, theoretically, give you access to the Chicago market, and Minnesota gives you access to Minneapolis/St. Paul market. If you want biglaw, you should probably try to find out: a) What are the placement rates of these schools into the biglaw market, both generally speaking and when looking at specific markets?, and b) What is the alumni network- do specific biglaw firms hire at Minn. or Notre Dame because they have alums as partners. It's going to come down to questions like these, as you stated that you're not too debt averse.

Also, as previously stated, these schools are fairly regional, so your geographic preference may make the decision for you.
