Kentucky vs. Villanova

Postby isaiah535 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:53 pm

I am from New Jersey. I would like to go elsewhere for law school. The best two options I have thus far are Kentucky and Villanova. I received the in-state scholarship at Kentucky, but so far it is looking like sticker price at Villanova. Originally I was thinking Villanova would give me a better shot at a job after law school, but it is becoming more confusing as the new rankings show Kentucky at 62 and Villanova at 101. I have been hearing that it's a shallow market in Kentucky, but it just seems tough to justify paying double to go to a school ranked 50 spots lower. Your thoughts?

Visit, then decide.

P.S. What is the total COA for each law school ?

Due to the regional/"homer" nature of legal hiring, law school is not the time to pick up and try to get a jobs in places you're not from or don't have significant ties.

All of this. I'd gnaw off anxappendage before dropping that kind of cash in a villanova degree. Only Nova worth attending at sticker is in Florida.

Can't tell if you're serious on that one. But OP I wouldn't go to Villanova without a significant scholarship.
