I don't care where I end up living. I'm mainly concerned about job prospects. Thanks for the help.

Total cost of attendance at each? Where are you from? Where do you have strong ties?

From Richmond. Loose ties in Richmond through parents. Loose ties in Dallas from undergrad. I think totals for next year after subtracting scholarship money will be about 27k at W&M, 20k at SMU, and 24k at Richmond.

I believe that SMU would give you the highest probability of acquiring a desirable job. Thus, I vote SMU.

Jobs are hard to come by from pretty much all schools, especially once you get out of the top 14-19 or so. From speaking with multiple 3Ls at UR and the recent UR Law grads in my office, the situation is not as dire as some would lead you to believe.

If you have ties to TX go to SMU, if you only have ties to VA go to W&M. Below are the differences between W&M and UR I posted in an earlier thread.

% Working in a law firm: W&M 40.9%, UR 31.4%
% Working in firm over 100 attorneys: W&M 20%, UR 5%

Of that, % at a firm of over 500 attorneys: W&M 9.1%, UR 1.4%

UR 2010 Data (LinkRemoved)
