Want to practice in Midwest. Where to go?

Postby Jhausie » Tue Apr 10, 2012 7:55 pm

Above are the schools that I have been accepted to. I want to practice in the Midwest, but also want the best education possible. I want the school that will land me the best job and still hopefully allow me to work in the Midwest (preferably Minnesota or Wisconsin). Where should I go?

remove 3, 4, and 5 from your list.

Flip a coin on 1 and 2.

If you graduate from Marquette you won't have to take the bar exam

I'd probably go with William Mitchell... they place really well in Minneapolis despite the existence of UM and are usually generous with scholarships.

The one person who voted Loyola must have thought it was Loyola Chicago.

It's definitely between 1 and 2. Money at either?

marquette is a good school...but seriously, with a 155/3.7, you need to retake. I went on LSN, and compiled a list of people who had LSATs between 160-165, with GPAs of 3.6-3.8; take a look. I'm just trying to convey that you don't need to be intimidated by people telling you to get 17x. Even by raising your lsat a few points, you will be in much better shape.

Did Marquette offer you money?

Considering how poorly people out of Wisconsin are doing, I can't imagine doing Marquette at sticker. With a 3.7, retake. If you can't knock the pants off of a 155 with 4 months of solid studying, I can't imagine how you would plan on succeeding in law school anyways. You can easily save yourself upwards of 100,000$ and get into a much better school by getting up to a 165+.
