another one these (all opinions welcome)

Postby charliep » Tue Apr 17, 2012 3:44 pm

all of my significant ties are to ohio with some weak ones in texas. i dont care too much about where i work; i just want to work. ideally, i would like to work for a firm then transition to government, but i understand the unlikelihood of this. i will be paying all of the cost of attendance with loans, and i dont have much undergrad debt. let me know if i left anything out

edit: sorry for the typo in the subject line

ITT posters seemed to agree OSU > Case , even at slightly more cost.

If I were you, I would go to Vandy. Although, I have personal preference for the south.

I think this poll is WashU vs. Vandy. I would go Vandy, but I understand WashU for 50k less.

I love that these threads now say things like "all opinions welcome" not knocking the OP but since so many say "don't tell me to retake" it just seems appropriate & also funny.

As to your question OP, if I were in your situation I would go to Vandy but take that with a grain of salt.

Unless you don't mind retaking and getting into UVA if you want the south or another T14 for anywhere else.

unfortunately, i took the LSAT 3 times. i agree that none of these options are that great. i am, however, a little surprised at the lack of support for wash u

Probably Vandy since it'll get you a decent chance at firm work. It's a bit too expensive for my tastes (I'm assuming you haven't factored interest into your CoA's), but I think it's cheap enough that it's a definite winner.

fair enough. and you're right: no interest factored in
