Should I pick a school based on location or rank?

Postby ANoor » Mon May 07, 2012 11:56 pm

I'm torn between staying in California, and attending a lower ranked school, such as Santa Clara, UOP or Southwestern, and leaving to a higher ranked school such as U Kansas, U Illinois or U Wisconsin. Would I stand to make higher salary at KU than at Santa Clara or UOP? I'm willing to relocate, and will do what it takes to be successful. I hear a lot of people saying to stay where you grew up, is that valid?

My Info:

GPA 3.3 LSAT 160 URM (Mexican/Latino) 31yrs old, Male.
Lived all over Cali since I was 5.

ACCEPTED:
KU with a $10/yr scholly
U Maine with $20/yr
Golden Gate 2$20/yr

WAITLIST:
U Illinois, U Wisconsin, U Miami, UNLV, Santa Clara, Marquette, UOP McGeorge and Southwestern.

HAVENT HEARD YET:
Pepperdine, Loyola LA
