You are better off NOT GOING TO LAW SCHOOL.
OP, I hate to be inflammatory, but are either of these schools a *TOP 8* SCHOOL? NO. Do NOT go to law school if it is not a top 8 school or you have if you do not have friends/family/connections in the field who can secure a job for you upon graduation. I'm speaking as a former prospective law student who very recently became truly educated as to the nature of this scummy industry (I always knew it was bad out there, but was unaware of how bad it actually is).
Law schools use tricky and misleading employment and salary statistics to ensnare prospective students. Law professors make 6 figure salaries. How do they sleep at night knowing this and going into teach everyday facing countless students who will, in turn, be crippled with that many figures in non-dischargable debt and no job prospects.
The ABA are swine. They accredit these crapholes without requiring them to submit an independent audit of salary and employment figures. Have any of you thought about how truly, completely absurd it is to charge someone 45,000k for one year of legal "education"?? This madness HAS to stop. It must be fought. It starts by getting naive people like the OP from going to law school en masse and continuing to give these pigs sick amounts of money.
