St. Marys has an employment score close to 70% which is higher than some of the top 30 schools in the nation including Boston Univerisity and Washington and Lee. What makes these top schools more attractive when they hold employment scores of 50% and 60% respectively? I am trying to broaden my knowledge pertaining to this subject matter so that is why I have have numerous questions regarding choosing a law school. Thanks again for all your help ahead of time.
Two things: How much debt are you looking at, and what do you want to do?
Both schools have atrocious big firm scores, place few people (if anyone) into prestigious government and PI jobs, and have virtually no clerkship possibilities. If you can go for cheap and are cool with doing less-than-prestigious work (what most refer to as "shitlaw"), then go for it. But the idea of taking out debt for either of those schools just seems insane to me.
