UIUC($) vs Emory($) Thank you~

Postby dewdawn » Tue Apr 16, 2013 10:39 pm

Hi guys, I am hesitating between UIUC and Emory, hopefully TSLers here can give me some suggestions! :D
I have 66% tuition off from UIUC (~90K) and 78K from Emory. In other words, I have to pay the following amounts: UIUC - 16,000(tuition) + living expenses; Emory - 20,000(tuition) + living expenses. UIUC seems to be more economical, but Emory has a higher ranking... I don't know much about their respective reputation in law market... Any suggestion is welcome here! Thank you! :D

Any more suggestions? still swaying between these two...

Rankings mean almost nothing when looking for a job. Where do you want to practice? if Midwest, Illinois, if South, Emory.

None are great for biglaw, but here are the numbers, make what you want of them.

The first is just in terms of percentages, the second is what firms were actually hiring the students. Aka, not every firm in the NLJ is made equal.

Thank you so much for your help... I haven't decided where I wish to practice after graduation... I am an international student, so I really don't know which part would be my future destination...
