Howard law v. Loyola University Chicago

Postby Strongfaithgirl » Thu Dec 19, 2013 8:58 pm

Hey guys Loyola is ranked higher but not attractive for big law whereas I hear that Howard is. Which school would you choose? why? Better big law opportunities in Chicago or dc?

Retake for t14 if you want big law, actually retake in general for any type of employment

That is true there are some good regionals in the 15-25 range.

There are plenty of good schools outside the T30. You just have to go for a cheap price because big law isn't likely. Kentucky and LSU come to mind.

Flame?

But if you really are trying to choose between these two, what kind of CoAs are we talking? If you are even considering loaning money or paying any savings towards a degree from these schools, you've done something very wrong indeed

Hmmm, I don't really know anything about either of those schools....Howard is on this list if it makes you feel any better.

Did you get scholarships to either? Since job prospects are going to be pretty tough at either, it's a good idea to improve enough so that you graduate with no, or very little debt.

You can ask that question once meaningful employment in those cities is a possibility. Right now, out these two schools, it isn't.

Retake the LSAT and give yourself some real options. You're shooting yourself in the gut, here.

I wonder how placement is for students at Howard who are not AA. Does anybody have any statistics on this?

True, but you implied you wanted Big Law. Getting Big Law is VASTLY more difficult outside of the T14, particularly that far outside of it. If we were talking about a Vanderbilt or a Texas or an Emory, that might be okay at the right price. Loyola or Howard? No.

You either need to A) accept that you won't get Big Law from either of these schools, and revise your goals. or B) Retake the LSAT.

Howard, if you're looking at the academic hip-hop jurisprudence route.

No clue. I know two practicing attorneys who went to Howard, but they're both AA women.
