Emroy $$, Tulane $$ or U Iowa

Postby bbrown90 » Tue Mar 17, 2015 4:32 pm

Hey Guys- trying to make final decisions. I am not sure what kind of law I want to practice, but want to be involved with international programs and human rights. Possibly litigation as well- we'll see if I don't bomb. Or maybe I will change my mind 6 other times.

I realize these schools are all over the place, but I am not concerned about location. I would be happy to end up in any of these areas. Except Iowa- but they place pretty well outside of state from what I understand. Plus, my 2nd and 3rd year I would have in-state tuition which is much more palatable.

Anyway- what do you guys think about these schools in terms of reputation and employment? I am having trouble ranking them.

Here is my pro/con list so far, please feel free to add.

Emory- Pro: great reputation in the area, $57,000 scholly over 3 years, ties to Atlanta, fantastic International Law program
Con: I've heard many horror stories about Emory students- can anyone speak to this?
Tulane- $60,000 scholly, LOVE New Orleans, laid back atmosphere, fantastic International Law program and one of the largest collections of International Law
Con- less prestigious, COA is still right up there with Emory. Possibly can get more money from this one though.

In order to receive the best feedback in this forum, please provide as much of the following information in your original post as possible:

-The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT
