If you want small firm/local government, Villanova. If you want biglaw/clerk/fed gov/some prestigious PI, neither. UConn is out imo.

I'm fine with small firm/local government. I'm not a biglaw or bust kind of person. If I manage to do well enough to somehow have biglaw as an option, then I would consider it, but it's not an end all be all for me. Thanks for your input.

Am I reading it correctly that your COA at Villanova would be >100K? That is far too high of a cost for it to be a justifiable. You have a golden ticket; this is what you're going to spend it on?

UConn should be attended under almost no circumstances.

Nova is defensible b/c parents are footing the bill, you don't care enough about biglaw to base your decision on it, and want to work in PA.

^^ If any of that changes, don't go to Villanova. UConn shouldn't even be considered.

Thanks, this is what I figured.

If OP had specific, attainable career goals she was gunning for from Nova, then I would probably agree with you.

That's fair. OP - when you say small firm/local gov't, what do you mean? Anything particular in mind?

Because the path to a small employment firm, for instance, is very different than say the path to a local District Attorney's Office. Knowing the difference and planning summers/externships/networking accordingly is important.
