US News Law school rankings (the-after-you-pay-$15-section-online).
On another note, you can see Wash & Lee's salary statistics are only for the top ~25% (56% reporting of 56% in private sector) while William and Mary's are for the top ~40% (79% reporting of 53% in private sector).
But of course, salaries are relative to the cost of living and person preferences (by that I mean, I could open up Joe the Plumber school of law in New York (Manhattan) and get it accredited - and then have 6 figure starting salaries [and it not be a complete lie]).
Wash & Lee has double the Article III federal judge clerkships though.
William and Mary 13% more employed at graduation.
And the deal breaker is - - - instate tuition (if you are from there, if not then...personal preference could prevail).
