Wash U ($) vs. Vandy

Postby dnesto01 » Thu Feb 25, 2010 10:09 pm

Just got a 20k a year scholarship from Wash U. and still have not heard anything from Vandy about scholarship money (don't think it has come out yet). If I wanted to work in NY which would you go with?

I'm in the same situation as you. I've received 30k from WUSTL but haven't heard from Vandy yet. I however want to work in D.C.

People really think that Wash U. gives you no shot at BigLaw in NYC?

its not "no shot" but the difference between Vandy and Wash U is still probably worth just a little more than 20K/year.. pretty close call tho.

Nope. 8% of 2Ls at V100 in 2006

Thanks for the input everyone. Do people think that Vandy is rising in the rankings while Wash U. is going the other way?

Lol people at WashU seem to think its the opposite actually and that they'll end up taking Vandy's spot in the rankings either this year or pretty soon thereafter....

Those numbers are four years old and prior to ITE. Do you have any more up to date numbers?
