Penn or Duke?

Postby BoomBoom1986 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:54 pm

Which school is "better"? From what I can tell, they have very similar job prospects. Penn may have an edge in BigLaw placement, but Duke does better with clerkships. Any thoughts or are they peer schools despite the slight difference in rankings?

They are both great schools man. It's very hard to say which one is "better" without knowing more information about your career goals, personality, etc.

All I care about are job prospects.

Visit both, talk to current students, attend the one that you like the best.
