Minnesota or William&Mary?

Postby yuytoutou » Sun Feb 18, 2018 12:59 am

Hi there.

I am struggling to choose between UMinnesota Law and William&Mary, both offered me with comparable scholarships.

Although Minnesota has a higher ranking and a preferable location for me (as of now), it appears that the employment locations of W&M is more diverse. In contrast a overwhelming number of graduates from UMinnesota are employed in Minnesota.

Because I probably will not to choose to stay in Minnesota after graduation, I wonder which one is the better choice.

Any advice?

Are you from Virginia? Where do you want to work?

I am neither from Virginia nor Minnesota. I intend to work somewhere in the east or west coast.

Aim for the best school that places in your intended area of work where you also can get a good scholarship. Those schools are primarily local. I went to wm for undergrad and even that was focused heavily on DC and Virginia.

It sounds like you need to think more about where exactly you want to work and choose a law school that gives you the best chance of getting there. But Minnesota definitely sounds like an awful choice.
