NW v. Mich. v. Penn

Transferring from a T30 and have been accepted to all these schools. Having a difficult time truly distinguishing between them and deciding which one to accept. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I assume there are a handful of others who have been accepted to all or a couple of these schools; your thoughts on how you're deciding amongst them would be great.

Need details. Target market being the most important.

No specific target market - biglaw, but open to many different geographic locations, including but not limited to: Chicago, DC, Colorado, California (probably not NYC, but open to it).

Well, where do you have ties? If you don't have ties to a market, you aren't going to have much success there (unless it's NYC).

Based on your preferred markets & on your aversion to NYC, Northwestern might be the best choice.

All three are great options. From which law school are you transferring ? Iowa ? Indiana ?
