Assuming all things equal (tuition, scholarships, equal preference for location, ect.) where would you all go?

Having applied to all of these schools last cycle, all possess many differences which are better fit for one person's situation to the next. Comparing them as if these differences didn't exist would be a terrible way to select a law school.

Obviously I won't be making my decision based on a poll from this website. Just curious of the opinions, but I appreciate the concern.

Just selected American for you on the poll. Hope that helps....

Also, I really think polls like this aren't too useful with seat deposit deadlines so far away. I'm sure you're waiting on other schools as well and if I learned anything from applying last cycle, the next 3-5 months can really become a roller coaster ride.

Edit- It's not that I'm concerned really but you're not going to get any new information with such a general thread that you can't find after a few simple searches of old ones. As to the poll, no one can really give you a good opinion without more information and any results are pretty much going to be completely unhelpful. All can be solid schools potentially depending on one's individual goals and aspirations.

Temple has better firm opportunities in Phila, Govt/Pi work for American. Villanova is below Temple, Penn and Rutgers for Phila jobs, and GMU is good for VA firms, but bad for DC (unless government/PI).

If I had to pick between those schools, i'd go to American. American probably has the largest alumni base out of the schools listed and has more employers come to the school than the other schools listed. That said, Georgetown still dominates DC, and i'd retake the lsat.

I already has an associate spot /summer internships locked for when I graduate if I need it and want to stay in my current area. That said I also don't believe it is that dire.

If you've got a job lined up, i'd go to whichever area you like better-DC or Phila.
