Chances are good I'll end up here. I love it.
This is battling it out with WUSTL in my mind right now, but I'll give an edge to UMN so far. Why do you like it so much, Josh?
Ah. Yes I applied to WUSTL too. It will be especially interesting if WUSTL offers more money. We'll see what happens when all the cards are on the table, but right now Minnesota is my first choice. But I really think BU and Wisconsin are the big potential challengers... assuming I get accepted to them.
At any rate: Minneapolis > St. Louis in my mind. Cleaner, bigger metro area. Larger legal market access. (Mpls, Chicago) School is traditionally rated higher than WUSTL anyways. The clinics rock and they have a great mix of theory/practical in their curriculum. The library is AWESOME..4 floors, a bunch of labs, tons of private study space, and the 7th largest law library collection in the country.
I could keep going. Its awesome. The buildings not great gothic architecture or anything, but its certainly not a dump. Plus the University of Minnesota campus is GORGEOUS in the spring/fall. Its on the Mississippi river and has the whole gothic architecture, grassy mall, etc. going for it.
