Those posts were back from early 2012 and I feel like wustl has gained a little more recognition since then. Would any 3Ls be willing to discuss current Midwest job prospects? Big law and otherwise. Does wustl with $$-$$$ make sense over a t14 with nothing?
If this has been discussed in other more recent pages just let me know. Thanks!
The decision really requires exact numbers and more information about you and your goals. If you're from St. Louis and want to practice here, then WUSTL with a significant scholarship is probably a pretty good idea. If you're not from St. Louis, then it's a lot tougher to get a solid job. Also, don't apply ED to WUSTL. Sticker is a tough burden to take on, but even the lower T14 has about double the firm placement of WUSTL.
