Assuming location is not an issue, what is my best choice?

this is a tad early, you haven't even heard from W&L about money yet.

Also, although it was not an option in the poll, feel free to say that neither three are "worth it"...

I know, but given my numbers I'm pretty darn sure I won't be getting any cash from W&L.

I got the same offer from Loyola, and I expect something from W&L.

We seem to be in to a lot of the same schools Veritas, have you narrowed it down yet?

I could see someone choosing W&L over Fordham if they wanted warmer weather, D.C. placement, and/or to work in the Southeast over NYC.

I think there are quite a few reasons to choose W&L over Fordham...like everything unless you want NYC or bust. I haven't heard from Fordham yet, but I'm in at W&L and depending on the money I'll be strongly considering it. Even though I'm from NY, I'm not sure being in DC or even somewhere in the Southeast would be so bad after all, and the atmosphere at W&L (if you like places like Lexington, VA, better than places like Manhattan) can be a huge plus. Hopefully you get some money at W&L, OP, good luck!

Does W&L really have that good of placement for DC? Is it comparable to how Fordham places in NYC?
