UCLA vs. Georgetown even money, full tuition

Postby tarheelz » Tue May 11, 2010 9:42 am

Hi guys,

Alright, in a head to head face off of law schools - which would maximize my opportunities post-graduating in this economy???

I do not know what I want to do after graduation, so I'm really looking for the school that across the board would help me out the most in a variety of ways. Some considerations:

a) I'm from the east coast and would be happy for a west coast adventure/complete change of pace
b) I'm concerned about the CA economy in the long-term. Seems like UCLA is a near-feeder to LA law community but hiring is probably not what it used to be. Also, the tuition is on its way up there, too.
c) I'm debt averse but these are my options - full tuition payments at both schools. Oh, joy.

Since you didn't get money at either, Georgetown.

Yea, that's the way I'm leaning. Despite being only one ranking point apart (for whatever "rankings" are worth...). I might go to LA to visit just to see.

If you want to be in Cali, I'd say UCLA. Hell, I want to be in Cali.

Georgetown unless you want California for Sure. In that case, UCLA for sure. Georgetown will give you more national reach.
