Of course I'm biased by my hope, but I feel like W&M has better national placement and prestige than most of the schools in the same range. At least at my Texas firm, I've been very surprised at how impressed people are by W&M, even compared to all of the Texas schools, except UT.
On the other hand, I do worry about it being in a super-saturated market, but it sounds like if you can do well, you can have great job options.
I'm hoping the doom and gloom of the legal job market will at least be a little rosier in two years.
Blind optimism, maybe.
