My poor opinion of Wake is based on the following TLS review:
Between the school’s low tuition and solid career prospects, any student looking to practice in North Carolina would be foolish not to include Wake Forest School of Law on her short list. One won’t find a big-city experience here, though. And the Wake clinical offerings and complaints against the facilities should be considered just as heavily as the school’s great professors and regional reputation.
This was my personal stance on the school and how I feel about it, and that is what I wrote - it indeed on MY personal list of 19 schools at the bottom.
I regret if I have offended any TLSers by sharing my personal views on the school on here.
You can stuff your sorries in a sack, mister!
In all seriousness, congrats on Wisconsin. However, the article on TLS is just one opinion. You may consider Wisconsin to be better but in reality, within their separate markets (because they are both regional schools), Wake and Wisconsin are somewhat peer schools. Both place similarly into NLJ 250 positions, clerkship is similar, ect.
edit: And in my opinion since we are dishing out opinions here, Wake has an edge because seriously, who the heck wants to work in the northwest or in Wisconsin? I'd much rather take the South Atlantic/i95 corridor.
