That is what I am running into. Bama has offered a ton of money, and I have family there, so I'm not completely adverse to working in B'ham, but I grew up in Alpharetta and want to stay in Atlanta, so UGA is very, very, high on my list of schools, but their scholarship offer is about a third of what Bama is offering. I'm hoping that if I hold out till the end, UGA will up their offer or Bama will drop some of their stipulations. I just don't want to start negotiating yet and run the risk of them taking back what they have already offered.
Well having family back in B'ham will give you a shot at working there even out of UGA. For 1L OCI, there are something like 15 firms, around a third from B'ham. They even have the recruiters from law firms in that area come and give a special presentation around Dec 1st. Going to UGA gives you a good shot at both GA and AL, don't think the same can be said of going to Alabama.
