Am I absolutely crazy to think that Stanford is a better choice for policy-related/DC law/litigation in DC that involves the fedgov than Harvard? I know it's a broad area but I'm a 0L and don't know what I'll actually end up doing. Does anyone want to tell me I'm stupid, or right or, have any thoughts on this choice?
Debt out of both would be the same.

I'm not sure I agree with this. SLS has an edge for clerkship placement, but I think when it comes to DC jobs Harvard's much larger network actually gives it a bigger advantage. Even adjusted for size, I think HLS dominates SLS at the prestigious DC firms, and in government policy jobs.
