Honestly, I am leaning towards WUSTL, but please give me some reasons why WUSTL that I am not seeing.

UMN!?

You can actually hear cuse's incredulous exclamation to himself as he read this, lol

Go to lawschooltransparency and lawschoolnumbers to compare the two schools from an employment perspective. Consider what you want to do and where you want to work, and the likelihood of both of those factors at each school. Chances are quite good that you'll find WUSTL is the better option for you if your debt load will be the same.

Then we can add you to the WUSTLUT army on the TLS Class of thread :D

okay now i feel bad. There are probably reasons why one would choose UMN over WUSTL at equal cost:

1. If you have some personal reason to stay in Minnesota (E.g. SO...family...)
2. If you're from Minnesota and only want to practice in Minnesota.
3. If you hate St. Louis/WashU/Missouri for some reason

Going to UMN will materially limit your geographic reach. Limiting geographic reach is less of a risk if it's Chicago or NYC or some major market. But I can't imagine there are many legal jobs in Minnesota, and i can't imagine that they pay very well.

WUSTL isn't the land of milk and honey by no means, it's tough if you don't do well. But major firms across a variety of markets are still interested in meeting us. And having WUSTL on your resume will better than having UMN when you mass mail to any market minus Minnesota.

Btw i'm assuming that "equal cost" means fairly cheap. If you have a full ride to both schools, then i guess it's more understandable if you pick UMN for some reason, since u'll have the lowest debt possible. Low reward but low risk.

But if you're paying 100k or similar for both schools, then WUSTL hands down. There's a price point at which you shouldn't attend either school, but that's a personal decision for you.

It really isn't hard to out-cool Minnesota. I don't think that should be our pitch to this guy.

You all are undervaluing the Minnesota "cool" factor. Those people build shacks on frozen lakes and then cut holes in the bottom of them. Also, it is literally much cooler in Minnesota.

Wash U is still [probably] the correct choice, but don't you tell me Minnesota isn't cool.

The Minnesota Karma Train is appropriate for most mentions of MN.

Agreed with ppl above. @desichhori, unless you are from MN or wish to target MN for employment, WUSTL wins. Good luck with your decision!

1. Blue. Because my best friend called dibs on red in second grade.

2. Yeah u guys were pretty cool. It was almost worth blowing off working on my brief

3. Bobsledding. Because Cool Running

4. Who the fuck doesn't like cookies? One time I asked the worker at Great American Cookie what her favorite cookie was, she said she didn't like cookies. I said she was in the wrong line of work. Instantly regretted it and felt bad after. Roommates got a good kick out of it though

5. I would have said Volcano Burrito, but the fuckers discontinued that. I'd say the new Quesarito cuz i'm too lazy to eat a burrito and a quesadilla separately. Plus drink. Plus those little cinnamon things.

6. Poop baseball hands down.

1. Not having a stroke when the gunners delay the lecture and/or say something stupid. In all seriousness, maintaining a balance between school/life. Law school can consume everything if you let it and make you neglect everything from household chores and exercise to relationships and hobbies. Better to let it consume your life and do well instead of having fun and doing poorly for your first year. But I had friends and classmates who were able to balance much better than I did and I admire the fuck out of them for that.

2. Favorite part of law school: The trial-by-fire bonding experience you go through 1L year with your friends.

Favorite part of St. Louis: It's so fucking cheap to live here. Seriously you wouldn't believe how irresponsible I am with money and I still don't have to worry about keeping costs down.

3. Netflix...and stuff that's legal in certain states. Such as, and purely hypothetically, Colorado
