If I could manage a full ride from both schools and keep CA residency, can people weigh in on which they would prefer? I know State is ranked higher but I don't place a whole lot of weight on USNWR for anything but vaguely classifying tiers.
I wouldn't worry about losing your CA residency, it's so easy to get back. Have you visited both schools? I agree that they're pretty similar, but maybe you will get a better sense from seeing both. Personally, I'd go with ASU, but I have family in Phoenix.
Have not seen the campuses, planning on visiting in late March. So you think it's pretty much a toss up and I should basically decide based on how I feel about the campuses? That is helpful, thanks.
UA has a prettier campus, ASU is in Phoenix. ASU is moving downtown your 2L year to a fancy new crystal palace, so that's nice, and I have really liked downtown Phoenix. Phoenix is huge so there are more opportunities for placement during school. That said, UA still places people pretty much just as well in Phoenix after school and during the summers. Also, don't come to Arizona unless you're at least ok with practicing here, the main advantage UA and ASU have on the Cali schools is that the market here is relatively strong, the state schools place really well here, and we don't get that much competition from out of staters.
