Try again. Don't go to law school yet, but I'd be a total dumbbass to have architectural style influence my decision in any way.
I don't completely agree with this. I was choosing between peer schools with very similar scholarships. The choice between schools was so tight that I was looking at *every* consideration, including how comfortable I felt in the buidings.
I would argue that the choice between two law schools is NEVER
close enough to where "beauty" of the buildings should make the difference. There are too many highly variable factors that truly matter.
I guess it all comes down to your priorities
Really? If my cycle and the cycles of many people I know are any indication, I'd bet this happens much more often than never. Perhaps this is overstating the case. Did the beauty of the school make *the* difference in these decisions? Probably not, but it certainly played a more-than-trivial role. And why should this be surprising? Apart from purely personal considerations, it seems that the aesthetics of law schools are one of the only factors that very clearly distinguish peer schools from one another.
On the other hand, I might just be a sucker for pretty things.
