My two top accepted law schools are Vermont Law School and also S.J. Quinney in Utah. I am interested in environmental law, and while Vermont is ranked #1, I'm still torn.
Vermont Law school is in South Royalton, a town of about 3,000 people, with the nearest "big" city about an hour away. It's ranked a third-tier law school otherwise. It is just a law school, not a full college. Bar passing rate is about 60%.
The University of Utah Law School is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The entire state has so many activities and sites that are very intriguing. Also being located in a big city has appeal. It's ranked 56th overall. Bar pass rate about 92%
I'm struggling weighting the environmental rankings with the environmental surroundings. My girlfriend's up for either, but wonders what she'd do (she's an RN) in such a small city while I'm studying, since Vermont's college takes up over 2,200 of the 3,000 people. I've thought the same thing, but then the #1 ranking comes back into my mind.
