Choosing the Right Law School / Choosing between T4's
« on: May 12, 2011, 01:45:41 PM »
Hi everyone,

I find myself with quite a hard decision to make.  My choices for school have come down to Western New England and Roger Williams.  I was also accepted to suffolk and maine but neither school offered me any money whereas WNE is offering 22k a year and RWU 18k a year.  I was advised by many people to consider the schools that offer me the money because as far as job recruiting goes there is not much difference in hiring between T3 and T4 schools and 50K in debt is alot less then over 120K in debt in the future.  I guess my question is, which school should i choose?  RWU ends up being roughly 10k more over the 3 years, not that much of a difference.  At the moment I am leaning more toward WNE, as one of my best friends will be a 2L there next year and I can see that being of some benefit.  He is also the school parliamentarian and could most likely get me involved in the student government, which is something I would very much like to do.  The location factor is what seems to be making this a harder decision for me.  During undergrad I spent a great deal of time in the bristol RI area as I dated a girl who went to RWU.  I know the area well, it's beautiful and I really enjoy the atmosphere of the town and school.  Springfield on the other hand is not as nice of an area, although the suburban area that the school is situated on is very appealing to me along with the atmosphere of the school itself. 

Any input from anyone on these boards would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
