I'm really caught between these two schools. I live in Dallas right now so SMU certainly would be my easiest option and would probably give me a leg up in the Dallas and larger Texas markets. My interest lies in international law, a field in which both schools seem to be particularly strong. I wouldn't mind staying in Texas for a few years after law school but I ultimately would like to be more mobile (NY, Chicago). Would the Tulane degree potentially provide me with a mobility that SMU may not? Also, while I haven't received a financial aid package from either, I have been hearing that SMU's financial aid is much more generous so my debt would be a lot less (N.O. is also more expensive than Dallas too, I believe). Could anyone verify this info and/or add their 2 cents?
