I was just looking for information about when to expect to be notified about my assignment and saw a similar post last year.  It seems like they got their assignments the first or second week of January.  Has anybody who is going to the March COT already gotten their assignments?

Choosing the Right Law School / UIUC vs Vanderbilt
« on: April 06, 2005, 01:34:06 PM »
I was 95% sure that I was going to UIUC, and have even paid the initial deposit of $500, but then Vanderbilt gave me a surprise yesterday by offering me a fairly substantial scholarship of $75,000.

Please tell me your opinion of where I should go and why.  The more input the better.  Should I still go to UIUC with a full tuition scholarship or go to Vanderbilt, which will cost around $7,000 a year.  I would like the option of working in China in the future, and wouldn't mind living in Chicago.  It seems like there are a lot of law firms there with offices in China; UIUC also seems like it has more asian law comparitive classes available, but Vanderbilt is more national it seems, so I would have more flexibility of where to live after graduation.  Are these schools really that different apart from the US News and World report ranking?

I would sincerely appreciate any input on this decision.


Oh by the way, in case you're wondering:
LSAT: 166
UGPA: 3.71

I'm also a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, speak Chinese fluently and Japanese at an intermediate level, and have had several years of WE experience in my undergraduate field of study.
