Got into MSU and Rutgers-Newark. I know Rutgers is ranked in 80 and MSU is a T4 however, based from the increasing prestige and the upward stats in their admitted students, I'm predicting MSU will become a top T2 school in the future (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_State_University_College_of_Law
). If you compare MSU's LSAT/GPA it's ranked up there with the top T2s. Most Big 10 law schools are T1 or T2 as well.
I'm planning to practice overseas and I feel school name recognition is very important and Michigan State is probably more recognized than Rutgers outside the US. By going to MSU I know I will be taking a big chance (like buying stocks) that the school will move up based on my research.
With all that was said, I want to hear what you all have to say. What are your thoughts on MSU (going up, down?) or should I choose the school based on current rankings? Like I said, I'm going to practice oversea so locality of the school isn't an issue.
