Thanks, I got my acceptance letter last Friday.

Transferring / Michigan State Uni. (MSU) or Rutgers-Newark?
« on: November 22, 2006, 01:56:03 PM »
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 (  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.
