Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Virginia Schools that aren't UVA

"The new dean is young and ambitious (1st in class at Yale and has argued in front of the supreme court), so this 3rd year intitiative will very much direct the rest of his career. With this motivation in mind, I believe in him to make W&L stronger."

"First, I'll be W&L in the fall, so that may impact how I view the school

Washington and Lee places much better than people give them credit for. Clerkship percentage for 2007 grads was 19%. Around 60% went private practice, with a starting salary median of 110,000. The private practice and starting salary could be higher, but W&L grads are notorious for wanting to find a "comfortable job" rather than high salary. I would much rather take 100,000 in Charlotte than 160K in NYC.

So, I feel there is at least a 50% (60%/2 + 19%) chance to land a extremely good job. I decided on W&L and low debt over BC, wisconsin, iowa, UNC, washington university in st.louis, and a few other schools."

For International Business Law/IP Law

Money is not a factor

Job prospect is my first priority, but don't care about region

Will consider transferring to a better school if my grades after the first year are strong enough.

Thanks for the input, it is greatly appreciated!!!
