I have been accepted to Missouri Kansas City (Tier 3) and have been deferred at U of L and Kentucky. I will hear back from them this week or the next, and will be planning visits if needed, but I will need to make a decision quickly considering deposit deadlines are fast approaching and I need to sign a new lease wherever I end up.
So, to be prepared, I would like yall's rankings of the three schools (best choice to least best choice). Here is some of my background:
Live in Missouri, but would be happy to practice in Missouri or Kentucky.
I am a military brat, so I would prefer to have a degree that has some versatility in allowing me to have good employment options in different regions.
I do not have one particular area of interest in Law, and am keeping my options open, but I do speak Spanish so will most likely want to do something using that.
Moving to Kansas City would be easier since I only live 2 hours away.
UMKC - COA $48,000
Kentucky - COA $54,000
Louisville - COA $56,000
I am most worried about employment prospects after graduation, and would be interested in working corporate law for a spell then working in public interest once I am financially secure.
I know that the rankings would say Kentucky, U of L, then UMKC, but am interested if anyone says anything different. I have yet to have an 'ah hah!' moment at either school where I feel that this one is the right choice.
