Disclaimer: I'm a 0L who applied as well. While I understand Irvine is really competitive to get into, I assume it is a long ways away from gaining the kind of reputation that would ensure employment at a Biglaw firm in CA. We just can't predict where they will fall in ranking and can't know if their reputation will mean anything. However, this is just my speculation. But if you're completely opposed to staying in Chicago or the midwest in general for a few years/life than I would say Irivine. I would attend both of their Admitted Students Day events. That's what I'll be doing as I choose between Washington University in St. Louis and UC Hastings in SF.

I will do that. Thank you for all your input.

Choosing the Right Law School / Which school should I choose?

Alright, so I've got a little dilemma on my hands and I'd appreciate any feedback:

What do I choose?
My top two choices are Washington University in St. Louis and UC Hastings.

Washington offered $18,000 and Hastings offered $10,000 so far on top of whatever else they will send out sometime next month.
I plan on visiting both in March. What scares me about Washington is the midwest in general (I'm a Cali boy) and what scares me about Hastings is the 49% employment at graduation as compared to Washington's 88%. Any suggestions?
