I visited GA State a few weeks ago and was very unimpressed. From harrassing bums on the sidewalk to trashy buildings/classrooms & low-tech facilities, I was absolutely appalled. Granted, their in-state tuition is about as cheap as it gets - but something has to be said for quality of experience right? I was initially leaning towards Samford because I know a lot of people there AND their campus (library, law school, integrated technology) are top notch (not to mention all the undergrad eye-candy). But law school isn't about an experience, it's about an education - or at least I'm trying to convince myself of that. I have heard it's very difficult finding employment in a different state than your law school. Anyway, I suppose I will reluctantly take the economic, more convenient option in lieu of a fun, friendly, higher quality atmosphere. I wish I had never visited Samford - they obviously have more money than they know what to do with, and those Birmingham folks know how to roll out the welcome mat. Staying in Atlanta has it's advantages though, so hopefully I can get past the runned-down look. I've got until June to decide.
