What is your opinion of the University of Kentucky? I use this as my own arbitrary cut-off at roughly
Are there any advantages to looking at top Canadian schools? Are there benefits in the financial aid

On an unrelated note, is anyone aware of a free Windows graphing utility to plot functions on a 2D
What is the process for selection for Law Review?
#1. There is no rank cutoff. After the top 20-30 schools, US news gets quite wonky. Any "University of XYZ" will probably be fine. But any school can be a bad decision if it involves too much debt. Almost all the horror stories come from people who were heavily indebted AND couldn't find a job. If you have no debt and no family to support, hacking it as a solo isn't nearly as bad.
#2. Advantage: may allow you to work in Canada, can study civil law at McGill. In general, the Canadian market is much less saturated than the US market. I wouldn't recommend a Canadian school for US practice. Even the U of Toronto only places a handful of people in the US post graduation.
#3. As far as admissions, maybe a small boost. For jobs, wouldn't really matter.
#4. Law review: depends on school. Usually is based on grades, a writing competition, or some combination thereof.
