I couldnt agree more with the posters. If you want to work anywhere or aren't sure where, it's probably best to go to a top 100 or top 50- a national school. If your staying in the area, then a well respected t3/t4 will be fine. In cleveland we have Case (#51)and CSU (t3). But I took a look at the Jones Day roster, and was surprised to see about equal numbers of grads there. Pretty impressive. Also, many many many judge's and politicians here went to CSU. I have a shot at Case, but I am planning on CSU since I will be in the running for "a decent scholarship" per the admissions office. She seemed to think I had an excellent shot for a good amount of money. Plus then I wont be 100k in debt...but it all depends. If there is a huge difference in salary, maybe loans won't matter. But then, maybe in the end you will have more money to live on at a slightly lower paying job without loan payments too, and the school may also give you that high paying job as well. The most important thing in the job hunt in my opinion is how your grades are. If I was top 5% at CSU I would probably be in a better spot than top 25% at Case.
