So outside of the T14, which ones are the best? So far I've gotten into BC, George Washington, BU, Notre Dame with a little cash, and half scholarships at William and Mary and Washington and Lee. So where would you rank these schools against one another? Personally I'd put BC and George Washington at the top followed by BU and Notre Dame followed by William and Mary and Washington and Lee. I know they're giving me some money, but I just don't see them as quite as good as either BC or George Washington in terms of big firm placement.

I agree, I actually got a charcoal suit for interviews a little while ago from Brooks Brothers and it looks very snappy. Probably the best single article of clothing I have ever had the good taste to let a woman pick out for me.

I'm surprised by the responses to this poll. I worked my ass off in college. Oh well, hope it's gotten me ready for law school.

thanks, I don't plan on it. I know that statistic is very misleading and a poor indicator of real employment opportunities. It seems that some of the schools have an advantage in a respective job market due to location and alumni network however. This is something that I will probably pay more attention to. I think for me the top schools are BC, Notre Dame, and GW with W&L not far behind.

Yeah I'll prob. be going to BC. Hopefully I'll get some money. See you at the first accepted students reception.

So I've gotten into BC, BU, Notre Dame $, Washington and Lee $$, William and Mary $$, and George Washington. I'm not really locked into any one school and I'm not really set on any one place to practice, and I'm open to living anywhere, but I am really interested in trying to get the best possible job out of Law School and keeping my expenses down. I know, It's not exactly the noblest thing ever...
So where do you think?

Hey thanks alot. Yeah it seems to be a little more national, but how is it in terms of placing at the BigLaw firms and getting top paying jobs compared to BC? They seem pretty much the same to me. Some people have gone on record saying ND is a little overrated although I have a tough time beleiving that since the name is such a big one.

Just got accepted to Notre Dame today and they offered me some money too. Pretty excited but I'm just wondering what career asperations you can have coming from south bend. There can't be too many BigLaw jobs in the area. Do the go to DC, Chicago? They seem to have good career prospects but I don't understand where. Also, if anybody could compare them to BC in terms of job prospects that would be great.
