Thank you for your responses!
It seems that if I want to do election law, I'll have to consider going to a school lower in the rankings...interesting. Is this a tradeoff I should make? I keep hearing that law school is about going to the best schools possible. Rokomotion, you mentioned applying to OSU as a backup, perhaps I'll do that.
I wonder why more schools don't offer courses in this, especially after Bush v. Gore. Another thought I had is to contact the schools directly and just ask if they have an election law program. Is that an obnoxious question to ask the schools? Still new at this, I'm not quite sure what questions are appropriate.
No, that's uninteresting and false. Don't worry about specialty programs and rankings, just go to the best school for you. Maybe you won't get to study Election Law in Law School, but you are going to have much more job opportunities in this area after law school if you went to NYU than you would with an Election Law Certificate from Ohio State.
This isn't undergrad, don't follow a specific program.
