Law School Admissions / Re: Wyoming ($$$$) v. Iowa/Arizona/Kansas Love Wy area/brother, yet sig. lwr ran« on: February 27, 2008, 03:14:58 PM »
I've posted this before, however my little brother's going off to University of Wyoming with a full scholarship and some sort of honors program. I really, really want to be close to him (and I love the Denver/Wyoming area as does he), however am really concerned about taking Wyoming (even with full scholarship) over Arizona, Iowa and Kansas.
I'm not aiming for biglaw, so I'd be happy with a small firm where I can be part of the team and make partner. CU and UW rejected me, I'm pending at Utah, and I'm not keen on a large school like Denver.
U Arizona's on the border which leaves me concerned, Kansas is a great atmosphere yet not portable and Iowa is highly ranked and would be hard to turn down yet it's in the midwest and I'm not fond of the midwest and would want to go back out west/southwest in any case.
Anyone else familiar with U Wyoming? How much would I be shooting myself in the foot?
I would go wherever you want to practice. I think it is nearly that simple. I think that is even more applicable because you are not going to schools that are ranked very well. If you were going to a T14 school then location wouldn't be as big of a deal. But because your schools are lower ranked there is a much bigger advantage going to local schools.
