Choosing the Right Law School / We need US News City Rankings
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:52:23 AM »
USNEWS needs to rank cities according to the best Job Markets for new Lawyers.

Most people have told me on here that outside of the top 20 or 30 schools you should use location as the dominant factor. 
How am I really going to decide between  Kansas City and Spokane, Wa?   Albuquerque and Cleveland?  Crime and Salary data only give me a small piece of the puzzle.

I care about level of education, but prospects after law school are probably more important to me.

Help me Decider!

Out of the schools I've been accepted to I've chosen the University of Kansas.

The only other school currently in consideration is Akron, with a full tuition scholarship (I have to be in the top 10% of the class to keep the scholarship beyond the first year)

Assuming (may be a stretch) I'm also accepted to UNLV, New Mexico, and Gonzaga, should I consider any of them over Kansas?

I won't get in-state tuition at any of them. (Only one public school in my state)
I currently live close to Las Vegas

LSN is linked below.
Thanks.

Do any of you know where I can find the rankings methodology?

Do you have a link you could give me?

I've heard that Kansas also places a few students in the mountain west.

I honestly don't know which market I want to work in because I'm not that familiar with either. It's kind of a toss-up, so I'm defaulting back to expense and rank for my decision.  I'm really familiar with Las Vegas, and there's still a chance that i'll end up at UNLV, but they seem to be a little GPA happy this year.

How much stock should I put on the average starting salaries that are reported to US news?

The market I want to work in only has two schools.  They both have average GPAs of 3.6+
I've been rejected by one and I'm waiting to hear back from the other.

I'm probably planning on working for 4 or 5 years near the school I attend and then I might try to move back.

If I don't want to work in either market will it really make any difference?

If my choice is between Gonzaga (T3) and Kansas (66)

Should rank, or the market I want to work in be more important?

I don't really know if I'd rather work in Spokane or Kansas City.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Is this Really the Case?

Businesses often give money back guarantees based on the fact that very few consumers actually collect the guarantee money. 
If LEEWS would pay for your law school tuition in the case that you didn't get in the top 1/3, then you may have a pretty compelling case, but I doubt too many are taking the time and trouble to collect on the guarantee for $150.00
