Actually, I am from Chicago, went to U of C, and I am looking for a change of scenery. I only applied to southern schools, and Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi look to be the three that I am going to decide on.
I want to live and work in the south, I just want a little bit of flexibility down there, such that I dont want to go to Mississippi and have no option other than working in Mississippi, or go to Kentucky and not be able to possibly work in Tennessee after graduation. I just want a little bit of geographical options. Hopefully my grades will make up for a lacking in regional recruitment.
with that said, I am placing a large emphasis on enjoying my three years of law school. I plan on studying hard and partying harder. Three years is a long time, and I really hated U of C's social atmosphere, and i dont plan on repeating that mistake. I think earning a lighter salary in a southern state is worth it, because the cost of living is lower and the weather nicer -- and in my opinion the girls are cuter :-).
I would, however; like to have the option of earning some good money, possibily, eventually, moving to a big city, but a big city in the south, not the North, such as; Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham, etc. So which of the three has better southern mobility? I am guessing either Tennessee or Kentucky?
How does everyone like living and working in Mississippi and tennessee and kentucky? Any other opinions on each respective law school
The more input the better, and thanks for all of your help so far, chris.
