Honestly I'm not sure why so many people apply to Case. If I got into Case and Cleveland-Marshall, I'd probably go to Cleveland-Marshall because I don't see anything better about Case, and it's cheaper to go to Cleveland-Marshall.
OSU is my first choice as well. It has more of a national rep and is supposed to be the best law school in Ohio.
I want to live/work in Pittsburgh after graduation.
1.) A search on martindale-hubbell shows 53 attorneys that graduated from Case working in the 'Burgh. OSU has 35 and CSU has 21.
2.) A search on NALP shows that the same 4 firms recruit on campus at both Case and OSU. It showed 0 for CSU.
2.) A search on USNews will show a comparable starting salary, job placement rate, overall bar passage rate, judge/peer assessment rating, etc...for Case and OSU (With Case being higher on some of these)
With that said, I think it depends on where you want to end up after graduation. Once you know that, I feel that Case can open the same doors as OSU in certain areas.
