I'm pretty wide open. I'm kind of a Pacific Northwest bug (most of my apps. are there). Is Valpo that regionally limited? Years ago when I was accepted, a local alum even called me from a nearby town and a faculty member called me at home. Thanks for the feedback!
Have you applied to Willamette? I'd be hesitant to leave the PNW for Indiana, but I know little about either. I do know that Indiana is really flat. As far as I know all T3 and T4 schools are pretty regionally limited when it comes to placement, but who cares? You couldn't pay me enough to live in NY, LA, or Chicago. To many damn people, too little time and space for reflection and living life. Besides, I think most of this school prestige crap is hooey. A professional is only as good as he makes himself. Law school is just a necessary step to becoming a lawyer.
Go someplace you want to live for three years and maybe beyond. And don't just be a student; make yourself a member of the community. A lawyer should be to the law what a plumber is to the town's pipes.
