Before you decide, you should look at the placement record for both schools. In an ideal world, it wouldn't matter where you went because a person should be judged on their abilities. However, law firms will judge you by the school you went to. Ask each school how many of their students were employed in a law related position at graduation. If Toledo is 25% vs. IU with 75%, then you have some thinking to do. Do not go by the 9 months or 1 year after graduation figures, people may have taken less than desirable jobs due to their outstanding school loans. Law school is not a goal; it is your stepping-stone to a law career. Find out what kind of jobs each school’s graduates enjoy.
