What do you all think:
Chapman with 12K or Southwestern?
This should probably be an easy call in favor of Southwestern, especially if you have BIGLAW aspirations, but I'm just not sure. Southwestern just didn't feel that good to me when I visited as opposed to Chapman which I really liked. I know you visited Chapman. Did you visit Southwestern?
No, its not an easy call in favor of Southwestern. I would probably pick Chapman with $$$. Southwestern is what it is, while Chapman is a school on the rise. I dont like Southwesterns attrition rate and although their employment numbers beat out Chapman for now, that gap should close a bit in the coming years. I also dont think the VERY small edge Southwestern has in placing its graduates in Big Law firms warrants an extra 12k a year.
