I am curious as to why everyone, well almost everyone, on this board places W&L higher than Emory in the south. If you look at Atlanta [the largest city and undoubtedly the legal and financial hub of the south], W&L only placed FOUR students in Georgia and I am assuming that all of them went to Atlanta. Furthermore, if you look at the amount of students that W&L placed in southern states, it of course placed the most in Virginia [which I assume the majority went NE VA, i.e. DC - which is NOT the south], but outside of that, Florida was the next best with 6 students. Perhaps I do not understand the idea behind this thread, but are we not ranking the best schools in the south and shouldnt placement within the south be the MAIN factor? All of you 0Ls don't know yet, but where your law school places the most students becomes very important when you are looking for jobs. Therefore, I think W&L should enjoy a higher ranking than Emory in the Mid Atlantic region, but not in the south.
