Please help- Alabama v SMU v Tulane

Please help- Alabama v SMU v Tulane
« on: February 28, 2008, 12:32:37 PM »
30k at Tulane, full ride at Alabama, and 24k at SMU.  I want to do at least a fairly prestigious clerkship, work in a firm for a few years, and then hang my own shingle.  I am really struggling with the choice between these three.  Any insight would be helpful.

Tulane or Alabama. SMU doesn't place well with clerkships- it had zero this year and last. Tulane has 2 this year and Alabama has 3 or 4.
