if you go to emory, you will most likely land a job in atlanta. but since you want to practice in a HUGE city, going to UW will give you a shot at chicago, which is the 3rd largest city in the US. tulane probably doesnt have the reputation to get a great job outside of louisiana straight out of graduation and new orleans isnt that big of a city.I would choose UW because its cheaper and its a tier 1. but a warning: madison is a horrible town. it has the boringness of a hickville but the chaos and pop density of a big metropolis. the campus is sandwiched between two bodies of water so there is little room for expansion (hense the density). some of my friends who went to UW for undergrad said they hated madison. visit the campus first to see if its for you.
