Southwestern Law vs. NYLS (also Pace)
« on: April 07, 2004, 03:28:31 PM »
So far I have gotten into to Southwestern Law, NYLS and Pace.  I am living in NYC, but I would like to work in LA one day.  Since it seems difficult to use an NYLS or Pace degree to get a job in LA do you think that Southwestern is where I should go?  What is Southwestern's reputation?

Just curious... what were your numbers?

If you want to work in LA, it makes sense to go to school in LA.  As for reputation, look at the rankings... they may not be honoerd by everyone, but the reality of the situation is that hiring decisions are made because of where you went to school.
