So I don't really see much about NU Law posted on this board, and I'm pretty much set on going there next year (waitlisted at Boalt and UCLA, there went my dream of staying in California). Does anyone have an opinion on NU? Is the sticker price really worth it? Do you think it's ever going to stay in the top ten in the rankings? How come there are so few posts about it?I really liked it when I visited, and liked the people a lot as well. I have to admit I never thought of it while applying - only sent in an app because of the fee waiver! But I'm pretty excited about going. Anyone have any input though??
what are the chances of working in NY after attending NU or UChicago?is it better to go to fordham instead of these two schools if one wants to work in NY?
I would definitely say go to Northwestern...Fordman folks? RU kidding? Northwestern has an excellent nationwide reputation and is an excellent school. It has been and will continue to be in the top 20. If you want to work in NY, I would still say go to Northwestern. Your degree will mean more and distinguish you from other applicants. The quality of your legal education will be higher.
If I was less certain, I'd go for the more prestigious school. But it sounds like you're already pretty sure what you're going to do...
