I'm in this group too, but it's coming down to USC and ND for me though I think (I didn't ap to Vandy). I like a lot of what USC has to offer... but I'd like to work in DC. Logically, I should probably go to GW, but I really don't like their very practice-focused approach to law (I'm definitely looking for an interdisciplinary and theoretical focus) so I'm pretty sure that's out. Can I go to USC and still work over on the other coast? I'm really done with conservative mid-western colleges after spending undergrad at one... and I'm also sick of freezing to death ... but I'll go to ND if it's the best option.
