SoCalLawGuy:
Like EchPsu said, visit them and then decide. See what each of them have to offer and then make a list of pros and cons. It sounds clichè but a list of pros and cons will help a lot in your decision making.

--- Quote from: Garrett on April 09, 2004, 01:00:55 AM ---Thoughts about the schools?  Which do you think is better?  Is there a handsdown better school or are they comparable?

--- End quote ---

There doesn't appear to be a hands-down winner in the same way as might be true between Yale and [pick your favorite], but there is a question that might apply to anyone with the same dilemma:

What do you want to be when you grow up? 

Seriously.  Where do you wish to live?  What lifestyle would you want to pursue?  And so on.  These might seem throwaway questions, but in fact they're central.  If, for example, you prefer the middle of the country, Ohio is probably the better choice.  If you cannot see yourself away from the East Coast, it would almost certainly be a mistake to attend a non-national law school away from Boston or Baltimore.  Clearly, the rank of the law school is not unimportant, but neither should it be determinative.  Also, wherever you do decide to go, attend law school with a purpose . . . and do not do what others are doing just because.   There's a good book on good habits, Law School Fast Track, that should be helpful wherever you do decide to attend.

Good luck,

Thane.
