Thanks for the advice. I think your knock on the first replier to my post got insulted that you implied he knew nothing becasue he wasn't in law school yet. Note the lack of his post.
Anyway, I DID do much research. CSU owns Cleveland. Biglaw, too. Provided, of course, you are top 10%. But they don't own much else. There are only about 20 lawyers on Martindale who were admitted within the past 5 years who work outside of Ohio. Most of them had top grades but perhaps they knew someone.
That's my only hang up. I don't like the feeling of being tied down to one area but I don't fear not being able to get a job.
I am also unsure whether heading to a top law school would cause more stress. Even though the curve will be higher, it may be more difficult because everyone is smarter. I don't want to work harder. Plus, knowing how much debt I would be in would cause a slight panic. I would pretty much HAVE to do biglaw. I don't know how some people mosey through law school at the not so top of their class at a private tier 2-4, paying full tuition without a care in the world about their future job prospects.
