So, pretty much I've narrowed down my choice to U of Illinois and Santa Clara University (also slightly considering U of San Diego). U of Illinois is a significantly better school and in the latest rankings, Santa Clara moved from 93 to tier 3. Appears to be a no brainer. But, I'm from California and would like to work in California eventually, and apparently Santa Clara has a good reputation in that state (especially the bay area)? I'm not sure what kind of law i want to do, but maybe family law or disabilities law...should that affect my decision? If only i got into UC Davis (still havent heard back from them), my decision would be much easier. Thanks!
