Where would you have gone?
« on: May 06, 2005, 10:39:42 AM »
If rankings meant little (i.e. Harvard is prestigious but getting a law degree with good grades at any school meant you could pretty much have a shot at any job or clerkships in the country), and location was irrelevant (i.e. you could get a job anywhere in the country after law school), where would you have gone to law school?  Would you have decided differently than how you picked your undergrad?  And to people who are in their dream school, is there another school you would have looked at?

(Also assume you're a 4.0, 180 so you can go anywhere)

USD or Pepperdine, beautiful weather and the beach. What more could you ask for?

Southern Methodist in Dallas. Then, probably Pepperdine.
SMU Fall '05

Good question, but before I answer I have to quell all this USD picking.

USD is in Mission Valley - it is nowhere near the beach.  Now don't get me wrong - it is still in SD which has fantastic weather & beauty, but if you are simply picking for weather & beauty - pick Pepperdine.  It has all that and views of the beach/ocean.

I'd go to Yale because I'd get the best education.  I understand prestige is out, but they still have arguably the best professors.

I'd kill myself in New Haven after a few months.  Ugly little city, crime-ridden, dirty, and crappy weather (though good pizza).

Hawaii sounds nice.  Pepperdine's location is nice, but it probably wouldn't be as cool overall.

I like how when everything else is boiled away, everyone just wants to be on the beach.

No one would have stayed (or gone back to) their undergrad?
