If Richmond is giving you money, go to Richmond. Richmond has an Excellent reputation within the city and a generally good reputation within the surrounding states. If you do a search and look at McGuire Woods and Hunton and Williams (two V100 Firms) you will see that they are full of UR grads. And there are several smaller market paying firms within the area. Also, many judges within the RVA area are UR grads. As far as quality of life, UR is in a MUCH better location than Penn State Law. I don't know a ton about Penn State Law, but I know that Richmond is a tier 2 that owns the Richmond market. Basically, if you want VA, go to Richmond.
kilroy, what kinds of jobs are most of your fellow grads getting? I applied to PSU Dickinson but I'm worried about being stuck in Harrisburg or Reading forever. I'm on their waitlist, so we'll see what happens, but I have this theory that in a tiebreaker, choose the school with the more prestigious undergrad, because that will help guide the rep of the law school in the future. If I get into PSU it will probably ocme down to them or Rutgers-Camden.
