UNC is good law school with pretty good placement in the DC region. Iím not sure about its placement in NY.

As for the school itself, I know that they have some funding issues and have lost a huge amount of talented faculty during the last three years. Posters generally describe the student body as collegial and relaxed. I also know that the law school has a high percentage of in-state students.

Would you be in-state at UNC?

Hey. I am out of state for UNC...
hmmm so are you saying UNC is kind of going down every year?
what do you think of Wake Forest then? (if you do that is)

Email any questions you have about W&M.  I don't like to compare schools for a couple reasons including I don't go to UNC so don't know much about it and its stupid to attack another school.

I don't think that UNC will be going down every year, but it has certainly been in a rut lately.

I don't know that much about Wake. I do know they have a very small class size and have a good faculty. I imagine their employment prospects are similar to UNC.

Wake dropped last year too.  There's mo reason to pick Wake over UNC.  UNC is more prestigious and cheaper (and in a better area).  Even if you're out-of-state you can probably get in-state tuition your second and third years.

Between UNC and William and Mary it's pretty much a toss-up.  Visit both schools and pick the one you like better.
