I completely agree with you about case. I think case has a good rep and is pretty under rated in the rankings. Also has a great international law program.  Like I said before, I think case and nova have mobility (all things being considered, they're clearly not the 'best' schools), that Pitt doesn't have.

I think that Case is probably not worth the money (if you have to pay sticker), especially if you plan to leave Ohio and the surrounding states. And even then, you're still up against some stiff competition.

I do agree with that...I just think its somewhat more portable than other similarily ranked schools

If you are talking about strength in a market, Pitt is stronger in Pittsburgh than Case in Cleveland or Villanova in Philadelphia.

This conversation has made think about something else that's related.  I understand that one is most likely to get job in the are they went to law school, but after a few years of work can one get a job in another city/region, or are you always tied to that market?  If I sound naive I apologize.

You can always get jobs outside of your school's region, you just shouldn't expect as much/any help from your placement office. And it will certainly help if you went to a school people have heard of.

Also, there's a modify button to clean up spelling errors. ;)

All three schools discussed here are good schools. I say regional, schmegional, though. If you get a score in the low 160s, blanket the schools in the 50s and 60s, and see how much they offer. Choose the school that will cost the least (considering any conditions they place on the scholarship. Temple, rutgers, case, pitt, villanova...they're all fine, if you get them at a discount.

I'm in-state at Temple and paying full, which seems reasonable.
