Drake or Stetson?

I got accepted to both. I know both are rather prestigious in their respective geographic locations, but I am conflicted. What is your opinion?

I would probably say go to both see which one you like better.

Besides that I can only think of a few things to keep in mind:

Living expenses are probably more in Florida than Iowa

Drake has a much better student:faculty ratio not that; that necessarily means anything.

Think about where you want to live it seems like both these schools are going to tie you to the region.

Has either one given you a scholarship?

Prestige...

Anyway, Stetson for the weather, but yeah, visit both.

I plan on trying to visit both schools...not sure if I will be able to swing it though. Looking at the employment prospects, Drake has more people employed in "Business and Industry" (17% vs 12%) than Stetson does which leads me to believe that graduates are unable to get meaningful employment.Any other thoughts? Oh, and Drake offered me a scholarship of $5,000 a year as long as I stay in the top 1/3. Stetson didn't offer me any money.

It could mean that it could also mean that Drake has more students going into non-traditional legal fields (I.E intellectual property)
