Illinois v Iowa - Full tuition at both

Illinois v Iowa - Full tuition at both
« on: February 10, 2009, 07:29:02 AM »
Hi All -

So I am lucky to be in the position of having full tuition at both schools. 

For a background, I don't want big law.  My interests are in public interest or government work.  If I were to work in a firm, I would want to work in a relatively small one.

Also, I do not want to work in Chicago. My SO has no shot at working there. I hope to work in either Iowa or Minnesota.

Is it a no brainer to choose Iowa then?  I just I'm just interested on feedback, especially from those who are attending/have attended those schools.

Where do you want to work in Iowa?  Iowa City and Cedar Rapids have an extremely limited legal market, although I heard that Nyemaster recently opened a Cedar Rapids office.  And Des Moines, according to reliable sources, is overpopulated by lawyers.  What type of law do you want to practice?  Family law in Dubuque?  Personal Injury work in Sioux City?  You must be more specific than government work; that could be anything from prosecution to legislation drafting.
