Texas, perhaps. Mercer does place better in FL, though, in my opinion.
U of Penn is T14. Penn State is #77.
USNews currently ranks Mercer at 100 and Penn State at around 77. Without considering location and where you plan to practice...which do you think is the better law school? I know PSU ranks much higher, but I've read a lot of negative posts about that program in contrast to the positive posts about Mercer. Since I am an out-of-state student who doesn't plan to practice in either state, location has no bearing and tuition will run about the same.
