I have applied to both schools and received an offer from both. Gonzaga has offered me assistance and Albany has not released my aid yet. I want to complete a judicial clerkship upon graduating... which program is more suitable for that goal? which program will allow me to pursue that side of law?
Would you rather live in Albany or Spokane, both during school and afterwards?
I don't think the difference in clerkship prospects are different enough to justify choosing one school over the other. Visit both, and determine which school you would be happier at over three years, and which region you would prefer to live/work in after graduation.
