They are very different schools, and many people get accepted to both.  It really depends on the experience you want in law school.  Career wise you will not have vastly dissimiliar prospects.

yeah as such i wanted to know which one ppl would choose and for what reasons

do you think they have similar career prospects? bc does have a significantly higher median salary, which would be the only factor that would make me swoon that way. i've made my choice with W&L long ago and am pretty happy with it, but just wanted to see where other folks were.

W&L Pros:

Small and intimate (good for education)
24/7 library access
Relatively cheaper
The school is rich
Solid ranking
Secular

BC if you want to work in the Northeast and W & L if you want DC or the South.
