Based on job prospects/salary($$), which school am I better off with?  Job preference will be warm weather over cold weather.

Please discuss.

there has been a starting salary battle waged in Atlanta within the last six months or so

i'm sure you can find articles about it, but the story to which I specifically refer was written for a daily atlanta legal newsbrief called The Daily Report

sorry to tease without a link, but it shouldn't be hard to find something in a search engine ... it was reasonably big news in the atlanta legal community

I would pick Emory because it is in Atlanta, with tons of intership, externship, and networking opportunities.  W&L might be an amazing school, but it is in the middle of nowhere.
