I'm in this mess as well, except only between USC and ND
I'd like to work in DC eventually, but wouldn't mind being in LA for a bit before that. I'd MUCH rather live in LA than in South Bend for the 3 years of law school and I have scholarships at both that are making the cost close to equal (though USC will be about 5 more a year, with total fin aid taken into consideration).
Does anyone know if USC ranks its classes? And if so... does ranking determine on-campus interviewing and law review opportunities?
also, any opinions on this situation would be great-- and yes, I did get into GW with $$ and withdraw, I really want a small school with a theory focus and GW is neither of those things.
