LAC or IVY..?
« on: February 09, 2004, 08:42:17 AM »
My sister is getting into college next year.
She is also considering law schools.
Top 3 LACs and Ivy League.
Which do you think is better when applying to law school?
I know that it is hard to compare these two directly.
Any thoughts or experiences?

My feeling is that it makes absolutely no difference.  Clearly she has good choices and as long as she excels and does well on the LSAT she'll be fine for Law School admissions.

I went to a top 5 LAC.  I loved the smaller atmosphere, professors who were teaching and not doing research, and the eclectic student body.

Other people swear by the Ivies - name recognition, lots of well known profs.

She should visit the campuses and do an overnight visit in the residence halls to get a feel for the campus and she what makes her the most comfortable.
