c&p, you have provided me with incomplete information!!! You have not visited some of these schools (if any)! How can you hope to give me accurate answers without this crucial information!!! Hearsay will not do!

Okay so maybe I haven't officially visited UVA or GW, but I've driven by them many times. I think that is easily comparable to an ASW. Who needs first hand experience anyway? Facts are overrated.

This whole you telling me where to go to law school thing is a lot more work on my part than it should be.

Be that as it may, given what I have, I'm sticking with UVA.

You're missing a key component... the first one that comes to mind.

With the recent flurry of X v. Y threads, I decided to create a one-stop shop of sorts. Here's what I need from you.

First, list the schools you're considering attending, then answer the following questions subjectively (or objectively [ties are acceptable, but please list all schools]):

1. The school with the best location (factor in local activities, proximity to SO's, etc.)
2. The school that will overall cost you the least (cost of living included)
3. The highest ranked school (according to whichever source matters to you; personal rankings count)
4. The school that you think will give you the best job prospects (go with overall flexibility as opposed to what you think you might want to do, since that could easily change; factor in location as well)
5. The school that best seems to fit your personality

Next, rank each of the 5 criteria it terms of how important they are to you on a scale of 1-5, 1 being least important and 5 being most important. For example, if you don't care about cost, rank it 1. No ties.

Finally, write down (or type, I guess) the first school from your list that comes to mind.

Columbia, NYU, Michigan, UVA, GULC
1. Columbia 4
2. Michigan 5
3. Columbia 1
4. Columbia 2
5. Columbia (i think) 3

Columbia

This should be a no brainer, but as you see, cost is a huge factor for me.

Moni, I'm curious, is CLS giving you more money than Harvard (haven't checked your LSN lately)? And since you don't know where Mr. Moni, DDS will be yet, is NYC a better location than Boston just because you think it's the best fit?

Just wondering. I know you're having a tough time with your choices!

Haven't gotten any money from CLS or Harvard.  I just submitted my Need Access today, but decided not to submit anything to Harvard because I know that they're not gonna give me much and they have tons of their own forms to fill out as well.  If it was just me to consider, I might have still done it, but my parents weren't keen on filling out any forms, so I don't wanna push my luck.

And yes, barring all reference to the bf I feel like NYC is a best fit.  I want a big city environment because I don't see myself settling in a large city like NYC.  I like C's location as well.  And even if the bf doesn't end up in NYC, I can get cheap(ish) flights all over the country from there.  I've never been to Boston, so I guess its not a fair comparison.
The noobs are so into themsleves you'd think they allready have offers at Tool, Tool, feminine hygiene product & Dumbass LLC

Hmm... this is a tough call; pretty much 50/50, so you can't really go wrong either way and would be happier at either. You like Hastings' location better, but I'll go with USC on this one.

Thanks, Johnny...most people say USC. I just hope I can find jobs in the Bay Area if I go to USC...I don't want to stay in LA
