your right- it's between W&L and Davis. If I were to stay in California I would want to practice in the LA/OC area, the bay, or possibly even move towards Vegas- I don't think I would want to stick around Sacramento. I got into law because Iím very passionate about childrenís rights and educational policy, but I've been able to come to terms with the fact that such a job won't be paying the bills, so now I'm looking at practicing big law for a few years and have educational policy be more of a 'professional hobby'. As for what I practice in big law I'm still undecided between international trade/ development and healthcare. Either way, I know that opportunities for each can be found both in California and DC.
W&L has a very strong presence in DC, and Davis has a strong presence in CA, but not so much in the regions Iím looking at. I have exhausted my checklist- curriculum, clinics, cost of attendance, potential for employment, location- and still there is no solid winner (even my family is split on the choice). Can you think of any other factors that I should weigh into my decision?
