I don't know how much useful information I'll get here, but I'll post this question anyway. I know a number of people on this board are lawyers, but don't admit to it publicly for a number of good reasons. Anyway, I've applied to, and been accepted to, several law schools. Right now, I'm pretty much deciding between UGA and GSU. From what I can tell, my choices seem to be this: UGA: Pros: -MUCH better ranking -MUCH better name recognition outside of GA -Cheap -Good Education -Has a very powerful "Good Ole Boy" network for alums to tap into -In Athens (can see the stars, cleaner air) -In Athens (cheap cost of living) Cons: -In Athens (isolated) -In Athens (college, party town...I love parties but like other stuff too) -UGA Football (edit: added because of football rivalry in thread) GSU: Pros: -Excellent career services office (possibly better than UGA) -2nd cheapest in country (would be cheaper than my undergrad) -Good Education (arguably as good as UGA) -Excellent Externship program -Located in Atlanta (easy access to the capital, numerous firms, etc) -Located in Atlanta (lots of variety of things to do....love this city) -Georgia Tech football(edit: added because of football rivalry in thread) Cons: -Little name recognition outside of GA -MUCH lower ranking than UGA -Lacks the "Good Ole Boy" network that UGA grads get Do any of the lawyers currently on this board have any insightful comments about either of these schools? For example, how much of a con are the cons that I listed? Are they weighted properly, do you think? Or are some of things I listed "non-issues"? Is there anything that I should know that most prospective students aren't normally aware of but should be? Thanks for any input you guys might have. And PM or email is fine instead of publicly posting a reply. I'd understand why and don't mind.
