Choosing A School (aka, Rank Isn't Everything)

As he begins his first semester at AU, Tony at Parenthetical Statement ponders the question every law student must ask: Did I choose the right school? Tony thinks the answer to that for him is "Yes," but if you're reading this in the future (since by this time most people have made their choices for this year), Transmogriflaw has some great things for you to think about in her post: Law School Decision Time Myths. It's a pithy list of five myths you're going to hear as you decide where to apply and where you'll ultimately enroll, including thoughts on how you should weigh those crucial variables: money and rank. Definitely consider the possibility that money can matter more than rank, no matter what you hear from practicing attorneys. And, as Tony suggests, perhaps what should matter most of all is what feels best for you.

If you have some time, you may also want to read about my own experience choosing a school and how Transmogriflaw's myths operated on that decision.
