Choosing a Law School

You've already been through the college selection process and probably think you know what you're up against as you evaluate which law schools best fit your needs and goals. Geography...cost...academic reputation...you're familiar with these criteria in weighing your choices. But, law school selection in some aspects is more important. Your choice can have an outsize impact on your career after school.

As you evaluate your options, you're not only choosing a law school. You'll also need to select from different programs, specializations, and maybe even joint degrees. In addition, other factors like internship opportunities and career services should be factors in your decision-making process.

Finally, add in your personal considerations like school/life balance, schedule flexibility, and potential debt load, and you have a complex stew of factors to consider.
