How to Choose the Right Law School

When it comes to choosing the right law school, there are many factors to consider that you may not have to consider if attending med school or dental school. The legal industry, as we all know, is not what it use to be. An industry that was once a golden ticket to the good life has now become saturated with attorneys, legal secretaries and worst of all, computers that do document review and other basic first-year associate tasks for us. There are two ways to look at this dilemma. One way would be to not enter the legal field at all. Plenty of money still to be made by going to business school. But if you're anything like me, becoming a lawyer has much less to do with making great amounts of wealth in a short amount of time and much more to do with catering your skill set and abilities to a life-long career that you can wake up to every morning happy...or at least a little bit happy. So with all that being said, here are 5 of the most important factors to consider before choosing a law school to attend...or choosing to attend law school at all. 1) Region - Where do you want to practice? Unlike med school, the location you decide to attend law school is very much a career based decision. A lot of students don't know this and are very surprised when their On-Campus-Interviewing only has law firms from around the area and they are forced to send out mass mailers to the regions they do want to practice in. This is not only tiresome but it is very hard to get an interview by sending a mass mailer to a law firm in New York when you are in Omaha, Nebraksa. Consider the next 10 years of your life when choosing a law school. Ask yourself, "Is this an area I can see myself living in for the foreseeable future?". Also consider cost of living and the legal market of each region you are considering. Markets like New York are highly saturated, pay high salaries starting at $160,000 but the cost of living equates that to around $75,000 in Dallas. There are a few firms in Dallas starting first year associates off at $180,000 with no state income tax. That is around $450,000 in Manhattan. Of course, if you are partial to living in a region regardless of COL perhaps the cost of living in New York or California is not a concern. 2) US News Law School Rankings - There are 202 ABA-approved law schools now. Which one should you attend? Many of my colleagues say "Go to the highest ranked school you get into regardless of tuition/scholarships". I disagree but they are not that far off. Do not take these rankings lightly. Law school is not like undergrad where you can attend a school in rural New Hampshire and then move to San Diego and get a job fairly easy. Law firms put huge amounts of weight on which school you went to, and then secondly what your class rank was at that school. The US News rankings list the top 100 in order using a variety of factors including employment data, average starting salary, and LSAT scores. It is traditionally known that the top 14 or T14 are known as NATIONAL LAW SCHOOLS, meaning that they hold a high amount of weight in all the regions. The next 10 or so schools are also fairly strong in terms of national presence. These are your Notre Dame's and UCLA's; however there are some stronger REGIONAL LAW SCHOOLS that will beat these schools out in certain regions (take SMU or Florida for instance). 3) OCI - On-Campus-Interviewing is a fairly over-looked tool by many 0L's when looking for their fit. If you do not know what OCI is, it is the tool that many law firms use to attract young talent to their firms. After 1L, bids are made by students for interviews with the firms that decide to attend. At lower ranked schools, this is a very competitive process as not as many firms attend these schools. Keep in mind, this is the way many law students not only get summer associate positions for their second summer but also how they wrap up employment before they graduate. Sites like top-law-schools.com and NALP.org are great sites for looking up legal employers and finding out which OCI's they attend. Also in the back of your mind keep tabs on the OCI:school population ratio as a school with only 50 interviewers is could possibly be more attractive than one with 70 if they have half the student body. 4) Starting salary-to-Debt ratio - There is nothing more burdensome when trying to get married and have a family than $200,000 in government loans at 6.8% and 7.9% annually. And unless you make paying off that debt the highest priority, meaning putting $4,000-$5,000 a month onto the loan, then it will stay with you for a long, long time. Most future law students know what the average starting salary is for the schools they are considering. If you do not I highly suggest you look at the US News rankings. But a lot of them do not take in to consideration the salary-to-debt ratio. This is a fatal mistake because that $140,000 starting salary can quickly be whittled down by those $2,200/month minimum payments for 10 years. Many students get caught up in starting salary data because it is one of the only tangible things that can be measured coming directly out of law school, however that starting salary is exactly that. A start. Many smaller firms that start associates out at $60,000 or so offer fast track career development, getting you in the court room early and teaching you the ropes so in 10 years that salary means nothing and on top of that, you had no debt in the process. 5) Campus - This is where you will be spending the next three years of your life, unless you transfer, so why wouldn't you want it to be the most enjoyable three years you can make it. Take tours and attend admitted student days at each school you are considering. These can provide valuable on two fronts. One being that you get to see the facilities. The second being that you can speak with professors and deans and students about life at the school. It's fairly easy to see what are the school's priorities when you listen to a few students speak about their time there. Does the school have exciting things to do? Is there a football team? These things seem overrated now but on Saturday morning when you are all studied out I guarantee that they will not be. In all, there are many factors to consider when choosing the right law school but if you do not consider the above factors, you are not doing yourself justice.
