There are all kinds of concerns that may arise after you’ve sent off your law school applications: you might be waiting to hear any response at all from law schools, you might be waitlisted at your top choice school, or you might have the more enviable problem of deciding between different schools where you’ve been accepted. Since a lot of applicants do get at least two acceptances, they have to find a way to choose between them. And that process of choosing the right school might look a little different from undergrad, so here’s some key advice to get you started on choosing between your choices of law school.
No prospective law student likes how expensive law school is. A lot of people take on tons and tons of debt to go to school. Then, when they graduate, the pressure is on those lawyers to chart a career path that lets them have a chance at getting out from under that debt. For graduates of lower-tier schools with lots of debt, it’s often hard to find such a career path.
