Additional info & updates

I'm a senior at W&L and I graduate in May. I'm originally from New Orleans. It took me four long hard years away from home to realize how much I miss it. Originally, it was down to med school or law school but, with this economy, I figure law school should give me more job security and put me on a faster track to earning money. Unless I get accepted to some top law school in a major city, I am mainly looking to stay in the South. As of now, I am primarily considering either Tulane Law or Loyola Law. Both are great schools in good 'ol uptown NO. Finally, I am hoping to get at least some scholarship money because I can't stand to be in debt after I graduate. Cross your fingers and wish me luck! And, oh yea, out of fairness good luck to everyone else.

Ok, well here it is. As of mid-March, I am unofficially declaring that I going to be a Loyola Law Student. Yaaaay! I am going home!!!! Home sweet home. Since, I've gotten a big $ZERO from Tulane even after badgering them about it endlessly, I decided that they are altogether too pretentious of school (perhaps JadeRaven you were right), so Loyola it is!

I didn't apply to Tulane since I didn't think I was northern/liberal/gimmicky enough to get a full scholarship, and it'd be a shame to give them any of my money (even on the application fee). :D But I'm just a Tulane hater. After talking to a lot of folks, I think I have a good shot at making top 25%, but it will definitely be something to work toward. Good luck to you too! :) Hopefully you come back to NO.

It's cool your intent on law school, but if you are considering med school, and can get in, you will have job security that law school cannot provide. Law jobs in top 250 firms are being lost fast while health care is growing. However, if you're certain you can get a good job through law, it will be a better option and take much less time. Best of luck with whatever you do, but make sure you are aware that the legal economy is bad right now, and health care is making a killing.
