In debating where you should go to law school, there are many factors to be weighed and contemplated. There are considerations even beyond the boring-old things everyone talks about, like ranking, prestige, location, financing, and cetera. Some law schools give you a good shot at passing the bar exam, while others do not. Some law schools have the status and connections to help you land that remunerative job that will bring in enough lucre to repay the cost of school before your temples grey and your body ripens into a soft middle age, while others will not. Some laws schools remain open and ABA-accredited throughout your three years spent there, while others, sadly, do not.
