Please Help me. USC Gould vs. Washington University in Saint Louis


Peacemaker
Hello.
I need help, everybody must leave an answer PLEASE.

I granted a scholarship for both LL M and S.J.D programs from my sponsor. I got accepted in LL M program in two universities: USC Gould & Washington U Law School in saint Louis Mo. Which one should I choose? here's some points.

1- USC does not offer S.J.D program while WashU does. Does choosing WashU for LL M gives me a good chance for its S.J.D ?

2- USC Gould ranks 20 while WashU ranks 18...

3- Los Angels vs. Saint Louis? honestly, I've never been to either cities.However, I guess LA is much better... the weather for example?

4- I have got 3 days to decide. Please help.

P.S; Forgive my mistakes( in case there are any) cuz I am writing from My iPhone.

Regards,

I know this is a bit late but here are my thoughts anyway. Do you really want the S. JD? Then pursue that school. Not a huge difference in the rankings. Weather is much better in California but not terrible in St. Louis. Cost of living is MUCH lower in St. Louis than Los Angeles.

Lastly I don't know how good the networking would be at WU. Gould is at least integrated into the California market. In St. Louis you might have a shot at law firms in Chicago (and St. Louis of course) and not much else. I don't think there is going to be much national reach to this school.
