First I want to wish you all the very best, whatever you decide.
If I were facing that decidion, I would want my JD to come from a prestigeous law school that commands the respect of those in the legal profession. Mississippi College School of Law, in Jackson, is such an institution.
There is no law that requires you to live where you graduate, although the areas around Jackson, such as Pearl, Brandon, Clinton and especially Madison are wonderful places to live.
If I were where you are I would consider a degree from MC Law and a future home in south Alabama, where lawyers bring home enough money to burn a wet hippo.

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic? Ole Miss Law is leaps and bounds better than MS College and half the cost. The only reason someone goes to MS College over Ole Miss is if they are offered a full ride.

For being such a small town, there are a million lawyers here. Actually, if you look it up on Martindale or Lawyers.com I think there is something like 200+ lawyers in Oxford which is ridiculous. So I wouldn't want to even try to get a job here unless you already have lots of connections. The jobs here go to the locals, especially hiring in the legal sector.

The people I know in law school here are completely traditional applicants. The average age is probably 23-25. I did my undergrad here, still live here, and am also applying for law school next year, but it won't be here. Good luck!

EDIT: I just looked and it looks like this is an old thread from last year...I'm going to leave it up just in case it is somehow helpful to someone else.

Whatever. I don't believe it to be worth an arguement.
I wish you all the best.

I couldn't find a reference for your statement. Can you post a link? I am considering moving there myself, though, like the user above, I am concerned that there isn't enough entertainment in the town.
