Rando has some crazy feeling that he must defend his DECENT law school though it has been hit VERY hard ITE, more then T14. Just because you go to a school doesnt mean it is a great school, and no Emory is not considered "higher/better" then UGA. My father is a lawyer in CA (not biglaw) who worked biglaw in TX for several years. He is literally laughing that someone thinks 5-6 spots in the ranking that far down the rankings makes a difference. It doesnt. Top 10% at UGA beats top 15% at emory. End of story.
Please quite trying to place Emory so high up. If you did well GREAT! but most there will not land BigLaw.
Holy shit. read my posts people.
btw, kind of weird that you are bonding over TLS with your dad. To each his/her own.
To the top 10% at UGA beats top 15% at Emory. That simply has not been my experience. I don't know of a single person in the top 10% unemployed (not saying a lot, I know) but know of at least two in the top 5% at UGA who struck out. Probably an aberration, whatever. Not great evidence. And yes it is anecdotal. But it is true and makes a logical connection similar to what I have seen from working in the Atlanta legal market for the past few years. That is my statement. There is no vehemence, there is no ad hominem school defense. I apologize if it came off that way.
