Right. Then why don't firms just go back to high school and pick the 5 coolest kids to be associates? Maybe because they want the smartest kids. The kids at the 40th ranked law school are not that.
I'm sorry...I think me having an almost perfect undergraduate career and doing 90th percentile on a test that everyone studies for for about 3 months qualifies me as being smart even if I go to a school ranked 40. Not saying I am, but I really think that just because your stats may be 175/3.3 doesn't mean you're a genius. It means you got lucky on ONE test that matters a lot to schools and did below average at 4 years of school. Someone with almost a 4.0 after 4 years while working the entire time is most likely smarter. It's unfair but that's the way the world works.
Why do people think that if you got a 170+ with a below average UGPA you're going to be at the top of your class at a really good school? One test doesn't mean anything in regards to how well you're going to do in life
