I wouldn't have assumed Duke was a top school. I didn't know Penn was ivy, I kinda assumed it was one of those tiny liberal arts schools that people pretend are preftsigious.
I was vaguely aware of Columbia but I didn't know where it was located.
It's crazy how little prestige UChi gets inside Chicago. Less than Loyola and Depaul to lay people.
I'm all for trolling your school, dude...but UVA has considerably higher lay prestige than NU. It's not even close.
I'm from Chicago so I have a midwestern's view of prestige. There are about zero UVA grads in this are. I'd imagine UVA is the East's Michigan. In the midwest we all think Michigan is amazing.
But if you poll midwesterners, I'm guessing they've never heard of UVA either.
Lay prestige is all regional.
I'm FROM MIchigan, went to MIchigan State, and I never heard anyone talk about MIchigan's law school as being amazing.
Yea i think you are right. However the lawyers i talked to in Michigan think Umich is up there with harvard and yale....
