Take the LSAT and then come back. These predictor threads are less than useless without them.


+1


Except this isn't a predictor thread. Fail.

So, therefore, the difference between Harvard/Michigan and even lower T14 is only visible in a few real ways, but those ways are often ridiculous. :wink:


Huh, interesting. Michigan seems to be imitating Harvard all over the place. :wink:


looks like Boalt is in on it as well :)

It obviously depends on what you want. If you want wallstreet law, then definitely Harvard. If you're a PI person, and you want a good experience in law school then Michigan. Georgetown is significantly lower in opinion than Michigan and Harvard. Additionally their campus actually isn't connected to the undergrad campus, and a lot of people commute.


That person said it all, but before making your top choice school definitive, please look at all your options, inspirations and funds, it's easy to get your choice done but it's hard to switch after, think twice.

No shit! Ann Arbor vs Cambridge. Harvard may be a better school but (relatively speaking) the town sucks.

Yea, after reading this thread I'm with ya :roll:

Sure, why not?

This is an on-topic forum, and folks were having a generally nice discussion about differences between law schools. Trolling a mod here is bold, but not smart.

The extent to which you have no idea what you're talking about is truly astounding.


wow your evidence is so persuasive
my opinion has definitely been changed.

I think it's hard to contend against the fact that, in general, people enjoy their 'in law school' experience better at Michigan than Harvard...
Job prospects will be better at Harvard, but the difference is negligible if you want to work in the Midwest.
Georgetown has good D.C. placement, but Harvard owns it in NY (not that Georgetown still doesn't have good placement). Mich and GT rep in NYC is probably relatively similar (except in law firms, which will know that Mich is a bit more prestigious)


I think all that is fair.

you have no idea how competitive prestigious PI like ACLU is. even from harvard it is FAR from guaranteed.

LOL! ACLU and prestige in the same sentence...that was a good one.

Maybe if you stop signing off on everything with an "MW" you'll be harder to track down.
