I go to Cooper Union. Our grads routinely make ~75k starting from UG and many have made their way out to Silicon Valley for 100k+ jobs working 40 hours a week. You're all mad now.

1. Case Western Reserve
2. Villanova
3. Richmond
4. Michigan State
5. Tulane


I am interested in others thoughts on this list.

For me the most surprising is Case Western due to their UG rep and WashU being ranked so highly.

None of these are good schools notwithstanding their law schools.

A good rule of thumb is if you have to tell people "It's a good school!" then it isn't a good school.

I went to a public regional university that is really good. Outside of its region no one has heard of it, but within the region it is widely regarded as the #2 school behind the regionally dominant research university.

I hope you're not trying to suggest Pitt was/is/could be a good school.

:lol: Well played.

But my point is just that there are a lot of schools that are "good" that are virtually unknown. If by "good" you mean nationally prominent, prestigious, and tons of well-known profs, then I guess SBL is right. But I think when talking about UGs, a good school means a lot different things than that. I loved my undergrad and it has well-prepared me for law school and life beyond LS, but no one has heard of it and it ain't anywhere to be seen on the USNWR rankings. I'd call it good without hesitation.

But SBL is right... I hate those people who go to regional LACs and act like they are elite schools. So while I disagree with his conclusion, I applaud his approach.

Yeah, ironically in my opinion the BEST schools are public schools. I challenge anyone to find a better value than places like Berkeley, UCLA, Michigan, UNC, Texas, etc. I just put on airs of faux snobbery because I don't like LAC kids who have an axe to grind because nobody has heard of their school.

I'm talking about my undergrad, which was not Pitt. I have no knowledge of Pitt's undergrad programs, aside from my anecdotal evidence that Pitt undergrads are idiots. Of course, that could be said of most places.

Among anyone interested in scientific research, Pitt has a GREAT rep

Kinda the theme of this entire thread...certain schools are great at certain things, and not so much other things...and at private schools, you get your hand held, while at public ones, you are a faceless number---and in neither does it matter how good the school is, because the REAL quality of a school is in graduate school (minus engineering)
