They're pretty consistently ranked top 5-7....yet people with credentials to get in are fawning over places like "MVP" (Michigan, Virginia, Penn, I presume..?) and not even applying to Boalt.

What's the deal?

1) This is TLS
2) There's a "T" in the school's name.
3) The economy sucks, and Boalt is in a small, yet hotly contested market, making its relative placement power weaker than MVPDN.
4) This is TLS.

OP, as Berkeley has not had any recent graduates featured in the NY Times because they were making a mere $30/hr ($60,000/yr) as a legal temp, Berkeley is hereby superior to Columbia.

The "Columbia grad" in the NYT article didn't get his JD at Columbia, he got his JD at the University of Florida.
