also should say that I'm not close with the few people I know at HLS...I dated a girl at Virginia and a recent Duke Law grad

Unfortunately, my advice to the close friend now at UNH didn't deter him from attending.

Umm, is almost everyone here a 0L, because it seems like current students and alumni would at least know people from their own schools, but so many keep saying they hardly know any law students.


After getting out of law school, you start to realize that half the people you know are law students or lawyers.


The other half are just 0Ls, whether they realize it or not....

Friend at Yale. Friend at Thomas Goode Jones School of Law (a recently accredited TTTT in Alabama). Fairly broad spectrum. Don't know anyone at an unaccredited school.

Edit: just to confirm, Jones is the "best" school here.

Best: UPenn

Worst: Akron, Duquesne
(I don't think that one being a TTT and the other being a TTTT is enough to distinguish which is worse.)

Ooooh, yeah I couldn't decide before which was the worst law school that someone I know attends/attended, but I change my answer.

Okay, your egregious anti-Barry trolling has gone far enough.

I only know one person in LS, and they go to Cal Western. Rank that as you see fit.

I only know two people in law school, one is a 3L at NYLS and the other is a 3L at Cooley. I just can't figure out which one would be considered "best".
