Thank God you didn't out your friends by posting their actual law schools on your anonymous internet account.


What is your problem? Those are their actual law schools. Some people are actually attending those, and some people just graduated. Sorry I gave more than one answer to "best" and "worst".

I misinterpreted. I thought you meant that you knew one person at Harvard, Yale, or Columbia, and one other person at SF, Brooklyn, or St. John's. I couldn't imagine why you were so reluctant to be more specific.


Yeah, sorry, I wrote that and then felt really bad. I guess I was cranky last night :( also, should have been clearer, possibly with multiple commas.

Best: Yale
Worst: Berkeley

Not that Berkeley is bad! I guess I just don't know that many people in LS.

Best: GMU

Worst: UBalt

My undergrad is pretty craptastic so I'm not surprised that more people that got into higher ranked schools haven't outed -- I know I don't.

There are online law schools? Surely they're not accredited?

Best: Columbia (recently graduated, working big law in SF)
Worst: St. Thomas, in Minneapolis (also recently graduated, working at a temp agency)

Like others, I'm realising I know very few law students IRL (and none that are currently in school).

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.
