ATL comments are almost as snarky and funny as you folks.


Love these guys.

Me, too. Before I had TLS, ATL was one of the few ways I was able to mold my perspectives on various schools.

True. ATL also gets self-righteous on occasion, which can be off-putting.

Yeah but half the articles on ATL by a certain author are race baiting incoherent nonsense anyways.

WTF were you thinking? Biglaw firms only hire from t14. you're totally fucked. Vanderbiltttt is a joke, especially when it comes to nlj250 placement data and OCI.


Should I transfer or drop out and reapply? HALP

I get why the part-time can bring the rankings down, I just can't fathom the elitism one needs to call a part-time program a bad thing. Say what you want about the number of students at Georgetown, but so what if some people working on the Hill and whatnot want to get a law degree without leaving their jobs? Would if I could.

Haters gonna hate...

An epic battle between GeorgeTTTown and TTTexas.

I predict Texas will fall back out of the t14 within the next year or two, but 150 years from now you'll still see UT grads driving around the South with "t14" decals and license plate holders on their hovertrucks.

No dude, you're fine. Vandy is a school on the rise, I think if they continue to invest in their international civil rights endangered bird law program, they could break the T14.

Lol, true. But I mean, any time a racial issue comes up in the legal community, you can expect a whiny rant at ATL.

PT is easier to get into thus you lose much of your elitism when you are taking people with lower numbers.

Phew I was really about to /self there for a second, thanks for talking me off the ledge. I mean, rising one spot in the rankings should guarantee at least a FEW more employers at OCI. Maybe even rope in a few more V30s. I mean we're only getting V40s now.
