In any event, the fact that Law School Transparency cites most of their information form US News is a ridiculous perversion of their original goal. If they wanted schools to provide more accurate information, they shouldn't be willing to present the faulty information on a website that explicitly says its goal is to correct misconceptions about legal placement. They're furthering the problem they wish to correct.

This is wrong 54% of the total class is reporting private sector salaries which is much better than the rest of the previously stated schools. see below


139 of Tulane's 257 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 54% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

135 of UF's 425 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 30.6% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

74 of FSU's 263 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 28.1% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

72 of UNC's 227 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 31.7% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

90 of George Mason's 230 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 39.1% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

68 of UGA's 216 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 31.5% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

97 of Georgia State's 185 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 52.4% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

133 of Emory's 217 graduates are reporting private sector salaries which is 61.3% of the total class are reporting private sector salaries.

Not surprisingly Emory looks better than Tulane and Georgia State, but all three look much better than UGA.

1) I'm a he.

2) I can handle the truth just fine; the points you're making just happen to be essentially meaningless, especially on the regional school level. If you want to work in Washington state, you're much better with a public UWash education than a private WUSTL degree (not to mention local privates such as Seattle and Gonzaga). I'm not claiming public schools are inherently better. I'm saying, all things considered, it's a wash, and should factor very little into your application process (if at all). Even though Emory does have better placement than UGA (which I don't think most people would deny), paying sticker at Emory over in-state tuition + scholly at UGA is just foolish, given the relatively small difference in employment placement.

I can handle the truth just fine. What I can't handle is your incessant trolling and/or inferiority complex that has convinced you private schools have an inherent advantage (and this is coming from someone who will be attending a private LS in the fall).

I completely agree. I just can't wrap my mind around why some people would believe they have some sort of an advantage in the job market by attending a private school over a public school.

Did you even read what I posted? For every cherry-picked region where private schools have the advantage, I can cherry-pick a region where the opposite is true.

Ok for one I really don't care anymore and I don't even know why I made this thread... Until I take my LSAT I don't know if I will be applying to T2 or hys or retake as you said so sorry for being a crazy bitch and I understand what you're saying. I get it advantage is where advantage is and their is no reason to make crazy broad claims like mine.
