"exotic lawyer themed" dancers. In Chicago even some prostitutes. Has Cooley been mentioned in this thread yet? Do you know what sucks the most about Cooley. Not that it is a bad school, but that it has the same name as a great law firm.

I really feel bad for people who cough up hundreds of thousands in loans to go to those schools.


The problem is only going to be exacerbated by the "second best" law school in the country opening another campus in Florida.

I 'love' the broad statements that folks make and assume that they are true.

Yes, going to a third or fourth tier school in today's economy is a bad idea for most people. Heck even going to a T2 school is a bad idea for most people. However,there are EXCEPTIONS"

First, if you are in or going into a field where a law degree is considered very useful, going to a lower tiered school might be fine as long as you have no ambitions to get a job with the bigger firms. A good example would be a hospital administrator who wants to go to law school part time, which should probably be benefical to their job. A financial planner who goes to school part time, would also benefit from law school training as would a current IRS agent.
Second, if you have a guaranteed job connection, such as working in dad's law or accounting firm, going to any law school would be fine.
Third: If you had parents that have more money than sense, and you REALLY have a realistic plan as to what you want to do with your law school training, going to a lower tiered law school might made sense.
Fourth, if you get a completely free ride that doesn't require high levels of attainment in order to keep the scholarship, going to a lower tiered school might be fine.
Fifth: If the lower tiered school is the best in the state and you want to practice in that state, going there might not be that bad.

In almost any other circumstances, I wouldn't recommend going to a law school in today's economy that is T2-T4 ranked. Heck, I wouldn't even recommend T1 schools unless they are ranked in the top 20. Even with this, I don't think I would recommend taking on a lot of debt.

A legal defense and a sexual release all in one package. But seriously, I do feel bad for the law firm and for the people who get suckered into attending.

Dude, everyone here knows you are making a legitimate point. It's just that we have heard it so many times, there's really nothing to say about it. The ABA simply refuses to do shit while the TTT/TTTT schools are making bank.
