Viability of lower tier schools for experienced students?

Postby NorthEastShaolin » Fri Aug 12, 2011 10:55 pm

Hey guys,

I'm just curious if anyone could weigh in on how much work experience will offset graduating from a low tier school. A close relative of mine has decided enroll in a program starting this fall and after all the news articles and blogs that dump on the low tier schools I have some serious reservations on his decision. He has about 4 years experience working in a bulge bracket bank and wants to do financial law after he graduates so I can buy arguments that the school pedigree not mattering as much...or is he being too naive?

If he doesn't do extremely well then your "relative" will get washed out of law like the rest of the class. Typically what happens to a person like this is that they are much more adept at dealing with law school that your average 2.8 humanities major that goes to a law school like this. So they do well and they come out ok.
