This thread is proving my theory correct, that CCN students are more butt hurt about not getting HYS, than lower T14 students. It's like getting Silver medal in the olympics. You send your life thinking if you only did a little better. The Bronze dood is just happy to get a medal.
CLS is worse than HYS. At some jobs like academia it is considerably worse. But for big law it's only a little bit worse. And all that doesn't equal 150K.
I certainly feel that way about the silver medal thing. Some cls people are comfortable walking around with columbia law school shirts. WTF would i be caught wearing shit like that to class? It's like wearing your silver medal all the time.
I guess its cool bro if you're settling for silver and like telling people you competed in the olympics.
According to stanford people, the difference between stanford and hamilton is not 150 k, but more in the five digit range.
Guchster, I really respect your honesty and candidness. All too often on TLS, I see people hiding behind facades to mask their inner insecurities. I really respect that you are open about the inferiority complex that is apparently even at a school such as CLS (I would KILL to get in there! Actually it's definitely a goal school of mine, although HLS is my ultimate reach).
That being said, aren't HLS and SLS silver medal schools in themselves? Yale has always been #1 since the rankings began, and I bet a ton of HS are upset that they didn't get into Yale. So don't feel too bad, since there are students in Harvard and Stanford who I'm sure feel the same way as you do. Just trying to put this into perspective....
