Well he didn't actually ask for that type of favor, so why did everyone find it necessary to share that type of opinion? I swear, people on this site act like they have a personal interest in the success of someone deciding to go to law school. The OP did not ask for your donations to fund his ability to go to one of these "terrible" law schools. I'm sure he has weighed the pros and cons, and decided that he is passionate enough about law to risk furthering his education.
But of course you all know best, so please continue with the bashing...
I do take a personal interest in the success of someone deciding to go to law school. I think that's the motivation of a lot of people who post on TLS regularly. What's wrong with that? If OP doesn't want the advice he doesn't have to take it, and if you don't like it you don't have to read it. OP has clearly not weighed the pros and cons. If he had, he wouldn't be considering these schools.
That is absolutely ridiculous, and you know it. I know people who have come from both law schools who are successful practicing attorneys. So I have seen firsthand proof that it is entirely possible to be successful coming out of either one of those schools. Is it more difficult? Sure! But just because a path is difficult does not mean someone should give up on that path entirely, as many people have suggested.
Making someone feel inadequate, or doomed for failure, is not helpful. These are your opinions, and good for you for having one, but it isn't always necessary to spew said opinion whenever you think the situation calls for it. How about we all try to support one another, and root for the other's success? Instead of just beating people down about a decision that has nothing to do with them.
I know a guy who won a jackpot at a Vegas casino but if someone was asking me which slot machine they should pump $100K+ into I would tell them not to.
