Fantasy Law School Team

Postby LionelHutzJD » Sun May 20, 2012 3:03 pm

Choose 6 schools, you can only choose one t14 school. Pick schools based on graduation rates, employment rates, campus life, bar passage rate, and any other miscellaneous positives. Since im doing this to get a good idea on schools i will defer to you guys to start it off. GO!

To keep this interesting, you should have to choose a Tier 3 and Tier 4 school.

(or open it up to allow us to pick a T10 and T14)

I keep getting this impression that every single person in the T14 the kind of gigantic douchebags who cares about arbitrary categories of prestige, and that the quality of life improves dramatically in this little zone right outside of the walled garden, but you know, not too far outside of the walled garden.

Since you're asking for each poster's "fantasy" law schools, then listing 6 rejections should suffice.

It's not arbitrary. We saw you coming and slammed the goddamned garden gate.

Do you know who else cares about arbitrary categories of prestige? Employers and clients.

You're cute when you prove a point I was throwing out just to kick around. I got into several T10 schools.

I am literally laughing out loud at my laptop right now. I dare to question the T14 and it's a feeding frenzy.

I'm not talking about clerkships or alumni networks. I'm talking about all the douchebags who are coming up, frothing the water, snapping their teeth.

No, you made a huge generalization about every student at 14 separate law schools and in the process came across as a bitter T14 reject. A huge part of this site is dedicated to discussing various law schools and assessing their qualities in terms of employment, faculty, quality of life, and yes, prestige.

The moment you turned down those schools, you began a lifetime of rationalization. Exhibit 1, "those 3000 people must ALL be douchebags."

Fine. I have been seeing a lot of posts lately about how much people hate their school, be it Columbia, UVA, whatever. I also noticed the lists that other people had written already were heavy on #15-#20.

And you are right, I made a huge generalization. I have a number of friends at T14s, T6s and even T3s and I get along with them quite nicely.

And you are continuing a lifetime of elitism. Exhibit 1: "whatever number of people got into a T14 but chose to go elsewhere for scholarships/quality of life must ALL be intellectually inferior people who have to rationalize their poor choices."

actually, of the two of us, only you make generalizations about large groups of people. I am only referring to you.

Maybe because the OP said you could only pick one T14?

Here's the thing: there's nothing arbitrary about it, and right now they represent the ONLY schools that it is (maybe) worthwhile to attend in the current economy

There's an outrageous difference between T-14 and anything else unless you attend a really good school in a market that you know you are going to practice in and remain committed to
