My roommate has a Maxwell MA. He's not doing so hot and neither are his friends. But I'm not going to get into an asinine debate about non-law programs. If you gave a shit about UB you would know it has some extremely competitive programs.

school, for fucks sake. All i said was that UB is the most respected law school for upstate legal
hiring between UB/Syracuse/Albany, and that is absolutely a fact. I'm not debating your other shit.
Like you, I got my undergrad from UB, so I know enough about UB to comment on its academic programs.
Actually, that doesn't automatically qualify you to know anything about legal hiring about western New York, as you've already indicated:
I can't speak to what employers prefer in Western/Central NY
Again, this has nothing to do with what random ass programs are better at different schools. This is about law school and legal hiring. Stop attacking the arguments that I'm not even making.
I know Law students whom are currently in Law school at UB and they are not as confident about their future legal careers as you are. If Buffalo is so good, why did you flee the first chance you got?
Well as long as you keep attacking a gigantic field of strawmen I'll humor you.
I never said UB was a top flight law school and one should choose it over any other school. You're limited to practicing in upstate NY (mostly Buff/Roch), and perhaps you can get down to NYC if you have excellent grades.
Of course I would leave UB to go to Penn. Western New York isn't the most prestigious and exciting legal market. But I'm sure East Lansing and fucking Detroit are better, right?
All I am arguing (and care about), is that I think it is better for OP to go to Buffalo than MSU. And, for purpose of comparison and to support UB, it's sure as shit better than Syracuse Law.
Syracuse has programs that are vastly better than UB's programs. Check the stats. UBull pride shouldn't blind you enough to tell a stranger on an internet forum to make a "TURRIBLE" choice
If this was a website where people debate anything other than law schools and legal hiring, I would not be here. But this is about law school, and UB is better, and you wouldn't know the difference. Go home.
