There is so much quality trolling going on ITT. Just about every other post is solid gold.

Nope. Employers don't follow the rankings and don't care about them.

When I was a prospie Minnesota had a recent grad call me. I was especially impressed by his willingness to do so since he had his hands full with his brand new solo.

Ouch! Just noticed that Pitt took a nasty drop. I figured they would place people pretty well in middle Pennsylvania.

are those out too


I heard Temple jumped five spots. I'm probably gonna throw out an app tomorrow, see what happens. I don't really care where I practice, I like to keep my options open. What's more open than space?

I KNOW RIGHT. Temple it is then. DROVES of intergalactic employers bro


With all of the new intergalactic space wars between Korea and Japan about to get started, there will be all kinds of legal issues that no one except us will be able to unravel since we'll have taken two clinics, one in lisbon.

That's pretty awesome. I don't think other schools have law students who are willing to take time out of their busy schedules to talk about themselves. This is definitely a huge plus one in my mind.


Oh yea. 5 point bump in the Law School Transparency employment score right off the bat for that.

Yeah dude and the rankings are supposed to measure job placement ability, mirite?

Also middle PA has a TON of jerbs so that is surprising

There's really no point in the ranking past 50.

It has Pittsburgh. Why else for the drop if not for employment?

The ordering above 50 though is quite meaningful.

At least they're making an effort to improve the culture and inclusiveness of their school. Law school is hard and competitive enough; I don't want to go somewhere where I don't enjoy it.

I think Mal will enjoy the next 3 years of his life more than most. He's really put a lot of thought into his law school decision.
