In this faction, the view is that legal jobs are hard to come by without geographic ties. Then there is another group, mainly attending <T20 schools, who feel that legal jobs are hard to come by without geographic ties, but going to a regional school is a tie to that region. Obviously, I'm in the latter group, and I am particularly frustrated not only because the first group disseminates information with which I disagree, but because the first group has absolutely zero experience attending regional schools.
Nobody is saying that going to a local school is not a tie. We are saying that the person whose only tie is a local school is at a disadvantage to someone who is born/bred from that area. When only half or so of the people at local schools actually get jobs as lawyers it seems stupid to put yourself behind the 8 ball by attending a school where you have no previous ties but the majority of your classmates do.
