If you go to Columbia, you could become the commissioner of the NBA like David Stern, the POTUS or a Justice on the Supreme Court. If you go to Cornell, these types of jobs (especially POTUS) are not going to be attainable.
TLS has given me a lot of flak for this, but I still say Columbia is part of the T-4: HYSC. Columbia makes me cream on myself just by hearing the name. Their history and the prestige of the place speaks for itself.
However, if you don't want something super prestigious, then there is no point in attending Columbia. If you just want a run of the mill Big Law job, I can't really see going to Columbia as being a wise choice.
I would pay sticker at Columbia and above. Beyond that, I wouldn't pay sticker at any other T-14's, especially at Columbia's TTTTTT-6 cousins of NYU and Chicago. If nothing else, it should be YHS C CP NBV NDMC G. That would be how I would rank the T-14.
quoted for some of the dumbest shit i've read on tls today =x
There isn't anything dumb about it. Defend your statement. Don't just post some weak, one sentence garbage.
Columbia is a lot-- A LOT-- more prestigious than NYU and Chicago. What the hell is the point of paying a shit load more money at Harvard, Stanford, Yale or Columbia if one justs want a Big Law career? Exactly. It is stupid. There are future Senators, Supreme Court Justices and general counsel for Fortune 50 companies on this very website right now. YHSC would give tremendous bump for those type of careers.
