I've been on this site for four years now and I've seen people come and go with their different opinions - this is why I'm more partial towards the albeit anecdotal evidence/advice from my 10 or less distinguished acquaintances than LST graphs for one year
This is a good point. The conventional wisdom on here has changed remarkably in the years since I signed up with respect to which schools are on the rise, which to avoid, etc. I don't believe the reality has shifted anywhere near the same amount (though the reality of the profession has certainly changed dramatically) over the last five years, and I think that by the time a current 0L graduates people on here will probably be talking about how Virginia is better than Chicago or something.
