Top 14 outside of the Top 14

(Rankings, Profiles, Tuition, Student Life, . . . )

Is this thread stupid or awesome?

Awesome! I want to go law school in a world class city or by the beach.

Stupid! I will go law school in Detroit or Dayton or Buffalo because it is ranked 5 places higher.

Top 14 outside of the Top 14

Postby SpaceLawLLM » Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:37 pm

All this silly talk about middling law schools. If we're talking about outside the Top 14 - it's all about the facilities, location and lifestyle. Racking up some non-dischargeable debt needs to be done IN STYLE.

So, with limited knowledge of facilities and even less care to research them, here are the Top 14 outside of the Top 14:

1 New York Law School New York, NY
2 Hawaii Honolulu, HI
3 Pepperdine Malibu, CA
4 Thomas Jefferson San Diego, CA
5 New England School of Law Boston, MA
6 Colorado Boulder, CO
7 Arizona Tucson, AZ
8 Miami Coral Gables, FL
9 Tulane New Orleans, LA
10 Ave Maria Naples, FL
11 Hastings San Francisco, CA
12 Vermont Law School Royalton, VT
13 Montana Missoula, MT
14 Charleston School of Law Charleston, SC

Thank you. It can be a subjective process. How do you weigh a world-class city versus great weather? In the end, New York Law School has a beautiful building right in the heart of Manhattan. Personally, I'm not a huge New York City fan, but this one couldn't be beat.

The top 3 are clearly better. They should now be referred to exclusively as NHP.

I agree. Please post some better suggestions. I didn't want to duplicate any cities so I tried to pick the one with best facility. For example, I think the New England-Boston has a nice campus. The last 3 are iffy. I like Vermont, Charleston is a great city and Montana must be great for outdoor stuff (I've never been there).

No one should ever attend any of those schools. Ever.

You are missing Cooley. That provides you with multiple locations to attend.

Wasn't really funny to begin with, so let's call it a day, shall we?

Lack of humor on this board is bit disturbing. You guys tell people all day to retake or don't go to law school. That advice would probably apply to at least 80% of the candidates out there. We need to be more positive and give them some awesome alternative options. Your like Dave Ramsey on spending money. TLS is just not fun.

We have a sense of humor, when someone posts something funny.

Not bad, it took you less than 15 posts to figure out that the void of humor is the cornerstone of this site. Helpful hint: Even if you do not have a clue on what you are doing, you are usually better off giving advice rather than taking it. Moving on. My suggestion is to research what school has the fewest number of direct nearby competitors. Originally I thought Charleston, since competing with USC is doable, unfortunately you would also be facing UVA and Duke. Final Answer: Hawaii.

No, No, No! Cooley ranks low because most of its locations are in Michigan. I think they have one in Florida but is it near the beach? Naples and Miami > Tampa.

Would not consider Tucson to be very scenic.

What's that law school with the lazy river? That needs to be on there.
