That's not what I said. I like Ithaca a lot. However, I examined both schools and came to the conclusion that being in DC provides a wider range of opportunities to do externships/clinics than being in Ithaca. And it's not like 14 vs 21 in the rankings is a huge difference. Frankly, I didn't understand why Cornell Law was ranked higher than GW.
1. The difference between 14 nad 21 is big where it matters: employment.
2. There is a ton of competition to break into DC. Going to GW isn't doing you any special favors.
Come on, dude. Cornell. Wake up.
