I'm retiring for the night... maybe this thread will become what it was intended for in the first place at a later date/time. Who knows...

Im not sure what that quote was supposed to prove.. You jumped straight to calling me an idiot without having a reason to. When I called you an idiot I then told you exactly why you are an idiot. Continue thread.. I like picking on you since you seem to think you are so superior while calling everyone else elitists.

Not worth it. This is the end result in ~90% of the threads bearing his fingerprints.

Here to save the day. This is truly a fail of a thread which provides excellent reading whilst I eat my late night spaghetti.

and no offense reasonabledoubt but...your threads always end up being an orgy of stupidity. I'm all like..."hey, a new thread, let me just stop on in" and then you jump me and ejaculate ignorance all over me. Again, no offense.

Hope they're good at manual labor. America needs sub 170 LSAT scorers to work the land.

Well they better be able to out perform illegal immigrants, and compete on pricing. Manpower is only worth 6 dollars an hour.

This is for chatting about those schools which no one seems to chat about here.....

Surely there's some good ones out there that don't get the TLS press coverage they deserve.... maybe there's a few T3's (or, gasp, TTTT's) that someone had a friend or family member who had gone there and they have great information on. Maybe you grew up around XXX school that's a T3 but enjoys a remarkable level of prestige and placement in a 30 square mile radius of wherever, USA. Believe it or not, this kind of stuff appeals to some people.

I'll start: Valparaiso U. Yes, a T-4, but it's about an hour out of Chicago and has some pretty impressive faculty. As an aside, G-dubya Bush spoke at the school's anniversay a few years ago. They were once called, "the poor man's harvard," but not sure if that's a relatively good or bad thing. In any case, I've had a few friends go to this school (as well as some of their parents) and they're all doing remarkably well. It seems to place well in NWI region as well as Chicago. Who else has some hidden gems to speak of[/strike]?

It would have worked out just fine and became a useful thread for many if it wasn't so heavily trolled by off-topic anti-anything-other-than-T-14 sucks banter...


Yeah, but you let them take you off topic.

Wow. Just, wow. I woke up my girlfriend laughing at the amount of fail in this thread. Just extraordinary. If only you all had listened to MTal on page 2. I mean, that trolling was just relentless. Truly awe-inspiring.

OP is consistent though. He really knows how to piss off TLS'ers. This is not his first 5+ page thread. That's an accomplishment.

I'm not familiar with his threads but this one was HILARIOUS!

On to the actual topic. I happen to have come across a list (before this thread) of 15 great schools that are bargains.

Some of them I already knew of just from an advanced search through the ABA schools on LSAC.org (when i was thinking of checking out schools off the beaten path).

Being the cheapest with lots of international students compared to other similar schools and study abroads and clinics and just everything except lack of religious influence...and cheapest even if you are NOT Mormon...guess which one was number one both in my personal search and in the article? Brigham young also has NICE family dorms with an online tour available (i think that is how i found them, trying to find law schools with family housing). But then i read across the web about the dangers of a school no one in the area you want to practice in has ever heard of...and realized unless i plan on practicing out west/in Utah I can't go there. :( And I was warned about running off to somewhere absolutely no family at all can get to me easily if an emergency happens to me with a child out there. Better to stick to the east coast for that reason.

University of Toledo should be on the list but isn't...it would be a top choice as well if it wasn't so regional (I have less than zero interest in the state of Ohio)...they give out a ton of full scholarships and the bar passage rates aren't shabby. I forget the search i did on aba...but i think i combined % of student body given scholarships with bar passage and employment rates and annual cost below the typical t-14 price.

Here is the list:

15 Bargain Law Schools
By Michelle Fabio, About.com Guide
No matter where you go, law school is expensive, but that doesn't mean there aren't bargain law schools out there. Below are 15 law schools where you'll get a great education but pay less.

Note that many are state schools, but residency requirements are often lenient enough that you can claim residency after your first year and pay the lower tuition price.

1. BYU Law School1
Owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (often called the Mormon Church), and located in Salt Lake City, Utah.
2. Florida State Law School2
Located in Florida's capital city Tallahassee, FSU has a particularly good environmental law program.
3. Georgia State Law School3
Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta with a summer study abroad program in Rio de Janeiro.
4. North Carolina Central Law School4
Historically African-American institution located in the Research Triangle Park area.
5. Temple Law School5
Temple Law boasts some of the best specialized programs in the country like trial advocacy, legal writing, international law, and part-time law school programs.
6. Texas Tech University6
About 90% of Texas Tech Law graduates practice in the Lone Star State.
7. University of Alabama Law School7
Located in Tuscaloosa and currently #30 in the U.S. News and World Report Law School Rankings.
8. University of Arizona Law School8
Students at Arizona Law love the sunshine and laid-back atmosphere--and reasonable tuition price.
9. University of Florida Law School9
Located in Gainesville, U of F has a good price and a relatively high acceptance rate.
10. University of Georgia Law School10
Located 75 miles outside of Atlanta, University of Georgia law graduates had a 91% bar passage rate in 2007.

Wow at so many of you not answering the question though. I as a newbie and 0L shouldn't have had a more relevant post than 95% of the thread. Especially considering the amount of pages.

But, great laugh material in here don't let me stop you or anything. :D

Nope. There is some math involved at some point, if that yanks your crank at all.
