#1: market (NY > LA/DC > Chicago/SF/Atl, etc.)
#2: law school GPA

so it would seem that, in some circumstances for some students, choosing the lower ranked school would not be disadvantageous.

That said, I wouldn't go making it a rule of thumb or anything.


Why am I right so often? Here's the course of most of my threads:

1. Introduce some unconventional notion or idea
2. Be attacked by unimaginative contrarian trolls who follow herd and attack any unique idea or notion
3. Defend perspectives, reveal trolls to be very naive
4. Narrowly escape the banhammer
5. Green shoots of understanding begin to sprout and the TLS community allows unconventional views to be explored.


No offensive, but this thread took 13 pages to get to a very simple point, which has been expressed a million times on various threads : Depending on your circumstances, going to a TTT may make sense if you get a scholarship (full-ride).


Yes, as much as the earlier responses were overly vitriolic, there is never a need to respond in like kind...

I'll add that I think local TTT+Scholarship is great if you merely want to use the degree as kind of enrichment. This is obviously a limited market, but politicians, for one, are well served by attending a local school in the market they plan on running in. There are plentiful examples of this dynamic, Mayor Daley (DePaul) and former Mich. Governor Engler (Cooley) come to mind...

I could likewise see it making sense for someone to attend their local law school part-time if they already have a good job and don't want to give that up in order to get the law degree...

I cant believe that resanobledout actually got banned here. In majority of his posts here he was simply defending his, position, albeit misguided.


Moderator got into argument with him regarding his views and then banned him for "trolling". Well if thread belonged to lounge (according to YCr) - move it there buddy. After suggestion for ban came from his buddy (vanwinckle or something). Despicable.

Come on man. A ban is a reasonable conclusion for this thread. :lol:
