Before someone retorts, why does any law school outside of the top 14 exist har har, lets be reasonable. A person graduating from the top law schools in his or her state will always have good job prospects in the future. As a Floridian, I would include UF FSU and even UM in this category. However, certain schools, like Nova, FIU, FAMU have no purpose. Even if you graduated from these schools who would hire you over a UF or FSU grad? It just seems like people are throwing 3 years of their life down the drain. These people need to realize that if you can't muster above a 155 or so on the LSAT maybe law just isn't their thing.
1st- Only 35% of people score above a 155 on the LSAT and definitely not only 35% of people who go to law school prove to be successful.
2nd - I know many
law school grads from t3 schools who are doing insanely well. Some went into business...some politics...others are big wigs at various big time companies.
3rd - Despite what 99.9% of the people on this forum believe, which law school you graduate from does not
determine your career/opportunities for the rest of your days.
4th - I know a Stanford grad and a Temple grad (you can get a 155 and still get into Temple- and I realize it's not t3 or t4 but for the sake of argument) who both interviewed for the same firm and the Stanford grad did not receive an offer while the Temple grad did. The Stanford grad, although very bright with their nose always stuck in a book, had the personality equal to that of a paper weight. The Temple grad was the opposite - very personable and likeable.
5th - I don't like you.
