I ain't going to either school eventhough I got into both. But there is no way on earth I could see anyone who got into CLS go to NYU instead. That person shows they just don't have respect for themselves.
I think a bunch of NYU people who got rejected by CLS are trying to make it seem like they are peers.
IMO there are only 4 law schools in this country worth anything. And NYU ain't one of them.
Wow, this post smacks of extreme elitism. Only 4 schools in the country are worth anything? Btw, I'm sorry we don't all have the luxury of getting into Harvard with a 3.3 gpa and 164 LSAT. You should consider yourself lucky you got in where you did and hope that with your biglaw salary you can find a doctor to remove your head that is currently stuck up your ass.
Edit: The only 4 law schools worth anything comment is interesting considering you considered going to Vandy. Is Vandy one of the four schools or has your head gone even farther up your ass since you got into Harvard?
This is exactly the reason I choose to go to NYU over Columbia. I got offered the same substantial amount of money by both schools, but I realized that the CLS would be bad for my ego ("Dude, I'm in CLS, I must be the shit"). This is not to say that CLS was a bad place, but the school made no effort during ASW to hide the feeling of 'prestige' associated with the school.
So, my point RealTalk, is that you can feel free to celebrate on your success just don't act like an authority on these things and more importantly don't be an asshole. No matter where you go you can be successful, but some employers don't take too well to a guy who's a jerk.
