Is there a difference between T14 and T25... yes.

Is there a difference between T5 and T14... yes.

Is there a difference between T25 and T65... yes.

But beyond those basic differences, law school is law school. The differences are far less obvious and far more difficult to pin-point than what the USNWR might lead you to believe.


I like how you make a completely different argument now. You are an elaborate troll.


The back-tracking is odd, but reasonable_man is still quite knowledgeable with regards to the legal profession and therefore, is not a troll.

I agree with reasonable man. AFter you get out of the top 14, every school is regional ( I would even say top 6 only are national). You need to figure out what region you want to work in, which cities you like, and which school fits you the best. Once you got this figured out, you apply to the schools that fit your criteria. Go to the one that offers you the best value that you can deal with.( tuition costs, living expenses, stipulations), and ones that offer the best opportuniuty. You need to do a lot of research on your own to figure this out.

The big difference between UF and U miami, are cost, location, and ability to be mobile. Miami is a very expensive place to live, while Gainesville is significantly cheaper. Both are in florida, but having a lesser amount of debt allows a UF grad more opportunity to take a job that might pay less, but be better in your opinion ( like the job description, like the location, etc).

So you agree that a school ranked 40 is no better than a school ranked 120. Got it.

And the UF vs. UM stance is hilarious btw.

I didn't mean to conflict with your stance, my apologies:
