Doesn't matter. It seems like American is a dumping ground for students who want DC but couldn't get into the T14 or better DC schools. And I say dumping ground because its grads are screwed (there is a thread around here somewhere stating that American grads are currently among the least employed law grads).

Among the human rights/PI community in DC, no. Among the BigLaw of DC, probably.
