Cougars are more in line with my taste. Vancouver, BC deserves a shout-out in this regard 8)

Granted, I don't have the numbers for the top priesthood spots. I'm below all their medians.

Because if most TTT (and I define that as south of T20) students had any idea of the shitshow legal hiring is they wouldn't go. And TLS gives them some of an idea who shitty it is.

This. Do we really think TTT law students are going to sign up and continually post on a website where a large, vocal portion of the users constantly shit on the life choices of those who go to TTTs?

Further, those that are more driven are more likely to spend time in forums discussing law school applications, etc. Finally, those with strong credentials are more likely to sign up and post rather than lurk.

Because the only people with the bravado to post (as it should, but normally isn't) anonymously on the internet about law schools and the LSAT are the people who score well enough or garner top law school decisions because otherwise we wouldn't hold enough self-esteem to do so.

Yea sometimes I wonder how people have the balls to post anonymously on the internet.
