Almost want to drop Penn from my #1 choice because I don't feel like explaining to all my friends in CA that Penn is NOT Penn State. Undergrad all over again :(

also, on the west coast, I had NO CLUE that people regard any of the Big10 schools as prestigious. The only thing I knew about Purdue is that Drew Brees played there, and they have a stupid ass train mascot. Northwestern was one of the shittiest AQ FBS schools, and is in like Montana or some shit

I would not recommend writing that in your "Why Northwestern" statement.

As a fellow West Coaster, re B1G I would say Michigan does have a favorable reputation out here. I think OSU is looked at as better than your average (non-UC) public, but it's definitely still a party school.

When I reflect back to the initial days of thinking about law schools, I had little idea what schools were in the top 10 (never heard of a top 14). Harvard, Yale were automatics. Stanford was no surprise, ditto the Ivy schools Cornel, Penn and Columbia (in no particular order). The one or two people I knew that ever had discussed NYU always did so in glowing terms - not a shocker to see them highly ranked. I had never heard of Chicago.

Then came the acceptances from schools. I thought I had hit the big time when I received interest from Ohio State, Tennessee, USC, etc. Little did I know.

You are probably the most consistently (and genuinely) stupid poaster on TLS. I want you to know that.

Probably? Is that all you got―probably? How about absolutely, undoubtedly, indisputably―don’t always be such a wimp, learn how to step up and own it! Run from LS, because we do not do probably. Forget about being an ump because saying it was probably a strike―not going to work out well. Good news is, you do not have to reply, because you are now on the ignore list―that is not a probably.

Being pedantic. It's strictly named after the land (America/US) that was named after Columbus.

Fair enough, though, it's sometimes depicted as a fictitious lady. This was douchey, I know.

Although to me it's kind of like saying American University was named after Amerigo Vespucci. Technically maybe true, but ehhhh

Conceptually, does this allow you to say that Columbia is named after a place rather than a person or people? American University's status as a namesake - fictitious, contrived or otherwise - is NOT analogous to the naming of Columbia University.

The fact is, Columbia University was - either directly or by extension - named after the Columbian period of exploration, which is defined by the existence and explorations of Christopher Columbus and those who either preceded or followed him.

On a side note, I always wondered why the UVA wasn't named Jefferson University.

This is why nobody likes law students.

And lol at this thread. Why does anyone care what a random guy off the street thinks about law schools' respective prestige.

I for one am hoping that my future law school carries enough lay prestige to get me laid, since my game or social skills will definitely not do it for me.

Said by my mother, while discussing NYC schools:

"Those (NYU and Columbia) sound nice, but if you get into Fordham, don't you pretty much have to go there?"

Similarly, she was stunned to the core when I told her that Emory isn't top-tier. Perspectives from the Deep South, y'all.

A friend got into Booth but was rejected from Columbia and Stern. She was so disappointed. I had to spend an hour convincing her that Chicago had an incredible business school. She had literally never googled the rankings. Not even sure how she formed a school list.
