Haha, yup. Cyber sarcasm.

But, seriously:
  • "School name" does not matter when transferring, your performance during 1L almost exclusively does.
  • Never go to a law school with the sole intent of transferring elsewhere because there is about a 90% chance you won't be able to.
  • LST doesn't rank "highest paying careers."
  • If it did, it would be entirely irrelevant to OP.
  • This is what's relevant: BC (68.4% full time legal employment rate for graduates) and BU (50.9% full time legal employment rate for graduates)

Read more before giving advice to people who might take it. OP is in a great place to capitalize on his distance from his UGPA by working for a 170+ LSAT. Then he can go to a T14 outright.

ETA: Just saw your link. Lol, that information has about ZERO relevance to the people currently graduating. Get out of here dude.


what does LST mean?

Im guessing Law School ....

He meant that no one gives a crap if people who graduated from a particular law school in the past make a lot of money. The relevant info is what are current graduates up against.

Any data that talks about how grads are doing far after graduation is likely to be very flawed. Would you really look at this list and say "Im going to turn down Yale for BU."
Also, worth noting that all these graduates were pre-ITE, which makes it even less relevant.

[Just in case, pre-ITE means pre-"In this economy"]

LOL thank you on the explanation. I didn't know what that meant either.
