Yes, that would be useful for sorting schools by their median LSAT. Sorting them by their employment numbers might make more sense...


If only there was a site with that functionality...

I swear, there is supposedly this really cool website that does just this very thing...What's it called again? Seriously, these dudes from Vandy did it, but the name of it and its web address escape me right now. It was this incredibly smart use of school-supplied information to objectively compare schools against each other across a litany of areas including employment numbers, un-discounted costs, primary regions of placement...

Damn, this is going to bug me all day long.

Oh, you mean that elitist crowd that actually appreciates objective statistics in making decisions...

I know, the gall of those people. They don't even understand how effective an anecdote can be to confirm a decision.

You going to need to explain how LST proves QU is a great school before he'll endorse it.

What criteria did you consider before choosing a law school, and why didn't you take the LSAT again?

There was a very long thread on this topic. Let's not relitigate it. No double jeopardy here.

Could I get a link to your answer? Just wondering and I don't want to read a 50 page thread right now.

If I remember correctly, I think it was

QU > UConn: Significant debt difference
QU > Dozo: regional preference
QU > Retake: does not believe he could improve (has taken multiple times, happy with study, etc)

Ferris how come you dont like LST?

It's not even prestige driven or anything like that. It's just based off of employment outcomes after 9 months post-grad...

He has since decided to devote time and energy into learning dead American accents, the LSAT would be a distraction

Excellent and concise use of language. I'd ask how it took 50 pages to say that, but I read 10 of them a while back and I think I already know.

That reminds me. Driving is awesome.

Having a job is elitist man. The real rebels move into Zuccotti Park. Not because there's a protest, but because they can't afford rent.

I don't not like LST(they do provide a good service). A circle jerk though is a circle jerk though regardless of the thing they're jerking to is good. I was talking about how the site allowed you to easily sort between states and they started LMFAO at the "smartrank". Reason I liked the site is that several years ago I did my first law school research on it during a three hour class. It was less than 3 years ago but it seems like forever.

I find it funny that you want to have your sig removed but your avatars are always of characters that are crazy and then you defend your positions in the worst way possible.

Your signature is probably deserved

For awhile I tried being genuine and serious but people were assholes so I was just like fuck it, if they want a character I'll give them a character. Not saying I don't believe the shit I say or anything like that but if people are going to mock you endlessly you might as well make it fun.

I mean I guess I could skip paying for air conditioning and internet too, but fuck that. Some things are worth the money. Being able to go where ever you want whenever you want and take whatever you want with you is totally worth it.

Also it took 50 pages because A people loved to use the thread to shitpost and B because at first I had a conditional scholly from QU so I wasn't considering them until they dropped the stips. Most of the thread was a conversation about whether I should go to UCONN or Dozo. QU didn't become a factor until the end.

startclass WAS really good for comparing school's, but I think they had an issue with USNWR and had to remove the real rankings and change their own criteria. It still has some useful info about specific schools, but the rankings are out of whack now
