OP- Get a life, homey

My stepfather went to a school on that list. He owns his own building and practice in South Florida on A1A and makes more money some months then you will make in a decade of work.

I scored in the 160s on the LSAT (hit the 170s in practice) and am going to one of the schools on that list as a part-time student on a scholarship. Some of the students in my class aren't very impressive, granted. But the top 1% of my school are brighter than the bottom the bottom 1% of a T14 probably. Point is, to summarily dismiss a whole school and its students as weak due to LSAT and GPA is myopic.

Anyways, I am sure that ultimately while your degree may be more prestigious, my bank account will be. You hang your degree on the wall and drop the name of your school at cocktail parties, cool guy. I'll forget you existed till i look at the surveys of where my income ranks in relation to the graduates of T14 schools.......and smile. Regardless, you probably need to gain some humility and perspective instead of drawing your identity or worth from the school you attended. I am sure you are a HUGE tool anyways who struggled through the social aspect of college and are as repulsive to females as you are offensive to many on this board.

Someone making so much money wouldn't rage so much over their school being made fun of. Probably lying.

Only on TLS would someone actually go through the trouble of even composing this list. This place is great though, it reminds you of what a lot of lawyers will be like in the real world. Whether or not one wants to admit it, a lot the personalities that pervade this site are very common amongst lawyers. Not only that but that type of personality is a real asset in the business world. Having that "I'm the Mfing best and better than everyone else" condescending attitude is a real asset in corporate law.

Did anyone else think of some drunk guy wearing a belly-shirt when they read this? You know, with the belly hanging out beneath it? Like Austin's famous Leslie (RIP)?

How can a school remain ABA accredited if half of its graduates don't pass the bar? Doesn't that suggest there is a problem with the system?

If anything, Burger should be showered with congratulations for putting into perspective the grim prospects some of these schools potentially offer. After all, most people who attend aforementioned schools will be investing 120k+. Why not do it with complete information?

We have different ideas of what it means to be "completely ripped out of (your) mind." I had to read that 3 times because I kept thinking..."well, I guess if he's really fucked up then he would wear a cut-off?"

Frightening how many of the schools are in Florida.

Florida could stand to lose about 6 law schools and still have too many.
