How do we know flame is flame? He encourages us to attend higher ranked schools and then later encourages us to attend lower ranked schools with $$$. So apparently MVPB will get fucked by the economy but everyone else is okay? That'd be some ace logic.
Not a troll, not flame. As a UVA student, I'm just urging you not to drink the UVA Kool-Aid like I did. UVA, ITE, is like Vandy in a normal economy. You need to be in the top 25% to be competitive. If you are enrolling here without a scholarship and don't have parents willing to bail you out if you don't land a biglaw job next summer, think long and hard about your desire to go into law. You will probably be trolling craigslist for shitlaw jobs along with the vast majority of other law grads from TTTs.
Of course everyone else won't be ok. The T3, possibly T4-T6 will be largely immune from ITE. If you have a full ride at a TTT it doesn't matter what you do after LS because you won't have loans.
Please explain why NYU, a school that historically places a large majority of its graduates in the hardest hit market, will be a much better bet than UVA in the near future.
Also, what compelled you to come to TLS and make these your first few posts? You can't stand happy 1L faces? It's about 1000x more likely you're just a jackass trying to get a rise out of people, and have no association whatsoever with UVA (feel free to disprove this with Facebook). No one can say for sure exactly how bad hiring will be, especially not at certain schools.
And I know people who were nowhere near top half at Vanderbilt and got great jobs in secondary markets in the good economy. This suggests to me that you don't know what you're talking about and are probably a flame.
