I must disagree.
Fact: Unless a T14 (give or take), an average student is substantially more likely not to get a big law job than get a big law job...so why transfer for an unimproved situation.
I've always understood why t14 students have a belief in the superiority of their schools... but a non t14 should have no such beliefs, anything outside the t14 is on the same playing field. A kid the top five of a T4 is most likely going to get a better job than all average students outside the t14, and of the remaining t50, better or equal jobs than 90% of the students.
What people don't understand is there really isn't that much of a difference between top students at T4, 3, 2, and lower ranked T1's. The real difference in the schools is that the average students at the higher ranked schools are better, and most employers understand this.
clown post bro.
Fair enough, but would you care to articulate?
Very simple math...top 2-3 percent at T4 has very substantial shot at getting big law and at least a job at a respected firm v. Does Gulc even produce 50 percent in biglaw? Why transfer to a T50 (50-17) where they place at most 10-20 percent in big law, when you are already in a fifty/fifty position? And if you are a top 1%, u are a lock unless you lack majorly in other humanly areas.
To take on an extra 100K to say I went to GULC is not my cup of tea, but I get the rational...but to put on that same debt to say I went to Minnesota or Tulane is laughable...I'm not laughing at the institutions itself, but to think that a transfer up would even remotely be better is sad
edit: first, tell me more about this: "top 2-3 percent at T4 has very substantial shot at getting big law" cuz i disagree.
it sounds like you want us to agree with you, and tell you that t4 is the way to go.
I wont take the time to try and articulate why t14 are worth it, there are plenty of stickys on that. but i will say this, it does depend on you career path and what you want for urself.
- warning: big generalization coming:: If you want a shot at the biggest cases, and top firms transfer. If you want to do local probate or personal injury, stay at ur school.
