Can anyone tell me with a straight face that the statistics from that page aren't misleading?

Is misleading statistics sufficient to support a cause of action? It isn't persuasive.

I think it's funny that the OP goes to a TTT

Someone already tried this. If I recall correctly, the school was not ABA accredited but made representations that it would be by the time the students graduated. I think the fraud claim failed because reliance on the school administration's statements was not reasonable. So if you can't sue an unaccredited school for fraud on those grounds, I think people would have a hard time suing a TTT.

It's not illegal afaik. What they do is say that 10% of grads report the salary, and tuck it away in their data and say the median is 160k. Then USNews reports it and just flat out says it's 160k, from that source. So the detail is missing. This whole thing should really be regulated more.

These people are theoreticians that mentally masturbate about the deep connections between 17th century protestantism and the construction of the constitution. Most of them have never been inside a courtroom. They seem like these legal eagles on the surface, but your average law professor is not a competent litigator. When my school had a suit over its affirmative action policy, a big law firm, not the law school faculty, provided the defense lawyers.

Caveat emptor. What blows my mind is this was supposedly posted by a law student. If these thoughts are running through your mind, I don't suspect you'd make it in the high-stakes world of traffic court.

As a practical matter... I'll bet on the TTT grad over a HLS grad any day of the week in the average state court forum.

I'm not knocking third tier schools - mine got me a $100k job, and you can too if the stars align just right - I'm just knocking the inane topic of this thread.

I don't think you and I are disagreeing with each other here.

Wait. There are STATE courts? How many of them? Why wasn't I told about this?

Because as a hot shot HLS grad, you will spend very little time in any of them. As such, they likely didn't even bother telling you about it ;)

great point about law schools being hypocritical in the ethical standards by which they disclose numbers. I will update my resume to reflect the fact that I have a 4.0 GPA with 25% of my professors reporting...

Hey. We're gritty. Why we have a trial advocacy workshop we can take, which will surely prepare us for all sorts of courts. Are you suggesting that in a back county court in Louisiana it's NOT wise to begin your opening with "To paraphrase Cleisthenes from Aristophanes' Thesmophoriazusae...?"
