Just got on the "Breaking Bad" bandwagon and have pounded out 3 seasons after finishing finals. This Saul Goodman character seems totally alpha and a good example of the power a lawyer can yield if he/she chooses. So what steps do I need to take to become like Saul, the one exception being that I'm coming from a t6 (below median so no BIGLAW here) as opposed to a TTT?

1. Buy a Lincoln Continental.
2. Frequently visit strip clubs and perhaps try to date a stripper.
3. Start hustlin' like a boss.
4. Listen to Eric Clapton.
5. Wear fake Gucci suits.
6. Casually use cocaine.
7. Wear a gold bracelet with "scum-bag" and a $ engraved into it. (2d most important)
8. Work out hard and get ripped up like Brad Pitt in Fight Club. (perhaps most important)
9. Profit.

(1) Read all the criminal case law you can find on all the technicalities that serious criminals have used to get off
(2) Form close friendships with serious criminals to learn the practical applications of criminal defense
(3) Never, ever, ever post on any public forum your intent to become proficient at using your legal education to help criminals defraud the legal system.

See if Attorney Kleinfeld will let you shadow him.

What the hell is a t6? Do you just not want others to think you don't go to a t7?

I don't know what CCN means...but I just don't get why people have to be so uptight about their law school ranking.

The first thing you need to do is to purchase a giant, inflatable Statue of Liberty or, if you want to be distinctive, a bald eagle. You instantly legitimize your whole operation. No one will ever suspect that you are actually helping out a meth dealer.

Also, move to somewhere near the Mexican border. It's nice this time of year.

I dont think OP is being up tight. OP is just letting us know what kind of school they attend. If OP was at YSH, they would probably say that, unless they wanted more anonimity. T6 usually refers to Columbia, Chicago, New York. If someone says T20 they probably go to UT/Vandy/USC/UCLA/Minn/UW. If someones says T30, they are likely talking about a school ranked between 20 and 30....

Posters usually share that info because it is relevent to the topic (which our banter, in this case, is not)....
