I know you aren't supposed to base law school decisions on anecdotal experiences such as this one, but despite SIU being in the region I want to practice, I now have zero desire to attend SIU if this guy is going to be there lol.

Agree.....

Quite bluntly, I cannot stand people who blindly try to persuade others not to attend "lower tiered" law schools. Such people have very parochial view of things to say the very least. People like these, who make the USNWR their Bible, would be completely lost without their precious rankings. Such adherence's arise out of the genuine fear and insecurity of one’s own abilities. But I say to them that glorifying such arbitrariness is an infantile disease that should NOT be spread. Twenty something years ago, there were NO rankings and it really made no difference that I could have attended a school that is would now be inexplicably categorized as tier 2. Perhaps, if you are too worried that without attending a top law school will keep you from being a good lawyer, THEN you shouldn’t attempt to become one. It is not for you.

And USNWR should be ashamed of themselves for changing the legal profession for the worse and those who listen these Sirens should punch themselves in the face to sober up to reality. A pox on all their houses!
Honestly, after reading all this, I don't agree with the OP's reaction of frustration, but the conclusion that attending anything but the T14 is a risky investment is completely baseless and is nothing but a misguided opinion. I have never, in my entire legal career, met a lawyer that was bitter about having attended law school or thought that it was a bad investment (as if forgoing law school would open so many other doors for people). It becomes less and less important when you get out of law school (but, of course, some of you wouldn't know that yet). Interestingly enough (and quite telling), the only place I have seen such negative sentiment is on the internet. So it’s usually people sitting behind the security of the personal computer that complain, make stupid accusations and disseminate idiotic elitism (which, ironically, hurts the people disseminating it). But it’s safe to say that these people are usually frauds (much like the infamous Loyola2L).
Don’t worry though, your opinion will probably change the moment that a veteran 4th tiered law graduate making three times your salary wipes the floor with you in the courtroom (I’ve seen it happen and it does happen to the “best” of us).
Good day All!

I had a couple of snarky replies involving Starbucks wages and 11th graders who just discovered the thesaurus function on MS Word worked up, but this is probably the best one possible anyway.

Of course you agree, since you are Lonnie. Pretending not to be kind of undercuts your whole argument, too.

Goodbye, again. How many times will you keep coming back?

I doubt you'll find many law school graduates who are practicing lawyers that feel their investment in law school was a complete waste. It's more likely the people making your coffee and trying to sell you a car who went to law school would be the ones upset.

That's like rationalizing applying to law school because the median salary for lawyers is $110,000. That's great, if you become a career lawyer with your law degree.

This. So much this.

Especially at TTT schools like OP wants to attend, the issue isn't how happy are the graduates who found jobs as practicing lawyers. The issue isn't even how unhappy the graduates are who didn't find jobs as lawyers and have become debt-saddled bartenders. No, the issue is how there's 5 or 10 or even 20 unhappy grads who couldn't and will never find work as lawyers for every 1 happy lawyer you find.

Anyone who willfully ignores the low employment rates for lawyers coming out of these schools deserves what they get from doing so.
