I agree with other posters that you should only pay full price at TJ if you REALLY REALLY REALLY want to be a lawyer / use your law degree and if you are a type 'A' person with a drive to succeed.
no i disagree. i think the low ranking of a school is a result of the low quality of the student body. if a member of that student body makes it big it isn't because of connections or prestige. it might mean that person was naturally gifted and chose not to go to a better school. it might mean that person was a very late bloomer. it might mean the lsat failed to represent that persons potential. but i think in any of these cases the person got a legal education sufficient to succeed in the world.
Isn't that pretty much what he was getting at?
