Classroom discussion tends to be policy-heavy at the top schools, having little bearing on what is tested on exams, or what is necessary for success as an attorney.
I'm sorry, but this is nonsense. I know you read it somewhere, but the idea that all you do is talk policy at top schools is completely untrue.
BTW: If you look at the placement numbers in biglaw, UH is actually pretty much at the very top of the second tier.
STCL is certainly one of the better T4s out there, but it is simply nowhere near UH in placement.
