I'm worried that, if I were to attend law school, I would be much smarter than my peers who attended schools with less qualified students (and therefore easier curves, etc). I don't want to be surrounded by morons

I know it might sound like I'm being "douchey", but in my personal experiences, students from state schools aren't nearly as intelligent as my peers in the ivy league, and I find it hard to believe that their GPA is equally qualifying. Any anecdotes are appreciated.


You will get a small boost at some schools, but you are still not getting Yale, Harvard, Stanford, or Berkeley. You are almost for sure rejected at Columbia and Chicago as well.

Penn will likely value your ivy degree, but we are talking 171 as bare min, but 172+ gives you a good shot.

Most other schools won't care much, but with a good enough LSAT you can get in anyway.

And if you can't beat that ASU student on the LSAT, who says you are smarter than them anyway.


He's not. ASU, being one of 3 real colleges (all public) in an entire state, does have a high acceptance rate, but plenty of intelligent people who like AZ go there as well. Plus, the bottom Ivy schools have little-to-no lay prestige out here (or in so. Cal., where I grew up). I suppose you could argue that in an area with two schools, a state school and an "Ivy", clearly the more intelligent, on average, would attend the "Ivy" (all things being equal, which they are not, because of the cost factors and scholarships). But on the West Coast, it's Stanford > some Ivy league schools (HYP) > UC Berkeley/UCLA > USC and so on. (biased bc as a Bruin I must hate USC)

ETA: Am embarrassed at self for taking this seriously. But I want to defend my state school! : )


There also seems to be less of a culture of snootiness about colleges in the West. Lots of smart people that I went to high school with, myself included, choose to go to state schools because, aside from the very top Ivy League schools and Stanford, there is really not much, if any (maybe even negative depending on the schools in question) added value by going to private LAC or even some of the lower Ivies, but there is a hell of a lot of added cost. Here in Washington, for example, a degree from Penn or Brown is probably not going to give you any advantage over a UW degree; A degree from SPU, UPS, or Seattle U will definitely not give you any advantage over someone with a UW degree and probably no advantage over someone with a CWU, WWU, or EWU degree, but it will cost you about 5 times as much.

PSA: Unless you go to HYP, that state school in Berkeley > your Ivy League school.


Notice: I have no connections with Berkeley.

This is funny because I just read several articles on how much more lenient curves are at private/Ivies. I think the title was "Want a better GPA, then go to a private school" or something similar. Private schools have worse grade inflation that public ones.

Hey!! Dragon Day is an amazing event. Also we don't light the whole thing on fire (environmental concerns yada yada yayda). We just cut out the heart and light that on fire. With eight firefighters, two ambulances, and enough water to house a whale on standby, of course.
