Is it that big of a deal for me to try and go to as high of a ranked school as possible to get ahead career
Wise or do you think that non ivy leagues teach the material in pretty much a similar Manner. I ask this because in my mind I can learn so much more from teachers at a high ranked school than one like university of Houston. Or something similarly ranked.
Most law professors went to top schools. Legal academia is competitive.
To use your example, University of Houston, I went to their faculty page and, out of the first 5 teachers, 2 went to Yale and 2 went to Harvard.
