Remember, that even 30 percent of Cooley graduates (not to bash on Cooley) have jobs coming out of school. If you work hard and graduate in the top half of any school, you will most likely have a job after school, or close to it. It all depends on what you want to do, and more importantly where you want to practice. If you want to practice family law in Nebraska, there is no reason to go to a T14 (unless you really want to).
Why are you laughing? Sainthawk makes a valid point. To add, If ppl who are attending T14's are striking out, why is the TLS echo chamber still yelling go to a T14 or don't go to law school. Cooly has even show that if you go to law school and get top 20% you'll have a shot at work.
I think the new mantra of TLS needs to be " if you arent top 20% after 1L you should drop out".
