Agreed. I put H with Chi because I also think H is WAAAAY overestimated. It's only real benefits come if you make H law review or in that one in 3000000 chance you get into deep politics. Betting on those, though? Stupid

I got into Uchi last year w/$75k but I turned it down cuz it would have left me never seeing my SO who I'm madly in love with. I've been kicking myself since as I really am interested in academia (I'm a great teacher) but I'll live (going to Cornell w/a fat scholly this coming fall instead)

Edit: we live in NYC. Also, congrats on that Uchi acceptance


No need to apologize. Great decision! Cornell is basically the new "C". Although if Columbia manages to turn the ship around (unlikely), it's possibly we'll settle into a new "CCCN" tier.


Lmao it's not really (I know its rank) but it is a good school in an acceptable location

Lol, that's egregious and actually pretty funny rankings trolling by Chicago. One year of slight U.S. News bump and suddenly they think they're basically the HLS of the Midwest. It doesn't matter which order the Cs go in CCN, it's still CCN.


I've personally judged Chicago as above CLS for a while now and my opinion personally wasn't changed by the rankings shift. CLS doesn't place into academia or clerkships well enough for its spot imo

Let it be known to all: the 0L sea god has spoken. Bow before his divine judgments and greatness of teaching ability.


Better a seagod who has placed students at Harvard Law and NYU than a douchebag


How does it feel to be both though?


I'll never know. And neither will you

Of course, your average top law grad couldn't care less about academia, so they go to CLS to get the biglaw gig they want.

Oh of course. And I definitely don't know that I'd be any good at the other, much more necessary aspect of academia: research. I just know I'm a pretty bomb teacher so it would be a potentially very enjoyable career option

You should check out the lawschooladmissions subreddit. It's just people gloating about getting into GULC, and how they withdrew from 10 T50/TT schools. Then all the plebs come to congratulate him and thank him for opening a spot in those schools.


Ew, I don't like you. Perish the thought someone is proud of the law school they got into. It's a big accomplishment for a lot of people to get into GULC, a damn fine school. And it's an accomplishment to get into good regionals as well. I hate this kind of elitism.

If you see a difference between YHS and CCN, you're probably an elitist. T13 unicorns are bad enough without the world class *******who divide those schools up into different tiers and then **** on each other.

Nah man, You got some internal shit to work on. You assumed I was dissing on GULC, and I wasn't. they're humble bragging about all the schools they get into while letting everyone know they got into a top school.

I didn't assume, you specifically used the word plebs to describe the people congratulating someone who got in there and who wanted to go to a T50. There's really no other way to take that.

Fine, replace GULC with Yale and see if you can spot the humblebrag.

I guess I'm just willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt that they were happy, rather, than gloating. But even then, the comment about the plebs thanking him for opening a spot doesn't strike you as a touch elitist?

Nope, just trying to put some Humor in. I would have used sheeple too, but I liked pleps.

You need to destress some and imo trying to shame people online doesn't help.

Doritos are a TTT snack. Best not let anyone know your snack choice preferences.
