What is? Yale > Stanford?
Would you do it if the GF weren't in the picture?
Definitely. In general, I really feel like Yale is just on another plane. If I just wanted to do BigLaw and strongly preferred the Bay Area I would pick Stanford. Also if I wanted to do IP. But I don't want either of those things, and I think Yale is king. I also prefer theoretical approaches to learning as opposed to more practical ones, personally.
To be honest, if the gf weren't in the picture, I would probably pick the law school in the top six that had the best clinic for the kind of law I want to do. So that would be Harvard, Chicago, or NYU (assuming I got in). The more I look into clinics, the more appealing they seem, and if I thought I had a good chance of being involved in one it would be hard to pass that up for a higher ranked school.
