No, rank is meaningless. A partner that is a Brooklyn alum isn't going to shun all BLS lawyers because well damn Cardozo is 10 spots ahead.
Outside the top 20(ish) all schools are regional. And rankings do not matter between ~20-100.
So in short, all you guys are telling me to chose Brooklyn over Cardozo for a better chance at high paying job even though Cardozo is 15 spots better ranked. Ok, that's nice to know.
