It's the brand name; sure, [insert school here] may be a "better" law school than Cornell, but when it comes to getting jobs, the ivy league name matters.


Lolz at the elitism noob. Vault ranks schools soley on the marketability of their graduates and Stanford, UMich, NYU, UVA and UChi all come before the first Ivy. Don't confuse lay presteige with market potency. People in the know know, you know?

Exactly, you sure do get a pretty building though.

This is just not true. People in the Northeast are well aware that Cornell is an Ivy!

I don't know about you guys, but when I hear "Cornell," I think of the Iowa liberal arts college.

Haha.. my gf and all her friends went to one of like the Harvard/Yale of high schools (Phillips Exeter/Phillips Andover) and they all lol when someone calls Cornell an Ivy as if thats supposed to garner respect. You have a better chance of getting "Ivy prestige" by getting Hopkins to start a law school than by going to Cornell.

Not as in its a bad school, just LOLing at the type of ppl who like to throw out the Cornell name for "Ivy prestige" effect. They usually think they are supposed to be getting Harvard/Yale/Princeton respect for going to cornell.

I see, you mean the Andy Bernard types.

Still, regardless of what school you attend, it's absurdly annoying to imply that its prestige automatically makes you the most special among the special snowflakes; invincible to reproach and automatically destined for greatness--even if it's Princeton, Yale, or Hahvahd.

Much more credible to throw out high school names to garner respect.

I would give somebody who went to Cornell the same amount of respect as somebody who went to HYP if that counts. But I would also give the same level of respect to someone who went to HYP as I would to somebody who went to county community college. I wasn't raised to change the level of respect I give dependent on the school somebody went to...

Welcome to the Northeast buddy. If it makes you all feel better, I dont respect anyone. Just trolling the guys/gals who were talking about the "ivy name" making it a better choice than like umich for employment.

hm that's a lot of cornell hate...

while a lot of people don't recognize that cornell is an ivy
to not know columbia is an ivy in the northeast is very, very rare
i grew up in the northeast and many of my friends went to boarding schools in the area as well

i understand your point but it seems a bit exaggerated

Funny thing is that I actually love Cornell as a school. Just messing. The Columbia thing is more b/c its NYC I think. Of course they all know its a super, super school but some just dont make the connection with it being in NYC.

Sorry for the derail... continue on with the transformation into nervous wrecks.

This conversation is ridiculous. I'm more interested in whether those whose dates changed to 12/6 today are being admitted/rejected...
