The only ones you should be considering are Columbia, New York University, Cornell University, and Fordham. The rest are going to leave you unemployed and with massive non-dischargeable debts.
Also, if you really think you can hold onto any scholarships you have garnered, then you should retake the LSAT and go elsewhere and enjoy greater odds of employment.
People on TLS are not assholes and prestige whores; we are job whores.
Are you saying that even Cardozo or Brooklyn are lost cases!? I beg to differ because I know personally numerous people from those two schools that have awesome jobs now.
Wait, please tell me you're not seriously thinking that because a random person on the internet told you something, it is factually correct? It's like everyone boasting they received a full ride...as though we don't understand how University tuition works.
Big Law jobs are difficult to come by in any circumstance T, TT, TTT, TTTT. Students have had similar opinions about Undergrad Universities and most were wrong - It's about networking, working hard, taking internships/externships, and understanding that not everything comes in a week post graduation.
If you're going to law school at a T1, T2, simply for a six-figure salary, I'm going to bet that even if offered a Big Law job shortly after Bar and Application procedures, you're going to fail miserably.
So please, be confident in your OWN decisions.
