I heard a report that if you go to any type of grad school, the grad school you went to matters much more than the UG you went to. I heard this a few years ago so I don't have the source to back it up but I think it makes sense to me.


Gotta be especially true of Law School right? Like what does the UG matter except as a data point in associate bios?


I have a masters from Harvard and decent numbers, and I'm having a terrible cycle. So I would say no.


Agree with Mao. I also have a Master's from an Ivy and another Master's from a top school. I don't think it means shit. Cycle has been unpredictable lol.


I think the original comment was referring to employers, not Law Schools, I don't think my MS has been much more than a thumb on the scale for law school either.


Yes this was the intention of at least my post

You're most likely in!

If you're above/at medians I would guess you're in. If you're below, then WL/ding (assuming non-URM)

Harvard got back to me before NYU even though I applied to NYU first. You officially have no excuse.
