Q: So, what law school do you go to?
A: I go to Samford.
Q: Wow....Stanford is an awsome school.

That could also be a messed up with Harvard vs. Howard and to a lesser extend PENN and Pen State.

What other law schools are out there with similiar sounding names but very far from each other regards to ranking.(This would definately EXCLUDE University of Arizona vs. Arizona State or FSU vs. UF).

And the best one of all:  NYU vs. NY Law School.  So close, yet oh so far away...

The stats (GPA and LSAT) of their class is almost exactly the same. The ranking is so far apart, and the employement if in favorite of UA-Fayetteville.  I always wonder why would someone choose UALR (with few exceptions, including family in LR, etc).

However, the ranking are not that far apart though, unlike NYU vs. NY Law, or Stanford vs. Samford, or Harvard vs. Howard.
