i don't see how one could argue that the #1 school in the country sucks.  it's one thing if you don't like a school because it's not the right fit for you; it's another thing entirely to attack the school as sucking when it's a fine choice for others.

why yale in particular does not suck:

* whether you agree with USNews putting yale at #1, it's hard to argue that they're not one of the top 3 schools in the nation.

* no matter where in the country you want to practice law, a yale degree will always be powerful.  some lower ranked schools do not have the national reputation that yale has, and thus graduates of those law schools find themselves geographically limited in where they can work immediately after graduation.

* yale has one of the best records in the country year after year for sending clerks to the supreme courts.

* yale has one of the best loan forgiveness programs in the country for graduates interested in public service.  if you're interested in public service, you can choose yale over a lower ranked school that might offer you a hefty scholarship because you don't have to worry about how you'll be able to pay back your loans after graduation if you take a low-paying job.  as a result of their loan forgiveness program, yale sends a good portion of its graduates into public service; without loan forgiveness, a lot of these graduates might be tempted to go into traditional firm practice in order to have more money with which to pay back their loans.

* because yale doesn't have grades, the academic climate is much more supportive than films like "the paper chase" would lead applicants to envision.  you are competing only with yourself, not with your fellow students, in your courses.  this fosters congenial study groups, where you don't have to worry about whether your outlines will help someone else do better than you and keep you from earning that higher grade.

* yale's small class size enables you to know your fellow classmates and the faculty on a more personal level than you would expect to find at some of the larger law schools.

if i tried to list all the reasons that yale doesn't suck, i'd be here all day, so i'll leave it at that.  thank you for reading :)

Monkey girl... you're seriously retarded.  I hope your classmates do underestimate you for A) allowing yourself to get golden showered by a monkey and B)capturing the moment on film and providing any employer, competition, prof, TA, or admissions worker the oppurtunity to see just who phucked up you are in the head.

Yale is a top 3 school... no question about it.

right.  that's why i see it as competing with yourself.  if you really want to, you can try for the "honors" grade.  but that probably won't stop you from forming study groups where the entire group benefits, because that won't be to your detriment the way people feel it is in a strict grading curve system.

i've read boalt's specific policy, and it's high honors/honors/pass/barely pass/fail.  they have 60% pass, 30% honors, and 10% high honors.  i have yet to read yale's policy.  and until i have an acceptance letter in my hand, i'd rather not get my heart set on them too much.  and yet if i do get that letter, i will immediately turn down the offers i have right now.

Here's my theory on the grading system, FWIW:

School X changes grading system from traditional ABCDF to "no-grades" system High Honors-Honors-Pass or whatever the names may be.  At first, employers don't know what to make of this cryptic grading system, but after a while they figure it out and start calculating some type of index number instead of a traditional GPA.   Then the school changes the system again, or decides not to compute GPA or rank, or something equally silly.  Employers can figure it out.

But, if you go to Yale, it doesn't really matter...you can probably have your pick of jobs, regardless of your all Pass report card.

I actually didn't say that Cal would "chew up" Utah.  I said that any unbiased sports analyst would say that Cal is better than Utah.  Utah had one good win against Texas A&M but other than that they didn't face a tough team.  The Pac 10 conference is the toughest in the country and I hope that USC will show this by blowing out OU.  The simple solution would be to eliminate the automatic bid to any conference whose champion is ranked outside #12.  At that point, your conference simply doesn't deserve a BCS spot and you're pissing off your sponsers by giving them a bad game.  If I was Tostitos (or whoever their parent company is) I would be outraged by Utah v. Pitt.

Anyway, since leinart is all but sure to leave USC, Cal should be the preseason #1 next year.  Also, Cal is the #2 university on the planet and would rape the #1's football team.

I suggest that next year's attempt to further screw up the BCS (as if such a thing can be done) incorporate your idea. Lets combine the polls, computer rankings and the Times rankings into create a new system. This way, we can settle the bad blood btwn. UT and Cal supporters by having the teams play for the championship. By this method, UT is #15, but Cal is #4. (And UCLA would have a chance at the BCS :D)

i dont really know why the "combined" rank would be #15 for UT.  UT is #15 for the Times ranking alone and #4 for BCS.  I think he should average these to get a combined score of 9.5 for UT and 3.5 for Cal.  Then we could say that the school with the lowest combined score is ranked #1 at everything and is the best university on the planet!

Now let's take a look at the SEC.

Auburn is clearly awesome.

Then you have Tennesee, Georgia, Florida and LSU. All four are very good teams, although florida did lose to mississippi st. which is just terrible but they finished strong.  The slouches in the conference, Alabama and Arkansas can beat the slouches in the pac 10.

The SEC is the best conference in college football.

did you even look at the link i posted?  i trust that rating much more than the rating that you came up with based purely on your personal opinion.  the fact that arizona beat asu means that a bottom team in the pac10 is good enough to beat a top 25.  also, i consider ucla and oregon st. good teams.  oregon st. was 6-5, here are their 5 losses: v. LSU 22-21, v. boise st 53-34, v. asu 27-14, v. cal 49-7, v. usc 28-20.  ucla was 6-5, here are their 5 losses: v. okl st (who nearly beat ou) 31-20, v. cal 45-28, v. asu 48-42, v. wsu 34-26, v. usc 29-24.  also, i'm wondering why Auburn is "clearly awesome" while USC, who shared a national championship last year, was ranked #1 the entire season this year, and went undefeated is only "very good."  You also said that Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and LSU are "very good."  i can only make conclusions from the words that you type and your words indicate that USC, Cal, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and LSU all fall under this same "very good" heading while Auburn is in the (i assume higher) "clearly awesome" heading.  i disagree with this tiering system as would the coaches, sports writers, and bcs computers.  if you can give me some concrete facts why you are more qualified than these sources, please provide them.

and how do you come up with the conclusion that alabama and arkansas can beat the equivalent in the pac10?  just on feeling?

kgd,

why do you say that "yale sucks"?  i don't think you ever gave any reasons.  are you bitter cause you got a rejection?  do you go there and are not satisfied?  are you just bored cause there are not any monkeys around to take pictures with so that foreigners think that americans are dipsh*ts?

No, I started the thread as an inside joke.  Those involved know why it's there.  I never gave any reasons because I don't actually believe that Yale sucks.  I didn't apply there (as you would see if you bothered to take 30 seconds and research LSN) because I am fairly certain that would be a waste of $70+$12 app and LSDAS report fees.

yea i guess so - i guess every aba accredited law school seems to have some type of good "local reputation" at least.  out there in western mass, it seems that all the lawyers graduated from western new england (in springfield).  in fact, i worked for a successful one last year - smart guy - really nice guy too.  i guess if i knew that i wanted to work in western mass for the rest of my life (e.g. springfield) then i would just go to western new england (wnec) and take the scholarship, regardless of the ranking of the school.  i actually know a girl who did just that.  her brother is at boalt - hes going to get a biglaw job.  she, however, wants to be a small town lawyer out here, so she took the scholarship to wnec.  im pretty sure she had a really high lsat score too, so she could have gone somewhere much better.

that is a poor reason BAFF213.
