^ specifically related to tier 2,& 3 school differences not talking about extremes.. I'm not going to a top 25 or bottom 25 school so midrange schools. Keep this in mind.

So what are your opinions on the impact of rankings versus your own initiative/personal networking in associate/post grad jobs?

Now, I'm not implying that tier 4 can be competitive with a tier 1 candidate or anything crazy like that.. but say a one or maybe 2 ( tier 2/3 or tier 4/2) tier difference. Also,not referring to "Big Law" either. Smaller firms, gov't, public interest type work.

I am just reflecting on my personal experiences in undergrad... that in undergrad where you went to college isn't a huge concern about getting a job compared to the more important issues of experience, individual initiative,etc. Example, I've had pretty good political jobs/internships and I'm not at an Ivy college or anything like that.. just a regional university and take initiative to be involved in the community and relevant organizations... I would imagine this might continue into law school.

say you get into a lower tier school in a more desirable location than a higher tiered school somewhere else.. or something like that.

comments?

Hey everyone,

I'm planning on applying to UDM for the fall 09 entering class.. mainly for the joint degree with the university of windsor (JD/LLB). What do you know about it? Also, how is the area of Detroit around the law school?... i've heard Detroit isnt the nicest of cities (lol).

Thanks!
