Where should I go next fall? / Tier 4 Law Schools
« on: June 13, 2010, 12:02:55 PM »
If you enjoy wasting your money, then by all means attend a Tier 4 law school.  Some people make it, a minority.  Others find themselves, unless they are top of their class, having a hard time finding jobs or decent paying jobs.  Be smart and retake the LSAT.  If you can avoid any tier 4 law school, do it.  Do you really want to attend a great undergrad or graduate school, only to attend a no-name law school?  It makes you look as though there is a disconnect.  People will wonder how you attended such respected universities for undergrad or graduate and now you are at a no-name school.  People question your ability and intelligence and when you graduate with tons of law school debt, you have to go up against people who graduated from good law schools when it is time to job hunt.  Avoid tier 4 schools at all costs.

Nova Southeastern / AVOID THIS SCHOOL

Check out their attrition rates and you'll see this is not a very good school.  Avoid any Tier 4 if you can.

Capital / GO SOMEWHERE BETTER
« on: June 13, 2010, 11:50:50 AM »
This school is nothing but a papermill.  Look at their attrition rate and tell me you don't agree.  Capital rarely hires Professors from Tier 4 schools, except their own and that is only if that Professor was top of their class, has an extra degree, or attended a spectacular school for undergrad.  If you are looking at eventually working as a Law Professor, stay far away from this place.  I have a friend who graduated from a top 50 school and still can't find a job.  She had incredible grades with a prestigious law school name behind her yet, she can't find a job.  If you plan on living and working outside of Columbus, particularly outside of Ohio, go somewhere where people won't ask you "Where?" when you tell them you are looking at applying to or attending law school.  Let this be your absolute last choice.
