I mean, if Fox wants to talk about how successful they are, how popular they are, how global warming is a con, and how evil and detestable Al Gore is, they sure are getting f-ing slaughtered in this sense:

Ha ha.

Is there a meaningful difference between these schools in terms of placement, ranking, or reputation that would render other considerations moot:


I get that these schools are largely regional. Besides that, is there any compelling reason to go to Hastings or Davis over say, Oregon or LC if one wanted to work in WA/OR/ID, or Colorado or Utah if one wanted to work in CO/UT?

Especially if the cost of attendance was significantly cheaper?

So yeah I know this topic has been beat to death, but here is a thought I had, and I'd like other views.

So I really have no desire to work biglaw, but at the same time I really don't know what I want to do. I want to work in my home state, and there is only one T3 school here that places well. I can get in and out for probably 40K, assuming I keep the scholarship.

Conventional wisdom is that you take the best school because you want the best options coming out of school.  I also got into a few T1 schools  (22-35), no significant money, and can't get out of them for under 100K. They place well in my state, especially in biglaw, but also in other places. But again, I'm pretty sure I don't want to do biglaw, and as such I'll be taking a much lower paying job, perhaps PI, perhaps not even law related, and the debt would be crippling and force me into certain jobs I might not want.

So the classic dilemma: T1 vs. T3 w/$$$.

However, here's my thought. If I don't do well at T3 I probably wouldn't do well at T1, and if I don't do well at T1 I probably couldn't take advantage of the oppurtunities it presented anyway. So it may be better to take the local connections and the lesser debt and go to the state school in this scenario. However if I do well at the T3, and had a change of heart and decided I wanted a biglaw job or whatever, I could probably transfer to a T1 anyway.

So wouldn't it be smarter just to take T3 w/ $$$ for my 1L year, and see what happens?

General Off-Topic Board / High School Teacher vs. Law School?
« on: June 03, 2007, 09:24:44 PM »
I've noticed that there are quite a few teachers that are taking the plunge to go to law school. Why is that? Is it the pay, the bureaucracy, NCLB, or what?

I am a recent college graduate. To be a high school teacher I'd have to go back and take a few education courses to get certified. I'm not sure if I'd really enjoy being a teacher or not, but I'd certainly enjoy the hours. It seems to me the work would seem fulfilling, and I'd have summers to figure something else to do and to break up the monotony of working at the same place. Not working much means a lot to me.

There seems to be something about the prestige of teaching that bothers me, though. Like you sold yourself short, which may or may not be true. I don't know if I'm really interested in being a lawyer, but it seems that a JD would never be a bad thing to have. I just don't want to devote the rest of my life to 50+ hour weeks just to pay my student loans off.

I'm not really interested in the "only go to law school if you're sure you want to be a lawyer" argument. Ive heard it before, and I am considering it. What I am interested in is hearing advice from those who have already taught, or were considering it, and why they made the jump to law school?

Thank you.

How does it feel to have your head shoved so far up your ass?

Just in case there was any doubt that the soldiers currently over there a) don't want to be there anymore, and b) realize how futile their efforts are, read the above article about Joe Lieberman's visit to Iraq.

Be fine american, and pull your heads out of your asses, stop stubbornly supporting these idiot politicians that persist in dragging this conflict out. Ask them to resign, ask them to impeach this dipshit of a president, and implore them to punish this administration for war crimes.

Sh*t's absolutely batshit ridiculous.  ::)
