So if giving up Yale (that I did not apply to) for CUNY is what would make that true I disagree. I hope you are more open when you become a lawyer or maybe you just enjoy reading over contracts and making extra money for someone who doesnt even morally deserve it while they screw over those who cant even afford to be screwed. BYE BYE
VW515, you have totally misconstrued my statement. I think its quite clear from my quote that I was telling the individual to substitute Yale for CUNY in the sentence "they do not take disadvantage students at CUNY I go there and a few of my friends are also well to do." Not to substitute attending Yale or attending CUNY.
My point was that Yale does not take disadvantage students, it was a joke based on getting into Yale requires being in the elite and born with a silver spoon in your mouth (not true btw but it helps . )
In my opinion it really doesn’t matter what school you graduate from, yes I may be going to a "prestigious" institution but that is irrelevant to becoming a good attorney.
What's important is your knowledge and analysis of the law.
When you submit a brief you do not sign it with Yale Class of 2008 or CUNY 2008.
The judge will not ask you what law school you graduated from prior to presenting your oral arguments.
He will only look at your knowledge and analysis of the law and how it applies to your case.
I am impressed with the voracity in your reply though you totally misconstrued the meaning of my post.
I hope this clears up the issue, if it does not send me an e-mail and we can discuss further.
