Here's my opinion of t3 and t4. I will be attending a t4 school next year and I do not anticipating it hurting me too much, the reason is I want to stay in the area so I am going to school t4 schools are usually able to place in firms in their area, yet not so good at national reputation and distance. So I will be attending Widener and I plan to stay in the Philly area and at least start my career there. So I do not anticipate there to be too much problem since I know I want to work in the Philly DA's office and Widener has no problem placing there. I could most likely get into any t3 school around, I was waitlisted at a second teir school, however Philly has no ttt schools out of its 5. I think that it's important to like the school and its city more than its rank, first off the rankings are flawed and they do not reflect quality of education. If you do well in any law school you will be able to find work. Now if you are looking for 175k starting salary in NYC or DC you may have a tough time, but if you're willing to work hard in law school get a job in a smaller firm or public law and make a name for yourself there I think you will have no problem having a successful career.
