How people cannot see through the transparent money-making venture that is the Newsweek law school rankings is BEYOND me. Aren't we supposed to be skilled at higher reasoning? Ever heard of medical school rankings? Why not?
WE ALL TAKE THE SAME LICENSING TEST! I bang my head thinking of the idiots who live and die on this website trying to figure out an artificial ranking system. FOOLS! I hope the publishers at Newsweek make loads of money off the idiots who buy their crap, and have a good laugh while they're at it. Anyone who is duped by such stupidity is the author of their own demise.
Now, if you're a socially inept moron who cannot sell himself in an interview, perhaps securing your future by way of school reputation isn't such a bad idea. For the rest of us socially well adjusted folks who can nail every interview we have, we'll be laughing when we see you in court. Too bad your school jacket won't be allowed in the room. Boo hoo!
I am completely nervous about applying to law school... I live in Ohio so I have limited choices on where I can go. My GPA is not the best; I messed up my 2nd year and it ruined my GPA (and ever since being on the Dean's List barely raised it). And I got in the low 150's on my LSAT. So given this, I pretty much should decide between Dayton and Capital. But I know both are ranked very low. I wanted so much to go to Case Western, but my 2nd year ruined that chance. Any advice on what I should do, or any other schools that I should consider (and that I have a chance of getting into)? Also, does applying for early decision help your chances? Someone told me that applying to Case as an early decision may increase my chances... And I am retaking my LSAT in Sep.
