Undergraduate school matters a lot.
What's your basis for saying this?

Most people don't want to work in Big Law. Some do, but not everybody. You actually did say one thing that had a correct statment in it if you go to Cooley you probably won't work in Big Law. No matter what law school you go to the odds of Big Law are low. However, the majority of legal jobs are not Big Law and Cooley Grads I am sure do in fine in non big-law situations. Again take the LSAT and step foot in a law school clasroom or at least hold a job for a day that pays you something.
I don't see how the ABA has lasted as long as it has by dictating what legal education should or shouldn't be.
pretty sure is an opinion, beyond that would be a fact.short of actually doing a full on cross country survey, all anyone (including you) can do is give guesses and their own opinions based on the facts they have available to them. I gave other layman in semi-simular situations, you just gave "I dont think they would".
Actually, I don't believe I expressed an opinion one way or the other. And short of doing some kind of survey, I don't think people should say they're "pretty sure" of what laymen think in general.
Too many big words. Pinnacle, for example.
that's not really a big word
The odds are most clients you get in the real world will have absolutely no idea if a school is highly ranked or not.

Here is where I get my thought on it from, in undergrad people who used the CLEP test to get credit for classes they never took were seen by the vast majority of students in the school as smarter than the guys who had to sit in a chair for a semester to end up in the same place. I can't think of anyone, anywhere who actually thought negative of it.
