screw it, i pity "big city folks" who look down on midsize cities from their cramped NYC apartments reeking of DDT.  Good luck on your 2,000 rent payment, empty bank account  and 15 dollar drinks you flush your money on, while I chill in my sweet red brick home in which I have 50% equity while earning a mere 5-10K less than you....

it is probably run out of a van.  I say it is probably a good bet for somebody who got rejected at Cooley and Florida Coastal.

I heard with MD/JD you could be an expert witness and make 100K for showing up in court a half a dozen times a year...I am going for JD/CPA combo, most peope on here will not understand the benefit, but combos are useful for unique niche positions that pay 800 an hour...

No too many MD/JD's out there... so you might just be ok and have the last laugh at 2100 billable hours simple JD's work for the same wage as yours as you are chilling on your boat.

what do you suggest - group all the schools below T20 into officially termed Second Tier Toilet category?  It will never, happen because there are always differences between schools and somebody will always try to  make money by ranking these schools.

Whether there is difference University of San Francisco and Golden Gate University?  In terms of job opportunities, it might not be much, but in the end there are differences that may make one school better than the other.  The fact that "Public Respectability" or something of that sort playing a huge role in the rankings is another matter, because respect essentially feeds on itself, like religion.  Why is there God? Because we wrote it on a piece of paper and believe in this statement.  Same about HYS - at some point a belief was raised that these schools are the best and now this belief is simply there and I am not sure what will make it go away.
I mean if GGU and SU today exchanged its facilities and faculty do you think that their ranking positions would be exchanged?  No way, their rankings would barely budge.  It is an unfair world and you, as a future lawyer, should simply learn to understand these inequities and exploit them to your benefit.

I am idiot who is going to T30 school and will graduate with no debt.  Idiot who can get really good grades and will probably get a better job than you, because biglaw does not care if you an idiot, just what your class rank and school you go to is.  Works for me.

you can tell them apart by what top % of your class you need to be in order to get a biglaw job - there is direct correlation between top 100 school rank and percentage of students awarded biglaw job.  See link below.

That is true objectively,but tell that to the biglaw recruiters, they will appreciate the laugh they get out of this. Oh I forgot, you are not interested in biglaw, you looking to make 45k a year the rest of your life.  No problem.

yes, but most law schools, e.g. UVA, have a grade inflation table for all accredited UG colleges in the US, which helps them adjust every applicant's UGPA to a single measure.
