Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Super Lawyer Rankings
« on: July 20, 2010, 04:11:03 PM »
I HIGHLY question the legitamacy  of these rankings. Maybe sour grapes since Pace is ranked very low, but to say that it is worse than Western New England College? I got into both (more scholarship $$ at WNEC), and I can say the two do not compare.

ILRG had the acceptance rate of WNEC at 71% (Pace at about 37%), starting salary is about 55K for WNEC, about 88K for Pace, job % is about 80% for WNEC, 97% Pace (according to admissions office), class size is the same, reputation I feel goes to Pace, and I really don't think its that close of a call. WNEC is a good school, don't get me wrong, and I am glad I got in there, but I think Pace is heads and shoulders above.


I would say:

Notre Dame
Ohio State
Pace Law (ok, maybe wishful thinking)

I think my favorite part of the article was this line: Thomas M. Cooley Law School ranked #12  among ABA accredited schools, according to Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I agree with the student in the article that the fact the Cooley publishes it's own rankings and rates itself so high every time makes it look bad. I also think that receiving an e-mail like that one would push me to transfer.

I don't see a problem with putting out rankings themselves. If they think they have a better formula, thats fine with me. I don't believe the rankings for a second, but thats just my opinion. Who is to say USNews is accurate? Just because people fall for it doesn't make it right.

I am also not bothered by asking people to recruit, its actually a really good way to recruit people. The school can say whatever they want, but to hear positive responses from students, as long as they are not lying, is a very strong tool.

General Off-Topic Board / Weekend at Law Schools
« on: July 19, 2010, 09:25:05 AM »
Hey everyone,

New to the board, and I will be a 1L at Pace U Law in the fall. Any 2Ls or higher that can tell me what weekends at law school is like? I know there is a lot of work, and is not the same as undergrad, but what are weekends like? Is it people go out one day a week? Is it really straight work?

If anyone from Pace can answer that would be great ,but I am sure most schools are similar in respect to the question.
