1) He never stated he scratched out CUNY.
2) You assume too much. There are reasons to go to CUNY that have noting to do with ranking.
3) You the one that brought up no debt. That's a good reason.
4) Tax payers bail you out?- that explains a lot.
5) Tax payers? what?
6) Ah tea party?
7) Go Ron Paul 2012
8 ) I know this is a douch.y way to do this.
9) Idc
10) Tax payers? What?

Maybe you guys should kiss just to break the tension.

Oh I noticed that about you Duncan.  Its kool.  You will have to get used to defending CBEs. The law attracts too many insecure d.bags that think they can make themselves feel better by putting others down, I've noticed as well.

My observation about you and legend was meant to be along the same lines- just in terms of a trend.  But not to be insulting.

OP- if you are still bothering to read this thread: steve's first question is right.  What are your numbers?  When did you apply? If we're talking 145/2.5 you might be in trouble.

Not hearing back by 5 April isn't necessarily the kiss of death. Not hearing back by 30 May, even to be rejected or waitlisted, now that's not good.  I have read a few articles lately that claim this cycle is much smaller that pre 2011 cycles, based on LSAT turn out and applications submitted.  That means admissions offices may need to change up some of their policies- admit people with lower scores than they used to or shrink class size or make huge waitlists, etc.   

Regardless, Good luck.

I suspect you got in somewhere since you haven't been back freaking.

Hmmm based on the %10 of your long post I bothered to read: You seem to be missing the point-  Both of the OP and myself. Post all of the stats you want- none can be relevant unless they address data on YOUR rhetoric.

I've never advocated s/he should go to CUNY.  Our little banter started when you said your sarcasm wasn't sarcasm. When you said circular reasoning (used as rhetoric) wasn't circular.  Btw, all that can be fine- I'm not a CUNY fan, I know hardly anything about them. CUNY has nothing to do with it.   

The OP's top choice is CUNY.  That decision seems made.  S/he never asked you if they should go to CUNY.  Why are you trying so hard to discourage?  The question is unrelated.  CUNY is probably the best choice for the OP because of the low debt.  Am I saying you're right? Partly. I would loosen the noose a little because CUNY is the best choice for some people and successful attorneys do come out of CUNY.

The ridiculous examples I used weren't enough.  Wow- Congrats. We're arguing pointlessly and off topic. We have no debt. We're winners.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Vermont Law?

I don't know the VT market. Maine is a school I personally like. Do they have a market in VT? Idk. UConn probably does in all of NE, but again VT is small, Idk. Addressing the residency issue: there is a level in between in-state and out-of-state in New England.  You may not need in-state residency to save substantially on tuition.  I was thinking because of that most VT (and NH) attorneys go to ME or CT. 

I'm not directly trying to discourage you from VLS, like some others.  VLS may be a force in VT, I'm actually curious about that. Just saying the market in VT is tiny and consequently influenced by other NE states.  Influenced more than a very expensive private school sat in the middle of nowhere rather than an urban setting where it could affect influence? Idk.

My buddy went there not caring about any of that because he knew he wanted to practice in the South East, if all their alums think that way and are neither from VT or stay, then....

I don't really know the VT market or VLS, just speculating trying to figure out the relative situation.  Interesting for me, very important for you.  Good luck.

Villaraigosa went to People's?  That's awesome.  I noticed he never passed the bar :(. Raises a question: has anyone from People's passed the bar and is practicing?

Do CBE students seem more long winded and formal than ABA students?

I'm not knocking non-ABA schools, btw. I have met successful non-ABA grads. Depends on the school and the region, just like with ABA  schools.

The topic was pretty generalized to begin with, have we really strayed that far?

Meh, use an obvious and simple equation to answer a problem that's so vague and pessimistic it comes off as sarcasm because it is circular in reasoning? 

It wouldn't be without using the "congrats" followed by condemning prospects of no job, btw.

Congrats, you are going to prison for 20 years and have no debt.  You're a winner.
Congrats, your leg fell off and you have no debt. You're a winner.
