Quick heads-up: it's not very entertaining to see someone point out every single school that the poster put higher than last year's rankings and saying "x troll" (teehee!)


I was going to give a lesson in the Subtle Troll, but didn't think I was worth it.

For example

8. Penn
8. Michigan


You guys are funny. It seems everyone thought I was trolling for one of the schools.  :)

7 Penn
8 Michigan
9 Virginia
10 Northwestern
11 Duke/Cornell
13 Boalt
15 Georgetown

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: For all you maybe UF'ers out there

Recently UF has been trying to get an increase in tuition- $500 a semester to cover new faculty expenses. The governor is not supporting it but if it does make it through legislation and pass this may break UF into the top 10 of colleg across the nation (US news ranking)... which would in turn help them boost their US news law ranking.

Why would increasing tuition raise UF's ranking? If tuition increases correlated to ranking, then George Washington should be better than Harvard.

I'd take Catholic. They have very similar career prospects.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Brooklyn Law School, any thoughts?
« on: November 05, 2006, 02:04:04 PM »
Behind CLS, NYU, and Fordham, Brooklyn Law School comes in 4th in terms of NYC job placements.  Does anyone know what specialization Brooklyn is good at?  They do not have any specialization ranked.  Brooklyn seems to be one of those general law schools who benefit because of its location and not because of any one outstanding program.

I wouldn't be so sure Brooklyn places better than Cardozo.

I think Brooklyn places better than Cardozo because Brooklyn has been around longer and has more alumni connections, Cardozo's first class was in 1986. 

Cardozo's first class was actually 1979, but Brooklyn is still certainly a lot older. They are both decent city schools. They both have great student bodies because many good students are willing to attend a lower ranked school just so they can be near NYC. Cardozo might have a slight edge because of the support it gets from Yeshiva.

I'm really sorry. You should study your hardest and try to transfer. It sounds like it will not be that hard to outwork your classmates (especially if they are talking all class and doing their makeup in class). Good luck.

In terms of value, UNC is a good one and American is REALLY expensive for what it is. UNC also has a lot better name recognition than American. From the students I know who attend both schools, it seems like the UNC people enjoy their law school and are really proud of attending there, but the American people are always talking about transferring to Georgetown. Thatís just my perspective for what it is worth.

ND all the way.

Unless Rutgers is offering you a huge aid package, I would go to Maryland in a second. It is a much better school in a much better city.

I am also a future Terp. I committed after visiting the law school two weeks ago. It's going to be great studying law there.
