Its not just your class, its a long standing sentiment in the legal community and academic communiity. There is actualy a University of Chicago method in academia and its cut-thoat. The basic premis is that not every student deserves to work in the law, the law is a supreme responsibiltiy, etc. These people invented hide the ball. Read up on Soia Mentchikoff, Irwin Stotzky, Carl Llewellen and blame them for your school's reputation. If I was a hiring partner at a big firm would I pick a Michigander over someone from Chicago, no; would I think any better of the Chicago applicant based souly on her law school, definately not.
