Why would his firm be much different than much lower ranked firms and non-ranked firms?

Not sure if I understand what you're getting at.

He's telling you his personal view.  I just don't see how that is a basis for saying that median at Vandy gets DC BigLaw.  It may not even be consistently true at his firm.  Maybe he knows a couple of cases where that's happened. 

I don't think you're reading my post correctly. He is the hiring partner. He does the hiring. It isn't anecdotal at his firm, it's consistent.

He consistently hires median students from Vandy?  Or he would give them a shot? 

Even if so, I still don't think this is generalizable to the market in general.

No one is answering my question. Do people below the median at Fordham end up doing doc review?

They can prob also get certain public sector jobs (noncompetitive ones), or working at crappy Insurance Defense firms.  The salary you'd make from below median at Fordham would probably not be enough to live in NYC...

Quail can you pull some strings and get me off reserve at Cornell?  lol

What are your thoughts on my options?

Would if I could...it would definitely be the better option if you want to work in NYC.

Median at Fordham is probably less likely to get you NYC BigLaw than median at Vandy.  That being said, I think it might be somewhat of a toss-up.  If you really can't bear to tear yourself from NYC for 3 years, then Fordham with the money might be the way to go.  But again, it's a tough decision and I could understand going either way.

Vandy does place excellently, but I am just not sure how well it translates to the Northeast.  If I saw something that indicated a strong NYC placement trend, I'd probably tell you to go Vandy

Median at Vandy can get biglaw in DC, is it really that much of a stretch to think that median can get NYC too?

I find it hard to believe that median at Vandy can consistently get DC BigLaw.  Maybe some isolated cases, but DC is an intensely competitive market.

I'm quoting a hiring partner at a Vault DC firm. Maybe it's just his firm, but I doubt it.

I don't think his view is generalizable to the entire DC BigLaw market at all.  Median at schools higher ranked than Vandy doesn't consistently get DC BigLaw...

USC is terrible. At everything. HTH

You're going to Georgetown! Its USC with worse weather.

patently false.

USC ≠ Georgetown.  USC > Georgetown.

Reasons:
Weather
Market
Class size
Sports
Coast (west coast > east coast)


lulz.  Keep tellin yourself that.

Next time I go outside, I'll tell the sky you say hi  ;)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: T14 options - What would you do?

shivenstein!?

My first thought exactly.

You should go to Tulane, and then tell everyone that you could have gone to Yale.

In terms of prestige, am I mistaken in thinking that it is significantly more pretigious than the other two

No, you are not

Also, I thought Cornell was one of those schools that if you just graduate (unless you are in the bottom 10% or something) you are likely to get a top paying job. Is this right or wrong?

Mostly right (bottom 25% might have some difficulty)
