good T3 schools

For the most part, an oxymoron.

The best t3 school is the one you pay the least to go to IMO.

I wondered how long it was going to take for someone to say something like that...

I am looking for information on good T3 schools.  I would like to go to a T3 school and transfer to a T2 school.  I would like to find a T3 school that would not mean the end of the world if I was unable to transfer.  I am looking for pretty generic information about T3 schools (job placement, employment stats, competition from higher tier schools, etc).  I was told in another thread that St Thomas and Michigan State would be good places to look at, any others out there?
(I dont care about biglaw).

So basically it is only possible to go from T3 to T2 if you kick ass in law school but even then it is still not guaranteed that you will be able to get into another school?   :-\

Any sugesstions on good TTT schools?



No, I wouldn't say top half is "kicking ass".  It's doing well, but it's not top 5-10% either.  A good Third Tier is one which is regionally well respected and doesn't compete with a lot of higher tier grads in the region.  Off the top of my head I'd say Michigan State and St. Thomas are both good because they seem to be quite generous with money, are still fairly well respected and have relatively large local markets that don't get a ton of competition from higher tiers. That or a good state school that places well in its region.  You should never be spending 35,000 to go Third Tier.  That's a recipe for disaster.   

Thanks, I appreciate the advice.  I will certainly look into those schools.  You mentioned that $35000 at a T3 is a recipe for disaster, how so?

TTT is a xoxo term.  To some CCN is TTT because it's lower than HYS.  So be more specific of what you condier not great school.

I apologize I thought TTT=T3 but I just noticed that it means something else.

I was just wondering what the realistic possibilties are of transfering from a TTT to a 50-100 school are.  I just took the LSAT for the second time and I dont feel very confident about the outcome.  I know I did better than the first time but I am still not sure if I have done well enough to get into any of the schools I want to go to.  I am pretty sure I could get into a good TTT but I would ultimately like to end up at one of my first choice schools. 

Any suggestions on good TTT schools?
