yeah, i know a guy who won the lottery too.
I'm not talking about 1 or 2 people, I'm talking about 95% of customers I've had in the last 5 years that are lawyers. Most of them have told me that after your first job no one asks what should you go to, it's all about your reputation in the area.
I recently ran into someone who graduated several years ago from my current school (T50, I think). She did not do so hot (bottom third I believe). She is having a terrible time finding a secure, well paying job. The current market sure isn't helping. What surprised me is that even seven years out, with a decent employment record, she still gets asked about her class rank. I think this stuff can follow you a lot longer than I had ever anticipated.
