Ego, do you have some evidence to back up that claim? Here in Michigan, 4 out of 5 law schools have medians/25-75s below 165, and since I've had several law firms as clients, I've noted that the vast majority of those clients graduated from those 4 colleges. Only ONCE, out of roughly 100 different attorneys I've met, have I seen one that graduated from the 5th law school. There were a few that graduated from out of state law schools, but those were in the minority (maybe 10% at most). If those that graduated from those 4 schools had LSATs above 165, why would they have attended one of those 4, instead of either the fifth or an out of state college in the top 30? One of the most successful attorneys in the state, Brian McKeen, is a Cooley graduate. I'd really like to see the statistics to back up that statement.
Edited to add the following: If you were just trying to give an example of what you might say if you were that kind of person, then I got your tone wrong. Unfortunately, with text, I find it difficult to read people's emotions or intent, using anything other than what's on the page.
