oh and i have not started law school yet, when that happens you can be certain i will not waste a moment of my time trolling for validation/a chance to doll out "my two cents" on this website.

Hmmm, judging from the fact that you just multi-posted in a matter of minutes, I would guess that you will be trolling these boards. Shouldn't you be on the pre-law board anyway? Seems like you need to relax a little bit.

In terms of the national aspect of ND, I'm not sure how it compares to other tier 1 schools, but I know people working for offices all over the states, from New York to D.C. to Texas to California. Of course, it goes without saying that ND has a great presence in the midwestern market. This, by the way, is in spite of the fact of some heavy hitters abound us like U. Chicago, Northwestern and Michigan, who of course, also send lots of grads out of state while keeping many in the Indianapolis, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit markets.

I'm not sure why you would have access to information regarding the marketability of current ND students that I don't have. As far as I know, CSO doesn't have access to where students are summering unles students tell CSO where they are working (I know I haven't). So...

I'm not even going to comment further on your predictions of USNWR future rankings except to say that ND has been up and down since I started paying attention my freshman year of college. It sucks that it dropped this year, but the reputation is excellent, in my opinion much better than Wisconsin. I don't know much about Wisconsin...

To do a little bashing of my own, you're absolutely right that Wisconsin doesn't pretend to be a national law school, because it isn't. I did a quick seach on my summer firm's webpage, and there are over four times the amount of ND grads than Wisconsin grads, and in terms of being national, Wisonsin has lawyers in five locations (the vast majority in chicago), only in the states. ND, on the other hand, boasts a healthy fifteen locations with multiple lawyers in three countries. Seems pretty national to me. If I had more time I would do similar comparisons with other firms, but I don't think I need to. You, on the other hand, seem to have much more time on your hands, so maybe you should do a search.

Consequently, do you have many friends?

Wow. I'm surprised you put so much faith in the rankings, especially considering you are at University of Wisconsin (or wait, have you even started yet?) which I believe is still ranked below ND... but hey, I guess you're catching up, right?

Anyway, ND has done fine by my classmates and me. It is a shame that it dropped in the rankings, but I'm convinced its reputation will continue to attract students and top law firms. I know I'm sitting pretty this summer regardless of what USNWR says.

Seems like OP, the "long time LSDer" would come back to defend his posting.

When schools are tied, US News lists them alphabetically.  UCLA and Georgetown are tied, yet UCLA is listed first.  In other words, this is not legit.

Wow, we have James bond here folks. At first I thought they were organized alphabetically leaving "university" out, but if you look at the USNWR site at the schools tied for the 80 spot, you'll see that "university" isn't left out.

Wow, I really have no life...

So, is this scan legit? I'm really surprised more people haven't jumped onto this thread. Where are all the Harvard gloaters?

Does the website typically get updated after the magazine comes out?

I scored a 147 on the lsat. I started at a 4th tier school, finished my 1l year second in my class and transferred to a tier 1 school. I am currently waiting for the summer to start my associateship at a top law firm.

I don't know if lsat is typically an indicator of success in law school. I do know that for me it was not. Keep your head up.

I was at my undergrad within the last week, to see the 9th Circuit hold hearings at the law school. While, waiting to get back in I saw a guy I knew from Jr. High and High school. He was the brother of a guy I used to be really good friends with, until he and his other buddies started heavily using drugs. Well, my friend's brother spent all of high school in a stupor, and fried his brain so badly that he was categorically retarded at some level. Mind you before he started doing drugs, he was exceptionally bright. The last time I saw him, he was at this place near where I live, where hippies and the like hang out, and he was clearly wasted. That was 5 years ago.

Well, I saw him at the law school with other law students, and he was discussing, competently, the facts and proceedings of the first hearing. I almost went postal. This feminine hygiene product, who, smoked himself stupid was in law school and I was furious. What business does the university have in admitting Jim Breuer's character from Half-Baked, into law school, when I am on the waitlist to get in? Granted he was probably a 1L, possibly a 2L and I am not competing against him.

I had no idea this guy even graduated high school, let alone successfully attended college.

Anybody have any thoughts?

You suck, and your use of commas is horrendous.

Hey all, I thought it might be nice if some of you could share what your respective summer associate programs were like. I'd be interested to know about the work, the hours, the events, and whatever else you deem important.

City, Chicago. Not sure if that makes a difference.
