I can only assume (mind you this is merely an assumption and could be completely wrong) that they are snobs and enjoy bashing other peoples opportunities in life. These are the same type of people they would bash other peoples undergraduate colleges. But i always take it with a grain of salt. People like that have no life outside academics, and most likely have little people skills. Little do they realize but fewer than 40 percent of Americans have college degrees, and far, far, far fewer even have the opportunity to go to an ABA accredited law school. Anyone who is able to go to an ABA law school should consider themselves fortunate and lucky, and make the most of it. Dickinson was good enough for Tom Ridge (regardless of if you like him), Rick Santorum (US Senator from PA class of '86) and far to many judges, state reps and senators in PA and numerous non-political successes to name. It has a great regional rep, great regional job placement and a nice atmosphere. You always have to beware those snobs in life. I would also recommend to those snobs not to start bashing people on law school boards, far to early in your law career to be on your high horse, burning bridges.
