Hello. First of all, I know that this thread will draw a lot of flak and I am fine with that. The reasoning behind this post is to open some poster's eyes to the realities of life.
It is a shame many people refer to schools in the third tier as "third tier toilets" and even worse for the fourth tier. Many people choose to go to third tier schools for different reasons. Perhaps the most obvious reason would be the fact that these individuals chose to have a little fun in college as opposed to hiding within the depths of the school library for four years. Personally, I am happy with my 3.39 UGPA as I was able to achieve this number while having the most fun of my entire life. I know it may be cliche, but college definately IS the best four years of your life, and you will never get a chance to relive them. Further, while those of us who chose to have a good time were socializing, we were able to develope something many of you apparently lack.... People Skills.
It is blatently obvious that those of you who refer to t3 schools as third tier toilets do not know how to interact with people, let alone respect them. How do you plan to succeed post-law school if you constantly look down upon people you deem to be less accomplished than yourself. Many of your future clients will not be the "cream of the crop" and if you constantly scoff at them, they will become the clients of a "third tier toilet" graduate soon enough.
Please don't take this post as an attack on those individuals who have been accepted to top schools. I applaud your efforts and am sure you will succeed in the future. I simply wish to discourage the use of the phrase "third tier toilet" as if the individuals attending these schools are worse people than anyone else.
