Obviously I'm referring to Univ of Penn.

u penn isn't a state school, unless by state school you mean "school with the name of a state in it."

The Penn mention is a joke, right?  lol.

Penn State is a good school dude.

....for undergrad.

  I concur, the disparity between grad/law programs and undergrad is unbelievable.  Sort of like how Stony Brook and cali-San Diego bring it in grad programs yet are non-descript for undergrad.

Penn State has some decent (not tip-top) grad programs in sciences, business, education, humanities.  I think the law program will be at least on par with the other PA state schools within 10-15 years.  After all, they just bought Dickinson not too long ago and are starting to funnel some money into it.

I did. That's why I called the thread the state schools, as in I was referencing a particular group, and also why state was in quotations. Note that these schools are ranked 7-10, so I saw them all as in one tier. I guess I should have made that more clear.

I don't get this joke?

If Penn gets a spot then Buffalo should.  At 13000 a year for law school its a steal. You can pay for your entire three years at Buffalo what it would cost you one year at a private school.
