Why?
Why is Yale better than Cornell? US News?
You go where you want if you can.

xoxohth.com is an awful site. It sucks, and DOWNY is going to tell you why:

1. The format sucks. It is ugly, whereas LSD is nice and easy to use. Yes, I understand the claim that the tree format causes more detailed discussions. To examine this argument I went to xoxohth to see the "detailed" discussions they have over there. They went something like this:

"I go to Columbia and my dad makes more money than your dad. Your dad is prolly a third tier toilet janitor."
"HAHA third tier toilet!"
"I go to Yale and Harvard is a Third Tier Toilet"
"LOL Columbia sucks male private part! third tier toilet!"
"ROFLOL Harvard is so big anyone can get in third tier toilet!! LOL!"

DOWNY is unconvinced of the existence of detailed, intellectual debates occuring on xoxohth.

2. The feminine hygiene product Bag Ratio is much higher on xoxohth. See above.

3. DOWNY does not post there, thereby making it invariably a worse site. The first axiom of a good site is DOWNY's presence.

4. xoxohth does not provide for posts to be tallied. Without a post count this site would immediately lose ZAP. Wait a minute....


Props to Andrew for making the best law school discussion site on the Net.

DOWNY LOVES YOU ANDREW.

You go where you want if you can.

USNews, reputation, clerkship percentages, noncompetitive atmosphere, peers, etc.  those are my reasons.  i'm not saying that yale is better for everyone, just that i'd rather go there, and so would most people, i'd guess.  just curious as to why you prefer cornell.  i'm not saying anything is wrong with cornell; it's an excellent school.  it's just unusual to hear of someone prefering it to yale.  and it's not like i'll be going to yale anyway.  but if i got in, i'd sure as hell drop everything to go there.

For one, C. Thomas went to Yale. If by some quirk of fate I became a judge, I'd never want someone to say, " ...and he went to the same Law School as C. Thomas."

8 out of 10 law students agree: Yale is better than any other law school.  And that's only out of those admitted.

About thomas, that is ridiculous.  You can kiss Harvard (Scalia) and Stanford (Rehnquist) goodbye too.

Or you can knock out Yale and Harvard with one blow by pulling the Bush card.  I frankly don't care about that because the number of "good" people who have come from those top schools far exceeds the number of "bad" people.

"Good" and "bad" being entirely subjective, of course.  I could think of better words, but I'm at work, so I'm not gonna.

definitely.  I'm not going to let previous grads dictate where I go to law school, except in the percentage who got clerkships, etc.
