don't quite understand why there is such a stigma surrounding judgments and generalizations- even those who claim they don't make judgments place a moral judgment on those who do (ie. you are narrowminded, a bad person,don't have a girlfriend, etc)
judgments in and of themselves are not bad (aren't they necessary for making decisions?) and with regard to law schools...why bother marketing a specific image, whether through brochures, mission statements, etc, if didn't want people to make a specific judgment about the school?
at any rate...
notre dame- went there for undergrad, conservative, catholic, chapels in every dorm; always exceptions to the rule, but for the most part conservative atmosphere, the law school prides itself on ethics
chicago- friend graduated from the law school, she says that although the school is famed as conservative, the atmosphere is much more moderate among the students/faculty
yale- remember reading in a pre-law book 'if you want to study sociology, go to yale'
