t3/t4
« on: February 02, 2005, 02:00:27 PM »
What is the best method to figure out how a school stands in the t3/t4 levels? I realize that they are only listed alphabetically. Does anyone have good websites with reviews or rankings?

All I know to look at is clinicals/concentrations, bar passage rates, and graduation plans.

I think those are the best things to look for. You could also try to find out who conducts on campus interviews at a particular school. Also, if you are interested in a particular subject, see if that school has a decent course selection.

I looked at a few books at Borders but they didn't really tell me anything I couldn't get from LSAC. I know that my interest is in family law, elder law in particular. While it is a growing field, I also know that for me having the degree and passing the bar is going to be much more important than what name it says on the diploma.

Unfortunately for me, our spring break is sooo early (late feb/first few days of march) that I don't know what I can do about campus visits to schools more than a few hours away if I do not hear from them by then.

Perhaps I am wrong here, but if I don't find the website navigable and helpful/informative, I am fairly turned off from the program. Wonder if I am alone in this...

Q tip, you read my mind.  If you're going to a t3/t4, focus on WHERE you want to work, because the region in which the school is located is where you're going to get hired.   ;)
