The dubious value of law school rankings: According to US News, Pace U. Law is a Tier 3 school (due, in part, to its outstanding environmental law program, no?) whereas Suffolk U. Law is Tier 4. I recently persuaded Suffolk to take me off their Wait List and into their Day Division F/T - whereas I had previously accepted Pace's offer (and must now decline). Without getting into too much detail: my wife and life are in Boston and it was more or less a necessity I remain here and attend law school in Boston (I asked Northeastern and BU for the same opportunity, but they declined).
