If this thread is trying to make a blanket assertion that SOME people from lower tier schools become noticeable, then by all means. Hey - some basketball players from CUNY Manhattan College go to the NBA. But with both cases, spectacular success is much rarer than at top tier schools, Harvard law, or UConn Basketball. So my question is - what is the point of this thread? To illustrate that some have won the lottery? It doesn't change the fact that when I go to a job fair at HLS, I see portraits of SCOTUS justices, and when I go to one at Suffolk, I see modern art.
