The question is, doesn't that suggest that law students and lawyers in that situation are just VERY insecure? Isn't it true that there are more of those than the law students and lawyers they are constantly trying to bring down to their level or invalidate as "no better than I?"
Let's discuss them. Who are they? Mike Easley, governor of NC is one. He attended NC Central School of Law, a FTT.
I think the state is a big factor. In North Dakota, 80% of the lawyers in the state are from UND. This translates into a situation where most of the North Dakota congressmen in DC are typically from UND (3T)...
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.
Poor choice of words on my part - but only to an extent. The point is that talented people from lower tier school need more "luck" to succeed than someone with a T14 diploma.
