Oh comeone, follow the argument please. You are claiming that tier 3 students are failures and those who do not shoot for big law are unambitious losers. I say this is false and have hard evidence to back it up. You just seem to run your mouth without anything to back it up. I never said that tier 3 schools are producing inferior students. I simply stated it is a slightly easier road for tier 1 students due to reputation of the institution. Perhaps your reading comprehension schools aren't up to par. Might want to work on that.

absolutely. An a-hole as well as VERY, VERY narrow-minded.
It's really unfortunate you feel tier 3 grads are bringing down the prestige of the profession. There are many tier 3 grads who go on to be very successful and do alot of good. My hard evidence are employment rates and sites like martindale that show many tier 3 law grads with fine jobs. Also, you need stop with this flipping burgers at mcdonald's thing you keep bringing up. It's rediculous you keep using that in your argument. It doesn't happen. You are clearly making that up.
However, yes, I do believe your definition of success conflicts with the next person's definition of success. While you are probably comparing lower paying jobs in the legal profession to flipping burger at mcdonald's, many people who have these jobs sincerely, enjoy their work. Some people are very content with these positions, while others use it as a stepping stone until they make their next career move and go forward. After a certain number of years, what "class" you are in is defined by your success in the field and work experience. Sorry to burst your bubble.
i'm a GT 1L who is blowing town for the summer and have just rented my apartment out to a 2L SA in DCin response to my ad for sublet i received close to 20 responsesi was *blown away* by pedigree of law student who is able to find work in DC over the summerof the 20 responses that i received, ONE was from outside of the T14 (Tulane). The remaining 19: several stanfords, 4 or 5 yales, 3 or 4 harvards, dukes, uvas, boalts, NYUs, etc.love him or hate him - loverofwomen is correct to a certain extent. at least in the beginning stages, this profession is one built upon prestige and reputation. i had no idea it was so severe until i put this little ad up....
