Quote from: Southwestern2L on July 13, 2005, 12:26:00 AMYou forgot Sheppard Mullin, which has 6 Southwestern grads according to Martindale.com, and 4 from Yale.Yep. You're right. Here's some other numbers for Sheppard Mullin:UCLA -- 34 ( 5 X Southwestern)USC -- 42 ( 7 X Southwestern)Stanford -- 21 (3.5 X Southwestern)Harvard -- 31 (5 X Southwestern)Sheppard Mullin is an overwhelmingly California firm with about 90% of its attorneys based in the state. Yet Southwestern alumni account for less than 2% of the attorneys.So far we've examined three large firms wiith a total of more than 3,000 attorneys, a good portion of them with offices in California. We have found a total of 6 Southwestern alumni. That is 1/500th, .002, or .2%.Ouch!
You forgot Sheppard Mullin, which has 6 Southwestern grads according to Martindale.com, and 4 from Yale.
1) 155 is higher than the 50%. Saying that it's easy to score that high is incorrect, otherwise more people wouldm thus pushing the averages higher.2) I never said anything is wrong with being proud of your school. You obviously have a reading comprehension problem. I don't know what HYS grads would say, so it's not worth speculating.3) Your poll is not better empirical data. You are polling other people like yourself who aren't even in law school yet, who have probably still not even clicked on SW's website, let alone visited the campus, and who have an agenda. It's the equivalent of, in 1862, asking Robert E. Lee and his cronies "what do you think about freeing the slaves" and claiming that represents the will of the entire nation.Go away. After a while I'll grow tired of constantly showing how incorrect you are. Then you'll be yelling at a wall.
1) I don't care how many SW alums are employed by Sheppard. Sheppard is only one employer in California.2)Half the nation does not get 155. First, half the nation doesn't take the LSAT. Second, a 155 is higher than the 50%. It's actually a lot closer to 70%. The general public might not be able to comprehend what 155 means, but they will find it impressive that a person can get a JD and pass the bar. The general public doesn't care where you went to law school, only that you are a lawyer.3)Yeah, I saw that one of our alums is on the show:-) I guess you know who I'll be rooting for:-)
I second that. I think he should go over to xoxo and try to convince all the prestige-whoring T14 kids there that Southwestern is comparable to Yale. Here's a link SW2L: http://www.xoxohth.com/main.php?forum_id=2[I will, of course, be standing by with my pop corn. ]
