I often call people names, but I sometimes contribute to the board. I'm a little jaded and may jump the gun from time to time but there are a lot of trolls on this board and most of the time I'm right when I call someone on it...Also, I've been told on more than one occasion that I'm the "best poster of the new cycle" or that someone likes my posts...So yeah, I may not be the best, but I'm far from the worst...
my school actually does equal biglaw.

no school guarantees biglaw period. i know a few from HYS that couldn't get biglaw. even at UVA there are people that can't get biglaw.
I can speak intelligently about the perceptions of some 0L's. Many think T14=Biglaw, when it is not true outside HYS, if it is even true for them.

But.... looking at employment data for T14s suggests that most of them have at least half their class making market rate. At the very least, T14->biglaw gives better odds than calling heads on a coinflip. The same can't be said for (almost) all the other ABA schools. For 0Ls (and aren't we technically 1Ls now that the school year is over?) trying to make value-added decisions based on this information, polemics like QuoteI can speak intelligently about the perceptions of some 0L's. Many think T14=Biglaw, when it is not true outside HYS, if it is even true for them. often get in the way.
So we should tell all 0Ls that T14=Biglaw, when you just admitted that some of the lower T14's place around 50% of their class in Biglaw?
Or is everyone on this board the same - they are just seeking validation in their own decisions/thoughts
