I would rather get this topic on a different note and address a post that was made on the first page.
Obviously, Harvard will open more doors, but law school is really what you make of it.
I know I detest tier 4 schools and schools like Cooley, but anyone attending those schools could get into big law. It would be a much different route than say, a kid graduating from the top 5. A student who was in a tier 4 would actually have to work a few years as a lawyer, gain experience, make a lot of rapport with some wealthy people, and finally, make a name for himself in the field of law. It would take a while but it would also garner more experience and possibly a better suited lawyer for biglaw than some students who do graduate from top law schools.
My uncle who works in a big law firm always says, school name only matters when you first graduate law school and pass the bar exam. If you have been out in the field for 5-10 years, your school name doesn't matter anymore and experience, reputation, and network matters more.
