The rankings outside of the top 20 or so are irrelevant. Nobody cares if you went to the 34th or 82nd best school, but Hamilton is right about the extreme costs. If you do a decent job on the LSAT and have a solid undergraduate GPA you can get a huge scholarship at a lower ranked school. If you want to practice pharmacy type law simply getting a J.D. from any ABA school would likely do. The costs are outrageous at any school for what you get at sticker price, but if you can get a huge scholarship law school is worth it.
Evening all. Looking for a few opinions here. I am a recent PharmD graduate and am currently working as a Pharmacist for a major retail pharmacy chain. I started developing an interest in law school in my last two years of pharmacy school. I am quite interested in pharmacy practice type law and have at least a passing interest in corporate representation. I am interested to see if anybody out there has looked into the PharmD/JD combination. Is there much demand out there for someone with those credentials? I also keep reading that law school ranking is important when entering the job market, does anybody know how much impact a school's ranking really has on the ability to land a decent job? I'm sure I'll have more questions later as I dig deeper into the idea of going back to school. Any insight the collective may be able to provide would be most helpful.
