Could not agree more the rankings hold some weight, but if someone wants to live in New York then go to law school in New York. Attending BYU even if it is a top 50 something school is not going to do you any favors getting a job in New York. You would honestly be better off attending New York Law School, Brooklyn, or another mid level school if you wanted to be in New York. The same applies nationwide it is really quite simple go to law school in the location you want to live. Somehow 0L's make it so much more complicated than that and make life altering decisions based on a magazine.
