Probably Cardozo or Brooklyn.  I'm not sure which one I think is better.  Cardozo places better in biglaw, Brooklyn is right by the court system.  I think I'd like to do a clerkship, especially at the 2nd Department of the Appellate Division.  Cardozo is down near Greenwich Village though.

Arizona State, Pitt, Tennessee, or Cardozo

Temple University. /troll

The problem is that in the 30-90 range or even more broadly, most of the schools are substantially similar in admissions standards and probably substantially similar in terms of faculty quality. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible to objectively measure which school is best, asssuming you can even define what 'best' means.

Consequently, it comes down to personal preference, i.e. what is best for you.

I'd make a crack about #50, but eh...

At that point, aren't career options mostly the same? Some regional?

Wouldnt this all depend on where you want to practice?

In my case, the best school would hands down be University of Mississippi.  Of course, if you don't want to practice in Mississippi, your mileage may vary ;)

I'd guess #'s 50-70 are still better than 70-100. This is somewhat anecdotal, and I know the USNWR rankings are arbitrary, but there are a couple schools in the 90-100 range that are still rancid TTT's (even if the rankings don't agree), such as Mercer and GA State for my area. I'd guess Temple or American, but this is really because of the job prospects in semi-large cities they're located in.

I'd say the best schools 50-100 are the ones with the best regional pull... so the "best" really depends on where you want to live. Or you could use my tie-breaking criteria: sports teams... nothing is better than March Madness and the entire football season. ;D

"rancid ttt's". holy *&^%. funny.

I'd say ASU, Cardozo, Miami, Houston are the tops in the 50-100 range.

Cardozo should not be in the running.  They are way underrated at whatever rating they are at.  They should be in the top 30 for sure.
