Yale or Boalt? I'd take Boalt.

I'd say you are in a very small minority.

Specialty rankings were introduced as a means for selling more volumes of USNWR

uh, and what were the general rankings made for...to make USNWR feel warm and fuzzy inside?

I doubt it.  IP firms gorge themselves on Boalt graduates, especially the ones in the Bay Area.  Of which there are many.

I guess you're just talking to somebody with an East Coast Bias.

I would go to Boalt, it is my top choice.

And Mugatu is right, I want to work in SF after I graduate, and I have looked over the rolls of attorneys at the top firms in this area. And what you will see is (especially at firms that focus on IP)... BOALT, BOALT, BOALT !

Which also contradicts what another poster said, that UCLA places better in N. Cal. than Boalt. YEAH, RIGHT! That entire post should be disregarded on the basis of that error.

I guess the two of us are in the same Boalt.  (get it :D  :o ::) ;D ;D :D)
Mr. White: Smoke?
Mr. Pink: I quit.

Yale loses more admits to "decided not to attend law school" than to all other law schools combined. I think they enroll 85% of admits

I got this list off of another post... hopefully it's correct.

1.   University of California–Berkeley
2.   Stanford University (CA)
3.   George Washington University (DC)
4.   University of Houston
5.   Cardozo-Yeshiva University (NY)
6.   Franklin Pierce Law Center (NH)
7.   Columbia University (NY)
8.   Duke University (NC)
       New York University
10.  Boston University
11.  DePaul University (IL)
       Harvard University (MA)
13.  Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago-Kent)
14.  Georgetown University (DC)
15.  John Marshall Law School (IL)
       Santa Clara University (CA)
17.  University of Minnesota–Twin Cities
18.  University of Texas–Austin
19.  Michigan State University
       Washington University in St. Louis
21.  University of California–Los Angeles
22.  Fordham University (NY)
       University of Pennsylvania
24.  University of Washington
25.  George Mason University (VA)
26.  Boston College
27.  Case Western Reserve University (OH)
       University of Michigan–Ann Arbor


At the IP law firms websites search for schools, and compare which schools are better represented.  If the primary consideration is to get a high paying IP job, take the USNEWS rankings with a grain of salt, since it factors in a lot of extraneous variables (number of urinals, professor citations, actually I'm making these up, but you get the point).

I'd take Boalt.  I think the shock and disbelief that someone would pick Boalt or Stanford over Yale is felt most acutely by those with prestige whore tendencies who feel extra chuffed because they happended to get into Yale.  I'm not knocking Yale at all, just knocking obnoxious self-promoters.

Um... if that's directing at me, it's a feminine hygiene product-y thing to say.  You may change your mind about the IP thing, you may want to go into IP in academia, etc. etc.  Yale keeps all the doors open.  This has nothing to do with me.  I have had no interest in Boalt from the beginning.
