TOP 3 MOST UNDERRATED LAW SCHOOLS?!?!
« on: May 11, 2006, 11:56:50 PM »
Hey all...

This is just a fun and curious type of question, but I would love to hear from everyone about what you think are the TOP 3 most underrated law schools in the country? (not including schools in T14 please b/c they are already T14 and it wouldnt make a difference to be ranked up or down a few spots) If you want to explain your reasoning then that would be great as well....

In my opinion the list would be 1) USD 2) Wisconsin 3) Tulane

ANY THOUGHTS? Thanks...

1)Thomas Cooley
2)Chicago-Kent
3)Maryland


These are all top 20 schools, according to the 2005 prestigeous Thomas Cooley Rankings, but are nowhere near it on USNWR! They are obviously getting ripped off.

DrPepperGuy--good luck getting serious replies here. This thread has a "rip on NYLS or Cooley" hijack written all over it.

however, i would agree with your assessment of Wisconsin; I know little to nothing of the other two

Haha, I hope not! Well, its all good although I thought it would be a good idea to get people honestly talking about the schools that they think are lacking respect for XYZ reasons but we'll see where it goes. Come on people, lets hear what you think...

Harvard is better than Y or S, therefore it is underrated.

Chicago is better than CLS.

Michigan is probably the 5th best ls in the country.

Interesting, but does it really matter if you are "ranked" 1, 2 or 5? Anyways, I hear from a lot of people that Georgetown is VERY underrated also!

I am still sticking with my TOP 3....thoughts?

Fordham's gotta be in there.  After all, they were discerning enough to reject me.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Nah, people just like it cause of NY.  Overrated for that reason.  Salary is high because of the market.
