Ok, that brings up a few more questions. First, where would rankings that would be a good determinate other than U.S. News be? Also, how do the rankings effect job opportunities other than Biglaw? Although I'm not ruling that idea out, I think I'm more intrested in something such as a lobbying firm. I'm really into politics, but not really Ecstatic about the pay that the government provides. Lawnecon, I see that you crossed Richmond off your list. Any reason why? I am looking into applying there.
What about low tier 1 vs tier 2? There is a small chance I could make it into a school in the bottom of the top 50 (again, according to the lsac calculator).
