I picked G'Town because it's the last of the T14 schools.  God, you're so high sometimes  ::)

I don't think that contracts are that different at a higher ranked school than they are at a lower ranked school.  People like Anna Ivey have pretty much said as much, and I think LSAC makes the same point in their own guide.     

Is there a difference between Thomas Jefferson and Harvard?  Yes, but those are pretty extreme examples.  Do you think you'll be stupider (all jokes aside) graduating from Minnesota than will someone graduating from a "better" school?  Probably not.     

The differences lay not with what you are taught, but rather your career options when graduating from a school. Assuming you will be around the middle of the class, the job opportunities are vastly different comming from Minnesota than a "better" school. Hell, even comming from UCLA compared to a "better" school and Georgetown compared to a "better" school.. and so up the ladder it goes.

And, although contracts may be the same wherever you go, don't forget that half your learning is through your classmates, thanks to the socratic method. How intelligent your fellow classmates are is, thus, important.
