How about Albany?  Solid network and as a 3L recently posted, 88% bar passage last year.

I personally think that Drake has a lot of potential over the coming years given the focus it has on its mission and its continuing work to improve itself and its faculty each and every year.  Then again, maybe just regional bias because I am a midwesterner.

I'll chime in with Marquette.  Having just visited, I was very impressed with everything about the school with the exception of the actual building.  It's pretty cramped in there, but at the same time, it had a really nice lived-in feel that I don't get with some of the stark and imposing new law school buildings around.  It felt like you could claim your own comfy corner, hunker down, and study for hours, and I like that.

Students were all paying attention in class (didn't see anyone surfing the internet during lecture), and they even answered the questions correctly when called on.  Not too shabby. :)

There's an associate who went to Syracuse at my firm here in San Francisco. But he's a silver spooner, so who knows what kind of connections (if any) he had...

I did my UG at Texas Tech and their law school is very well connected to the DFW area.  Tech's law school is young, but has a good reputation in the state.  There is talk every year about it coming close to the 2nd tier.  Good luck to you.

I think Syracuse was 95 in 2006 and 97 in 2005.  I can't find the original article I read this from, but here are the 2006 rankings on LSD: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,29571.0.html
