Yeah, to me that's just a really prevelant stereotype about UVA, even among laymen.  When I began telling all my friends I was going to UVA, I got a lot of "You're reallyl liberal, why the f*ck are you going to UVA?"  But to be honest, I think it was pretty even.  And I have no problem with diversity of opinion, hell, I date a conservative Republican :P

Besides, if you're a liberal, why would you go to a liberal school? So that your ideology can grow stagnant? It is difference of opinions, not sameness, that sparks learning.

Nah, I just thrive on conflict and argument. ;)

I have read more "WTF? Iowa" and "Why Iowa" and "What's the deal with Iowa" threads than I can remember. Not sure if it qualifies as hate, really, but more like skepticism. People seem to hate it because they think it doesn't deserve to be ranked higher than their schools, which usually have higher LSAT scores.

That qualifies as HATERATION....

Add to that list, BYU

CoxlessPair loves hating on the Mormons

So should I conclude that I am personally responsible for nearly 50% of all the law schools getting a raw deal on this board?

Iowa and BYU suck. Sue me.

I'd say closer to 35%

Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?

Most hated online:

1. Cooley (I think this is justified)
2. All other T3 and T4, pretty much equally ("TTT")
3. Every school lower than GW in the rankings (starting with, yes, Iowa)
4. Texas ("Hi, I'm Brian Leiter, and I teach at a T16 - make that T18 - school!")
5. All other schools right below GULC ("Go to a T14 or kill yourself!")
6. Cornell ("Ithaca?!")
7. GULC ("If you're not above the median, just drop out!")
8. Duke ("I hate their basketball team, so their law school sucks!")
9. Boalt ("They actually consider other stuff besides LSAT scores - ridiculous!")
10. Penn ("Now we have to call it T5 instead of T6!")
11. NYU ("I don't care what the rankings say, which faculty they hire, or what caliber of students they attract; my school is still better in every way!")
12. Columbia/Chicago ("Go to HYS or kill yourself!")
13. Yale ("Harvard's just as good! Really, I'd pick Harvard even if I got into Yale!")

That would leave Harvard, Stanford, Michigan, Virginia, and Northwestern...sounds about right

I thought people hated Northwestern because Chicago's so f-ing cold.

This is HILARIOUS to me....

1. Do you know where my undergad degree is from?
2. Did you discount the fact I can actually WRITE (aka Personal Statement)
3. SOFT FACTORS!!!!

I didn't mention everything I've done on LSN

Peace out, dawg.

If it was purely a numbers game, we'd just replace Adcomms with computers.

Wrong. There'd be no application process, since we'd already know which schools we were getting into. Just send the deposit check and show up in August.

Wouldn't that be anti-climatic.
