The more I read stuff like this the more I like my little Northern Plains state-owned law school on the priarie.
The one that is always 3rd of 4th tier in the rankings that turns out to be a major feeder school for federal judicial clerkships.
It's also the one in a 125 year old building that doesn't have enough bathrooms. We're saving up.
I sure do love these simple little schools from nowhere. They sure turn out some good lawyers too.

When choosing a law school, prospects should be encouraged to look beyond the "name brand," especially in these bad times. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get this advice and took this rout--choosing to go to a state school, which cost 1/4 the price of the more prestigious 1st tier school I was also accepted into. This gave me FREEDOM! Freedom from overwhelming debt obligations, freedom to choose any practice area I wanted, and freedom to choose a firm that met my requirements and not just my financial needs. Perhaps U.S. News & World Report should add another column in its rankings next to average LSAT score and that's average debt each student has when they graduate. That might open some eyes and help students make more informed decisions.
