I'm not saying it's not a good thing to be good and likable but I'm saying that that alone will not cut it. Your school will matter a lot... There are a lot of likable people who go higher schools....
Also, I didn't say that "have absolutely no job prospects"... And I didn't say graduates from those schools will not have jobs but you need to see what kind of jobs those are and how representative your friends are of the total pool of graduates. A few success stories don't mean the school is doing great.
Moreover, job prospects for a law students imply a good job in the legal field. Otherwise why go to law school to end up taking any job; and so in that sense, yes, I stand by my comments on both schools.
By the way, it's not disrecptpful to point out unpleasant truths...
Look at their LST report:https://www.lstreports.com/schools/mitc ... line/jobs/
And examine the data.. Isn't it weird that the law school doesn't know what kind positions their graduates have in a firm (whether attorney or paralegal, or assistant, etc)? Or their salaries? It's all in the report... Research how many return to their previous jobs, etc etc etc. You'll have to do some digging.
On your comment, that my advice makes want to do the opposite. I would say, I was not trying to make you do anything. You posted a question and I am giving you an opinion plus some data. Do what you want. But be aware of making subjective judgments. That's all....

Sorry 'mnlawgirl' but that sounds very trite. Where you go will matter a lot in terms of fulfilling your career aspirations stated above or at least finding a decent job... How does being a good and likable person play a role here? More importantly, what does that even have to do with your law school choice? I will agree with you that it is indeed not the right mindset when you are trying to determine where to go...
Also, "admin lawyer," I really must say it.. Too many law graduates regret going to law school.

People who paid full tuition at lower ranked schools were not at happy. However, nobody really regrets ever going to law school because following your dreams is what's most important.
Thanks for that, I appreciate it. I think I will go for something in the middle. I am more interested in following my dreams and being a good person than being the person with the best credentials. Maybe that's not the right mindset, but being a good and likable person matters to me.
Being good and likable plays a role in the interview process I would say, and probably just in the world. To say that people have absolutely no job prospects coming from Mitchell Hamline and UST seems a bit dramatic and disrespectful. I know plenty of graduates from all 3 schools that are able to work and live in Minneapolis and greater Minnesota. Thanks though for your advice. It makes me want to do the opposite!
