At this point, I have a list of reaches, matches, and "safeties" for schools. I partially used LSP to make these decisions, but on the "What are my chances?" forum, there are a lot of people who have much lower stats and probably won't get into any top schools. My lowest ranked safety school is #55 (USNWR rankings).
I understand that USNWR is not ALL that matters. But in reality, employers do care about where you go to school..
So my question is, would I even succeed after pouring thousands of dollars into my education if I'm not at a T14 or T20? If I end up going to this #55 school, will it be a waste?
And in case it matters, I'm trying to go into IP law.
try chicago-kent. strong chicago placement for IP but it puts you in chicago. if you aren't in the t14, you are much less likely to have a "portable" degree. outside of the t14 strong regional placing schools or strong local schools in the market in which you'd like to live are good things to think about.
