זה כלל גדול: You cannot choose a law school (or choose law school) unless you have lurked on top-law-schools.com (from which I am banned, many times over) for several months. ואידך פירושא.

Yeah, but that ranking is retarded. I don't care what the number of NLJ 250 lawyers is,  you cannot rank Yale number 14 and be taken seriously. If you are at the bottom of your class at Yale, you will still be fawned over by top firms. If you are at the bottom of the class at Penn (their number 1), you will have a serious employment problem.

It likely ignores public service, and clerkships.

You can't complain about purim posts.

I think the percentages are irrelevant. The real data is what percentage of job applications were accepted. What percentage got their first choice job, and what percentage didn't get a job at all.

OP stated that he/she already made the decision to go to law school. Let's focus on pros and cons of specific schools, not a takedown of law schools in general. For that there is the internet.
How do you get a group of lawyers to smile for a picture?

 Most "yeshiva guys" (yeshiva is being used generically here) pretty much have two options if they want to attend graduate school; business school or law school. Both of those used to be excellent choices no matter where an individual went to school and now they (and their respective industries) are all plagued by saturation. There are too many law and b-school graduates for the market to bear. That doesn't mean that one should no longer go to graduate school, just that the "pot of gold" at the end is not as sure and decisions need to be made more pragmatically and with a lower baseline.
