employers care about where you went to school.  this is true in medicine or law.
This is most true for first job. after that experience is most important. lawyers dont win cases bec they went to a T14 school.
The reasons rankings dont matter in med school is bec the pool of med students is so small compared to law students there are more opportunities for jobs

The job market must really be awful.  I received two resumes this week from experienced candidates willing to take a $100k paycut - and these are people with a current job.

I'm confused. Why would someone WITH a job be actively looking for a job that earns a $100k less than he or she is currently making?

I suspect that they feel that cutbacks are imminent.

and what sort of job are you offering? Perhaps they are looking to cut back on hours?

It's a legal tax position in a specialized area (in-house).  The applicants were in-house as well.

Depends on the law job, if you want BIGLAW, even ten years out, the law school you went to is very important.

For the right price, I'd be happy to endorse it and say that I took it and it is what made me successful.

No, just saw it today for first time.

Good idea to make one targeted for BTL's, since prob most of us go in concerned that we're behind. If I don't like law firm life, maybe I'll start one myself :)
