I know a bunch of people that have abandoned law school if they didnt get accepted into a T20 school.

I think thats short sighted. Most successful attorneys became successful from hard work and building a strong law practice, not from graduating from a T-20 law school.

If this was an LSAT problem, say logical reasoning, then it would go something like this"

Only T-20 law school grads are successful and no >T20 law school grads are successful.

I bet that statement can be proved wrong in many ways.

I think thats so stupid. Your entire career and future is not dependent on where you went to law school. Experience and skill set should account for something....

Lets qualify that statement. High school is important to get into a good college. Your undergrad is important to get into a good advanced studies school e.g. law school and graduating from a good law school is important in order to get a good job.

However, most lawyers that start out at big firms only see part of a transaction while attorneys at small firms get experience on a matter from start to finish.

In the end it all works out. Either you start at a law firm or you start at a small firm and work your way up.

Not everyone can start at the top.
