Tim: Seriously? How dumb are you? Do you realize that Regent is an unranked, festering, neoconservative craphole that provides less than a 50% chance of actually getting a job as a lawyer upon graduation?
Sally: Not only that, but you do realize it was founded by Pat Robertson, right? You know, the guy who blamed the Haiti earthquake on a pact they made with the devil, and agreed with Jerry Falwell that pagans, gays, feminists, and abortion supporters were responsible for 9-11?
Joe: Ha! Nah, I'm just messing with you guys. Seriously, why would anyone go to Regent?
Just under half of Regent's graduates enter private practice, but a large portion of its graduates place in government positions in the Washington, D.C. market. Monica Goodling, the subject of the controversial 2006 U.S. Attorney's dismissals, and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell are graduates of Regent Law.
The law school's faculty is comprised of nationally renowned legal scholars educated at Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Virginia, Georgetown, Duke, and Texas, among others. Having faculty members from such top legal institution is not common at most lower tier law schools. Some of the most notable faculty include former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and nationally recognized Evidence Law expert Prof. James J. Duane.
Tim: Obviously go to Yale.
Sally: Just go to the highest ranked school.
Joe: I'm going to visit them, meet the professors, and see what I like.
(Three weeks later...)
Joe: I'm going to Regent. The professors are the same quality as Virginia, the people are more laid back than at Yale, the people aren't as viciously competitive like at Duke, and it's fifteen minutes from the beach.
