It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not only is it Halloween, the day when the nation celebrates the patron saint of skanky costumes, but we’ve also got some law school rankings that are all too appropriate given the holiday. Today, we give unto you the GraduatePrograms.com social life rankings, a mystical, magical list that will guide prospective law students in their quest to attend the school where they’ll be surrounded by the least socially awkward classmates for three years of their lives.
GraduatePrograms ranked the top 25 student-rated law schools, as well as the best law schools for career support, financial aid, and quality of network, but we’re focusing on the social life rankings. Why? At this point, it’s a given that you’re going to have some difficulty finding a job and paying down your loans when you graduate. It’s the connections you make during law school that will help you get through the tough times you’ll face later on.
So without any further delay, here are the law schools where you’ll be able to have the best social life — otherwise known as the law schools where you’ll be able to file endless motions to party…
GraduateProgram’s results were based on surveys completed by students (including those currently enrolled and recent graduates) from more than 150 accredited law schools across the United States. The rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012, to September 30, 2013. For the purposes of this category, “social life” is defined as how easy it is for students to meet people, make friends, or date.
When trapped in a habitat among gunners and people who get off on listening to themselves speak, it’s refreshing to learn that there may be schools that make it easier for human beings to commit section-cest, imbibe copious amounts of alcohol, and otherwise interact with each other outside of a classroom.
Where can you study and party at the same time? Here are the top five law schools for Best Social Life:
Unlike last time around, when schools like Stanford and Boalt Hall somehow found their way into the top five, from top to bottom, this list actually makes sense. Each law school’s affiliated undergraduate program has been considered one of the best party schools in the nation by either the Princeton Review or Playboy. Come on, not even the nerdiest of law students could suck the fun out of the air at schools like these.
Did your alma mater make the cut? Have at it in the comments, folks.
