1) Suck it, Stanford

2) You tell me what order you want the schools to end up in, and I'll find you a methodology that makes it true. Just a little something for list-obsessed to remember.

Yeah, but it's hard to punk out a bunch of people who don't have to go to biglaw because they don't have to pay their loans.
