Do Specialty Rankings Matter?

Postby enron123 » Tue Mar 15, 2011 2:30 pm

I'm confused about what these are supposed to mean. Baylor rules Trial and Advocacy but obviously I should go to UT right? Does anyone understand the point of them?

They matter as much as the US News rankings.

No. Unless tax. Then NYU/UF/Gtown, the rest doesn't matter.

I know Tax LLMs are a different animal. I just thought that was funny considering the thread full of No quotes.

I think what people mean is that they matter less than the already arbitrary rankings (beyond T13 of course). So that means they are the smallest possible unit of matter. They don't matter. I wish they did - I'd plan on rubbing how awesome my legal writing is into a hiring partner's face, in writing.

Fred, everything you say sounds true because you're pointing at me. It definitely worked when you convinced me to buy the whole Tom Emanski training series as a kid.

It's sad that pointing means more than back, to back, to back AAU championships... :(

Those back to back to back championships were nullified by the one split second clip where a kid hitting off a tee completely misses low, nailing the tee, as the ball flutters a few feet.

So your pointing had to save the day.
