all in good fun
but the movie was supposed to be set at chicago and harvard snatched it up trying to use lay prestige to distract people from the diluted faculty. the only reason harvard is ranked so high is lay prestige, yale because all the peer reputation scorers went there for law school, stanford because it benefits from california's low bar passage rate (did you know US News punishes schools in states with easy exams like Illinois?!), and columbia--well, it's just a matter of time before chicago leaps over them. based on my quick number crunching, i'd say about about 80% chance it leaps over CLS next year, 5% it leaps over SLS and HLS.
