Dear TLS: please get over yourself. Rankings don't mean shit. Employers don't care, clients don't care, only your momma and pretentious friend from (insert Ivy league) care! Please get over your vault rankings, your NLJ 250, and US New rankings. NONE of them mean anything. The law might be a prestige-whoring industry, but so is I-Banking, Consulting, and many others. It is what it is. But none of it means anything. So WUSTL is ranked 23, who cares. What does that have to do with the price of rice in China? What exactly does going to a school ranked 15 - 25 get you that a school ranked 45-65 get you?[/quote]


Someone goes to WUSTL...[/quote]

Nah, I don't go to WUSTL.....But it doesn't matter where I go, cause I certainly found my paid summer internship on my own....#winning

For four straight years (2000 to 2003) the top 3 USNWR rankings were Y/S/H. This year’s shift back to Y/S/H is nothing extraordinary.

Going into the way-back time machine. In ’87 the T-14 included UCLA and not Cornell, also in ’87 Harvard was #1. After ’87 Yale has consistently been #1 and the T-14 became locked (with the onetime UT addition). To me, this is excessively bizarre, but it does exhibit an elitism that is unparalleled.

In ’90 when you were sucking on a fudgesicle: #1 Yale; #2 Chicago; #3 Stanford; #4 Columbia; #5 Harvard.

With some minor variations, the rankings remind me of watching Groundhog Day.

Anyone who goes to Havard Law is fucked; that school is clearly in decline.

Romo gives great advice and is usually not a dick. Lay off.
