"From time to time, magazines try to seek publicity by rating some law school other than Harvard as No. 1. Take a look at the Supreme Court. Regardless of all the noise, Harvard Law School is the gold standard. All the rest is fluff. There are many very good law schools. Among the best are Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Michigan, Virginia, Stanford - not necessarily in that order but after Harvard, who cares about order?"

Lol. I read that post and thought, "Someone at Harvard has a serious inferiority complex w/r/t Yale."

From time to time? More like EVERY TIME. And yeah, you do tend to get more people in high places when you're graduating 3x as many people as that better school down the road.
