Useful for people choosing between t14 (more rankings)

Postby lulz » Fri Dec 21, 2012 2:08 pm

Article on Above the Law with a link to a paper you can download that ranks top faculties (as determined by USNWR) by citations using a different methodology than the Leiter rankings.

Figured this was useful for people deciding between top schools, especially HYSCCN.

lol...I assure you this does not matter. "Relevance" does not equate to quality.

I'm not Bryan Garner, but I think you need a "that" in the first sentence. As for the second sentence, it's awkward. I can't put my finger on the actual grammatical error, but "Does not equate to" is definitely awkward.

I don't want to white knight, but his postings are gramatically correct. You, on the other hand, do have a gramatically incorrect sentence.

1. http://www.askamathematician.com/2009/1 ... l-greater/

"i can assure you [...] mine....etc."...while you can throw in the "that" without changing the meaning, it is not necessary. the english language is a thing of beauty.

2. --LinkRemoved-- (note first and second example. try to figure it out, you know, socratic method and all)

3. try not to correct or attempt to correct grammar online on a message board, nothing good comes out of it

You sound really mad. Can I add one?

4. Don't get so mad on an online forum; it makes you look childish/immature. Also I think the problem with your sentence was that no one was claiming that relevance equated to quailty, but rather that it was an indicator of quality. That caused me, at least, to read the word "equates" as an incorrect synonym for "indicates." Now I see what bothered me about your sentence was word choice and not grammatical structure. My apologies. Please don't bother trying to make my response look silly either; we both (or all three of us, I guess)look like idiots for having this "discussion" in the first place.

This is what I get for being bored at work.
Edit: on my phone at work. Auto-correct/difficulty proof-reading/don't care in the first place

FWIW, one of the professors in the top 10 on the second list is one of the worst I've had in five semesters of law school.

This is unsurprising. There is very little correlation between research quality and teaching quality.
