Tiers are dumb.

I agree that tiers are dumb. I do think, though, that Penn has a slightly better reputation than Cornell among employers, just as CLS has a slightly better reputation than Penn. These differences aren't going to have a big impact on aggregate employment numbers, but I think they do have an effect at the margins. It's sensible to take these differences into account if cost is roughly equal. (I understand, Clem, that you aren't saying anything different.)

You don't have to advocate for some kind of articulated stable-tier understanding of top schools in order to say Penn is better than Cornell. It's just better, regardless of whether tiers are a thing. Is Penn worth $200k more? Of course not. But it's worth something more.
