These concepts are inextricably linked. Your social class is determined by the lay prestige of the insititution(s) at which you studied. Money and job outcomes are secondary. You can't buy class.

I'm not sure if you're serious, but I'll bite. Prestige is marginally based on employment statistics. Harvard Law produces presidents, Attorney Generals, Supreme Court Justices, U.S. Representatives, and Senators. UVA and Duke can't even compete in those regards. Combined they have 2 SCOTUS justices (one of whom didn't even graduate UVA and the other served on the court over 70 years ago), two presidents (Wilson didn't even graduate from UVA Law, and Nixon resigned as to not get impeached), and a few Reps./Senators I imagine, but those are few in number compared to Harvard. Plus, Harvard Law gets the added bonus of the prestige produced by the Harvard UG (where some of the smartest/wealthiest students have gone for 100s of years), and Harvard Grad (where some of the most preeminent scholars, doctors, and business people have gone). UVA and Duke have what? Strong graduate history programs, okay business schools, and the latter has a good medical school. That's about it. Harvard Law also gets a ton of great PI/Gov't jobs that are prestigious that don't fit inside the really limited (and thus dumb) BL + FC box that TLS salivates over.

I think it's pretty clear why everyone views Harvard as objectively better, regardless of what a couple points on BL + FC employment percentages say.


the lay prestige meter, which is the only thing that matters, reads as follows:

Harvard >>> Duke > NYU > UVA


Lol NYU has 0 lay prestige. NYU has the least lay prestige out of the T13 IMO

I agree NYU has low lay prestige, but it should beat at least Chicago, Virginia, Berkeley, and maybe Penn (State?).


Definitely doesn't beat Berkeley (which has huge lay prestige) or Chicago (which has pretty significant lay prestige).


Of those schools, the lay prestige meter reads as follows:
berk>chicago>NYU>Penn>UVA... Incidentally, Michigan would be last among the t13.

This is not my opinion; I have polled a representative sample of laymen.


We're having the dumbest conversation ever but I love it. My dad is very average/mediocre and a good metric for this: I told him I really wanted NYU and he was like 'huh? why?' and then I told him that Penn waitlisted me and I was bummed and he was like 'huh? who?' but when I said I got into Cornell with a fat scholly he was like 'OMG THEY'RE AMAZING YOU SHOULD GO'. I mean I'm happy with it and all but...lol

PS I totally agree with your rigorously crafted lay ranking system

while we're talkin' about pops, my father was more impressed with NYU than Duke, but he texted me about gulc's demise the day it happened, so he's a bit of a rank slut

my mother likes duke more because I'm from the south and shes in the medical field

I like how the Upper Midwest's version of Hastings keeps getting ranked in the low 20s for some reason.

Assuming you're serious, no chance at all.


Why though? Their BL+Clerk is a good bit higher. Even ud you include PI and Gov they're just like equal. Why is NYU even regarded more highly?


How are Duke and NYU "equal" in PI/gov placement?

NYU has a lower BL+FC number because a very large number of people go into PI.


If you add BL+FC+PI+Gov Duke and NYU are very close. I don't remember the exact #s



No. Duke sends maybe 5% of its class into PI/gov each year. NYU sends 18-20%. There's only a 3% difference in BL/FC numbers, and NYU has over twice as many students.

Duke's a great school. But it's not going to displace NYU because of BL/FC placement. NYU has always had lower biglaw placement numbers because of PI.


To follow up on this, only 369 members of the Class of 2018 participated in EIW (OCI). There were 485 total graduates of the Class of 2016. Assuming the flood of transfers remains steady each year, this means ~120 NYU students do not participate in OCI every year.

I have no idea WTF these 120 people are thinking, but that's a significant proportion of NYU (approximately 25 percent) that doesn't want to get anywhere near biglaw.

Needs to fix the order. NYU should be below Stanford and Cornell. Also needs a wider gap between WUSTL and Texas :lol:

These concepts are inextricably linked. Your social class is determined by the lay prestige of the insititution(s) at which you studied. Money and job outcomes are secondary. You can't buy class.

To follow up on this, only 369 members of the Class of 2018 participated in EIW (OCI). There were 485 total graduates of the Class of 2016. Assuming the flood of transfers remains steady each year, this means ~120 NYU students do not participate in OCI every year.

I have no idea WTF these 120 people are thinking, but that's a significant proportion of NYU (approximately 25 percent) that doesn't want to get anywhere near biglaw.


How do you know they didn't just shrink class size?


The incoming class was 426 for C/O 2018 with 43 transfers while 5 transferred out (with 8 "other" attrition) for 456 if there's no other attrition. Class size did go down, but that's still 19% or 87 people who didn't do OCI.

FYI this is closer than the initial number, but still a tiny bit off: 31 BL +7 fed clerks = 38/184 = 20.7% [12.3%] [+8.4%]

Biglaw is 16 + 9 + 5 = 30

Edit: there is 1 person who is "full time, short term" which does not count for biglaw statistics
