I don't know I see a lot of people on here saying Chicago is a "mid" or "lower" top 14 along with Penn. The only harsh cutoff that really makes sense is top 3 and Cornell GULC.

For example Stanford is not hands down better than Columbia for NYC biglaw).




I agree. I think after these major distinctions, it begins to depend on what/where you have in mind.

The Cornell hate on TLS is not warranted, and GULC really isn't as bad as people here make it sound, especially if you finish above median.

I just mean that in a normal economy, the people who finished below median at Michigan could fall back on Michigan "regional biglaw" jobs, where as DC "regional" jobs did not exist. ITE you're screwed if you finish below median anyways.
