Have fun with this thread in my absense, but please do try to get it back on topic, if at all possible. To those who take all this a bit too seriously, maybe you should get out of the house for a while. Some of you sound like you desperately need to hit the town. I'd even buy you all a shot if I could, even Kobe.
Honestly... it sounds like you're the one who is taking this too seriously.
People are not attacking lower ranked schools or discussing lower ranked schools, they're attacking YOU.
When you say things like:

There's a lot of wrong involved in the idea as well as practice of sitting around waiting for a "dream job" instead of getting to work. This is going to sound like a stereotype, but the TTT guy/gal would probably opt to get to work in this figurative example. (instead of waiting around for dream job)
Firms probably understand this dynamic quite well. Who would you hire? The guy/gal used to relying on outdated notions of "ranking" and "prestige" or the undervalued asset? If that TTT graduated near the top of their class and exhibited some special savvy which related to the type of law my firm specialized in AND would be elated for a salary that the former T-14 might scoff at, well, I know who I'd hire.
Using stereotypes to attack other stereotypes is not a sound argument and most of your threads follow this trend.
