Or T10? If so, when?

14-maybe. 10? Not in my lifetime.

Vandy already has better stats then Cornell. Is it possible that it could do better than a school that it is already doing better than? Sure, I guess that's possible.

As long as we're picking on Cornell here, there are already 5 non-T14's with better medians than 3.63/167:
UCLA (3.75/168), Vandy (3.71/168), GWU FT (3.76/167), UT (3.71/167), and WUSTL (3.70/167). USC (3.60/167) is very close as well. But we can't put 20 schools in the T14, can we?

Well #1, we can - if US News can put 12 schools in the top 10, we could certainly put 20 in the top 14.
#2, we could at least start with those schools that clearly beat Cornell in both LSAT and GPA, UCLA and Vandy.
#3 I think this will actually happen if the NYC market doesn't recover.

So something like:

13 - GT
14 - Cornell, UCLA, Vandy, UT, WUSTL, GW, USC

Why stop there?

1 - Yale
2 - HSCCNBMVPDNG
14 - CUVUWGU

:P

With that, along with placement statistics, I ask why they get to stay in the T14. Is it really just USNWR not wanting to destroy the sacred 14?

I would guess that it gets a solid boost in lawyer and judge scores. They view it as a perennial T14+Ivy, they give it reviews that are probably higher than it might otherwise get.

If any school ever passed/tied G'town in the USNWR we'd all start talking about the T13, so no.

I think it will break into the t14, replacing either Cornell or GeorgeTTTTown.
