Least discussed T14 on TLS?

Postby gbpackerbacker » Thu Dec 16, 2010 5:12 pm

I have been thinking about which school in the T14 gets talked about the least on here. It has gotta be Chicago... Thoughts? Rankings by amount of discussion?

i have to second Duke. Then penn and cornell and maybe even yale if you dont count brief comments n it being the best law school.

chicago was really popular last cycle and it made a rankings move. also the ccn talk is always around the corner.

Btw, why is 14 the magic number of schools included in the notorious T-14?

Why isn't it T-20?

This arbitrary pro-14 bias will not stand.

You know what I mean.

Also, rankings would be more effective if they were regionally based, i.e. "Top 5 LS's in this particular region" and so on.

I oftentimes forget that Cornell is part of the T14. It seems like Cornell only comes up when discussing a person who has barely T14 GPA and LSAT, since having a high one of either results in an "ED to UVA" response.

It has to do with the historical US News Rankings. The current t14 and UCLA are the only schools ever to be ranked in the top 14 since the inception of the US News rankings in 1987.

I think this method of reasoning/logic involves the word "circular," right?

I dunno. There's a thread about CCN on here just about daily.

My vote is for Penn.

Re Cornell people - We're not talking about schools in the t14 that get no love, Cornell gets ragged on CONSTANTLY which makes it discussed. Penn is often left by the wayside.

That's wrong.

T14 were the only one's to ever be ranked in the top 10.

What are you talking about...

Something has been a certain way for a really long time without change ---> People develop a moniker to distinguish that thing from other things, and recognize the fact that it has been the same way for a really long time.

edit: you're correct. Texas was 11 in 1987.

Just because what you said is right (which it is) doesn't mean what I said is wrong (which it isn't).


This is a T15 way to respond.
