Seriously. They are now a national school as opposed to a regional school now that they are in the T14. Also way more employers will come to OCI.

I think the idea of T14 recognized anywhere but anything else is regional is total crap. I dont know where to draw the line, if there is a line at all, but this viewpoint seems ridiculous.


Now you're getting it.

Yeah it really sucks because Georgia firms only recruit at T30 schools.


Dude we get it.


Rad Law's humor strikes me deeply, because while it is obviously both a clever and original contribution to top-law-schools.com, it is also piercingly sarcastic in a manner that strikes at real truth and makes me reconsider my previous assumptions. I used to think that Georgia firms REALLY DID only recruit at the T30. Only now, after Rad Law's biting foray into lampoon, do I realize what a fool I was. Thanks Rad Law! Hopefully you will continue recycling the same comedic motif over, and over and over again. You'll save so many more fools like me!

Why are they saying that Penn moved up a spot? Weren't they tied for #7 last year with Berkeley?

Does anyone know the scores that the T13 received? It says in an article that G-town and UT both received 77 and every school above received more than 80. I simply want to see how the schools' scores changed in relation to one another. Thanks.

Gosh, I sure hope I'm credible enough for you. Should I forward my tax returns? I just want to make sure you're satisfied with the quality of my answers.

Thank you.

77 - 80 - 82 - 83 - 85 - 85 - 86 - 86.

*Disparity is starting to show among the lower "T14"

*I am surprised that UM made the jump and am surprised that UVA widened its margin over DOOK

*Here is to hoping that Boalt continues to fall so DOOK can be a true T10 :)

If you go to: http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandr ... w-rankings and hover your mouse over the rank of a school, you'll see their score listed as "[x] out of 100" where x is the school's score.


Wow. Looking at some of these numbers really drives home the lack of significant difference between some of these schools, especially as you go down further and further on the list. #84 is 45/100 and #95 is 44/100. So, there is virtually no difference. Most people here recognize that, but a lot of people out there surely choose a school because it is 11 spots higher than another one, even though, by USNWR's own methodology, they are virtually equivalent.

Seriously. They are now a national school as opposed to a regional school now that they are in the T14. Also way more employers will come to OCI.


I don't care to speak for anything substantive coming from rankings. However, fwiw, being tied with G'Town is great news for the school. I'm a Texan and remain partial to UT so forgive me.
