As far as law school discussion and information on firms (bonuses,events,billables) etc XOXO is right up there with JDUnderground

You just need to sift through the crap to find info

You should probably add FTW. Maybe Ding also. I know that's not an abb. but you have troll and flame up there. How about Boalt = Berkeley?

T1 - Tier one schools according to USNWR (1-50)
T2 - Tier 2 (50-104)
T3 - Tier 3 (105-139)
T4 - Tier 4 (the rest)
T5 - Top 5
T14 - The top 14 schools

This is just confusing.

I say we change this to the following:

1T - first tier
2T - second tier
3T - third tier
4T - fourth tier
T3 - top 3
T6 - top 6
T10 - top 10
T14 - top 14
T25 - top 25

Who's with me?

I feel like people are still going to be calling it boalt for awhile.

I say we change this to the following:


good luck with that

I'm trying to limit the list by the most common used abbreviations/acronyms and one's that specifically pertain to law school... if we added every internet abbreviation the list would go on forever.

If you think one of the above is used on this site frequently though, let me know and I'll add it.

Right...

I think TM should mean TestMasters, since it pertains to law school more than The Mongoose does, not to say I don't like his style ;)

Well, the question was "Who's with me?"--not "Who's not with me?" or "What do you say, M20009?".
