Why isn't the original post getting updated? I thought the point was to have everything in one place, and not scattered through countless pages.

Sorry if this has already been answered, and forgive my ignorance, but what is JDU?

JDU = JD underground.
Bunch of people who are unhappy with job prospects and schooling... They complain a bunch. Some of the information is helpful though. Think of it as the Yin to TLS’s Yang. TLS is overly optimistic and JDU is overly pessimistic. They are fox news and we are all the other news channels except MSNBC.

AutoAdmit would be MSNBC, just a bunch of weirdness.

T14 schools minus Georgetown: Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, NYU, Michigan, Virginia, Penn, Berkeley, Duke, Northwestern, and Cornell.

Some posters started using T12 after this year's rankings came out, which excludes Cornell.

Vault 10 and Vault 100. They rank firms rather than law schools.


They rank firms based on prestige as determined by a poll of lawyers at other firms. This is in contrast to the NLJ250 which, as far as I know, is just a list of the 250 largest firms in the country.

Well, I'm out.

Hope you all enjoy filling up your Deans' pockets. In three years, 99% of you will remember this and wish you had taken my advice.

No. Enrique was fighting with people in a different thread. He tried ending it, but posted it to this thread by mistake. Was letting him know
