2014 USNWR T25 Prediction Contest (Winners Announced)

Postby North » Thu Feb 21, 2013 11:34 am

The USNWR Law School Rankings are absolutely useless and nobody cares about them. So lets put this year's list to better use. ITT: You predict USNWR's T25, I compile your entries, and whoever's closest when they're released wins their choice of a prize (read: stuff I find in my house). Serious business discussion about the rankings and this year's adjustment in methodology is taking place here. Per Robert Morse, entries are due before March 12th. If you don't want to play, I encourage you to troll instead (just no obvious troll entries, please) (lol, Sunny). If there's little/no interest, I'll kill it. NBD.

Note: You must have at least 100 posts to play (unless you have a tar that I like). Sorry, lurkers.

Here's how it works

    1. Here are last year's rankings. Reference that as you order the schools in your entry.
    2. Put your entry into the Submission Format (provided below).
    3. Post it ITT before March 12th.
    4. When the rankings are released, I'll grade everyone's submission according to The Rules for Grading (posted below).
    5. I'll rank the submissions from most to least accurate.
    6. The winner gets to pick one of The Prizes (posted below) and I'll mail it to him or her.

    The Submission Format

      Save me time by putting your entry into this format:

        _1. SCHOOL
        _2. SCHOOL
        _3. SCHOOL
        _4. SCHOOL
        _5. SCHOOL
        _6. SCHOOL
        _7. SCHOOL
        _8. SCHOOL
        _9. SCHOOL
        10. SCHOOL
        11. SCHOOL
        12. SCHOOL
        13. SCHOOL
        14. SCHOOL
        15. SCHOOL
        16. SCHOOL
        17. SCHOOL
        18. SCHOOL
        19. SCHOOL
        20. SCHOOL
        21. SCHOOL
        22. SCHOOL
        23. SCHOOL
        24. SCHOOL
        25. SCHOOL

      Here's the code. Copy and paste this into your submission post. Replace the stuff in all-caps with your name and predictions.

      Code: Select all

      [list]
      [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]1.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]2.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]3.[/b] SCHOOL

      [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]9.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]10.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]11.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]12.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]13.[/b] SCHOOL

      [b]16.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]17.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]18.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]19.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]20.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]21.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]22.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]23.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]24.[/b] SCHOOL
      [b]25.[/b] SCHOOL
      [/list]

      Regarding the format of ties

      Note: There can't be a tie at #25 because it would mess up scoring. So, if you think there'll be a tie at #25, just pick your favorite. Props to Crowing for noticing the problem.

        There will probably be a few ties. How do you handle that when making your prediction? White out. For example, say you expect there to be a tie between Penn, UVA, and Berkeley for #7. Here's what you should do:

          Step 1:
            Starting at #7, type them in.
            Tie Example wrote:_6. SCHOOL
            _7. Penn
            _8. UVA
            _9. Berk
            10. SCHOOL
            11. SCHOOL
          Step 2:
            White out the numbers below #7 up to the end of the tie.
            Tie Example wrote:_6. SCHOOL
            _7. Penn
            _8. UVA
            _9. Berk
            10. SCHOOL
            11. SCHOOL

            Here's what the code would look like:

            Code: Select all

            [quote="Tie Example"][b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]6.[/b] SCHOOL
            [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color]7.[/b] Penn
            [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color][color=#FFFFFF]8.[/color][/b] UVA
            [b][color=#FFFFFF]_[/color][color=#FFFFFF]9.[/color][/b] Berk
            [b]10.[/b] SCHOOL
            [b]11.[/b] SCHOOL
            [/quote][/list]

    The Rules for Grading

      Everyone starts off with 100 points. A penalty equal to the difference between a school's USNWR rank and its rank in your submission will be assessed for each incorrectly placed school. If such a penalty is assessed for an incorrectly placed T14 school, it will be doubled.

    The Prizes

      There are three to choose from. They all suck, but whatever. Winner gets to pick.


      Prize #1: Bag of Pistachios

      Image

      Prize #2: Little Scallion Plant from my Garden

      Image
      (Actual picture coming when I get home (unless I keep forgetting...))

      Prize #3: Pepper Sauce made from stuff I grew

      Image



Submissions will be compiled in the post below the OP, and the winner and ranking of entries will be announced in the post below that. Only funny troll entries will be included. If you have any ideas to make this better/less stupid/more fun, let me know ITT.

Ranking your Rankings

I did some amateur (read: probably wrong and misleading) statistical analysis on the first 28 (well, 27, because Sunny's just messed things up and LRGhost didn't make it in time) submissions. If you want to play around with the numbers, here is the spreadsheet I made. You should be able to download it and put it into Excel, but I'm not totally sure how GoogleDrive is different from GoogleDocs yet. Note that the ones that go all the way to #25 get a little janky after UMinn because not everyone included every school thereafter in the T25. Anyway, here are a few:

    Ranked according to the average rank assigned by TLSers (ROUNDED)

      _1. Yale
      _2. Harvard
      _3. Stanford
      _4. Columbia
      _5. Chicago
      _6. NYU
      _7. Penn
      _8. Berkeley
      _9. Virginia
      10. Michigan
      11. Duke
      12. Northwestern
      13. Cornell
      14. Georgetown
      15. UCLA
      16. Texas
      17. Vanderbilt
      18. USC
      19. UMinn
      20. GWU
      21. WUSTL
      22. Notre Dame
      23. Emory
      24. U Washington
      25. W&L
      25. ASU

    Ranked according to the average rank assigned by TLSers (NOT ROUNDED)

      _1. Yale
      _2. Harvard
      _3. Stanford
      _4. Columbia
      _5. Chicago
      _6. NYU
      _7. Penn
      _8. Virginia
      _9. Berkekey
      10. Michigan
      11. Duke
      12. Northwestern
      13. Cornell
      14. Georgetown
      15. UCLA
      16. Texas
      17. Vanderbilt
      18. USC
      19. UMinn
      20. GWU
      21. WUSTL
      22. Notre Dame
      23. Emory
      24. ASU
      25. U Washington

And now here are some other things Excel told me. I think the standard deviation is really interesting. Y'all really aren't sure where to put UVA, are you?

    Median School Rank
      Yale: 1
      Stanford: 2
      Harvard: 2
      Columbia: 4
      Chicago: 5
      NYU: 6
      Penn: 7
      Berkeley: 8
      Virginia: 8
      Michigan: 10
      Duke: 11
      Northwestern: 12
      Cornell: 13
      Georgetown: 14
      UCLA: 15
      Texas: 16
      Vanderbilt: 17
      USC: 18
      UMinn: 20

    Mode School Rank
      Yale: 1
      Stanford: 2
      Harvard: 2
      Columbia: 4
      Chicago: 5
      NYU: 6
      Penn: 7
      Virginia: 8
      Berkeley: 9 (change)
      Michigan: 10
      Duke: 11
      Northwestern: 12
      Cornell: 13
      Georgetown: 14
      UCLA: 15
      Texas: 15 (change)
      Vanderbilt: 17
      USC: 18
      UMinn: 20

    Standard Deviation of School Rank
    (Average = 0.785923; Above Average Uncertainty vs. Below Average Uncertainty)

    Most Certain
      Yale: 0.1924
      Cornell: 0.3620
      NYU: 0.4369
      Columbia: 0.4560
      Stanford: 0.5091
      Harvard: 0.5091
      Georgetown: 0.6155
      Penn: 0.6751
      UMinn: 0.7337
      Chicago: 0.8077
      Northwestern: 0.8439
      Vanderbilt: 0.8931
      Berkeley: 0.9120
      Texas: 0.9607
      USC: 1.0741
      Duke: 1.0794
      UCLA: 1.2206
      Michigan: 1.2821
      Virginia: 1.3681
    Least Certain

I don't want to mail my pistachios to some rando no-tar. Lets see what you got bro. Need some participation before the hate gets to me and I take it out back.
