general grouping based on USNWR.

On TLS generally uses

T14: Yale-Georgetown
T1: Top 50
TT: Top 100
TTT: Top 150
TTTT:Top 200

Specific USNWR are shit though. They are not reflective of job prospects. Texas Tech > American

Not much. It's generally HYS > Rest of T14 > Regional flagship if you want to practice in that region > Everything else. TLS spends a ton of time bickering about mini-tiers within the rest of the T14, but it's generally nonsense.
