Good question. I'm looking at the actual assigned point values, and the spread between Cornell and USC is minuscule. We're basically talking about statistical noise here. For all intents and purposes, we're in a T22 world now.
Once you go past the T14 you go off a cliff in terms of employment. Say what you want about GULC but they have a huge class each year, and their numbers are still much better than the rest. UTers, UCLAers, etc. can cry all they want but the fact remains that they don't even begin to threaten the T14 when it comes to employment.
UT, UCLA, USC, etc. are nothing more than strong regionals/state flagships in states with strong markets. No one in Florida will care about your UT degree anymore than someone in Texas will care about your USC degree, and so on...
