Can't believe W&L cost me a UVA tee and a date with Spivey. I am going to burn that school to the ground.

I spent days agonizing over whether to including W&L or U. Washington. I knew one of the Washingtons would be in that final spot, but I chose the wrong Washington. I blame everyone who submitted before me. That's what I get for following the hivemind.

Eric Decker does not have Hollywood looks compared to the great Travis Fimmel. Travis Fimmel was a Calvin Klein underwear model who was so attractive that when he was on a billboard in the UK the legend goes women drivers were sometimes more distracted and likely to cause accidents.

Decker is a handsome guy but because he is a football player he is considered very very good looking. He is still not Travis Fimmel.

If you do so, W&L will have to spend major $$$ on rebuilding the school, thus pushing its per-student spending through the roof, which in turn will return it to the rarefied air of T30 status.

On a slightly more serious note, you probably shouldn't joke about burning schools down.


Can you at least unquote or unbold me then? I don't want W&L to see that and reject me.

Done. For the record, I wasn't worried about W&L rejecting you. I was thinking about that guy who made a joke on autoadmit about shooting people at Hastings. Someone at Hastings called the FBI, who tracked the guy down. Turned out he was a Boalt student; his legal career came to an abrupt end as a result of the joke:

for example, if a school has dropped from low 20's to mid 30's in the past half-decade, does that indicate an actual drop in prestige that should affect 0L desireability, or are even trends as irrelevant as the specific yearly rankings, themselves.


Doesn't really matter. When you get out of the T14, region and job placement trump ranking. Figure out where you want to practice, and go to the best school in that region for as little as possible. If that means going to #50 over #25 then so be it.
