Yea, obviously there are minor splits about which people could fairly disagree in there, but USC outside of that group completely is pretty egregious esp compared to UMN.


There is a really good reason why US News did this. But you have to buy the US News Law School Compass to have access to it.

Same difference -- point is more about the tail end w/r/t USC/WUSTL v. Emory GW UMN.

We all agree, Vandy is a TTT in decline and UT will take its rightful place in the T13 when Michigan and Georgetown are finally put out of our misery.

Now lets talk about more interesting stuff, like BUT WHERE WILL UW FALL?????

I'm not so sure Emory and UMN should even be the next batch of schools. If we go based on employment outcomes, I think the next round of schools after those just mentioned is GW, BU, ND, BC, Fordham (I suppose Emory could be in this tier as well).

We couldn't since we don't have the full top 25.

We know 1-20 + 22

So MVPB is now BDPV? And DCNG is now MCNG?

Can't keep up with this.

Trying to create acronyms like that is stupid. As another poster rightfully pointed out, these minor changes in rank don't really mean anything. The general grouping remains the same.

Y
HS
CC
N
MVPDCNB
G


I wouldnt put all of MVPDCNB together considering Penn beats NYU in BL+FC and the difference in BL+FC between Columbia and Cornell is smaller than the difference between Cornell and Mich+berk

Penn, Columbia, and Cornell are big law factories.

NYU and Berkeley are the strongest PI schools in the T14 outside of YHS.

HTH

Edit: Michigan is also strong in PI, but not as good as the other two.

I think an above poster’s BVD acronym works!

Not as catchy as MVP but BVD is a recognizable brand name (catchy enough), plus there is no way to include M within a top ten reference.
