ehh, it really only fell 2 spots. It went from 8-12 sure, but with a 3 way tie for 8 there were only Duke and Northwestern behind it. That is very common movement for a T14, although it assumes that Boalt was 10 in a no tie scenario. Also the entire concept of the T14 is that things change internally. It's different than being bumped out of the bubble

Please stop using archaic terms. Georgetown is going the way of Walkman CD players and AOL instant messenger.

MS9 has been a trusted source for several years.
Georgetown is probably trying to bribe USNWR before official release though, so anything could happen!

yes same year that hls and sls switched spots before


Texas and GULC tied for 14 once before. GULC had never not been ranked at least 14. This officially confirms the T13 as the new distinction.


Cornell was ranked 14 once. FYI. sry Cornell ppl

people still salty that its now the T13. Then you have the UT/GT/UCLA/VANDY group. The only meaningful distinction anymore is the T13 and then the strong regionals 14-18ish

Quoting just because it was so good it needed to be posted again. Well done.

I can't fathom why Berkeley is eating shit while Michigan has been left unscathed. In terms of BL+FC, they were both equally bad--GULC bad--a year or two ago.

A fair ranking would punish Michigan, Berkeley, and GULC by locking them out of the T10.

1. Y
2. H
3. SCC
6. N
7. PV
9. DNC
12. BM
14. G

Yeah, but the definition has to change since technically they haven't all been ranked 13+ forever

I like the "13 schools are in the T14 which has the same definition" argument.

3. SCC

7. PV

14. G


To follow up, the following schools should be ranked immediately thereafter, by peer assessment, to award them for placing more than one-third of their classes in biglaw or fedclerk:

15. UT: 42%
16. Vandy: 47%
16. UCLA: 45%
18. WUSTL: 34%
19. Notre Dame: 40%
19. USC: 38%
19. Boston U: 35%
22. GW: 35%
23. Boston C: 41%
24. Fordham: 35%



And the rest can be ranked however.

You would think us news would not want this info leaked early.... especially to the same guy twice in a row.

Anyone know why Duke wasn't punished for Kyrie Irving talking about the earth being flat? I know he was not at the law school but he had to have walked past some law students at some point

Looks like there's a new #2 in North Carolina. Eat shit, Heels.

Yes I know rankings don't matter and UNC has better biglaw/clerkship placement recently and a bigger alumni base in-state
