Meaningless prestige poll: median t10 vs. top10% T2 vs. t20 topthird

Seems like this is the general "borderline" cutoff for big law so I thought I'd do a pointless poll to further differentiate them.

EDIT: I'd add that this isn't poll about which one is better to personally have. But which is actually more preftigious. Like if you had 3 resumes in front of you. Which one are you picking of the 3, assuming everything else is equal.

Idk, I'm biased because I went to a T14, but I think school generally carries more weight than honors in your career. My school has opened up a decent amount of doors, and my GPA has become more meaningless the more experience I gain.

Upping the standard, I'd rather take Coif t25 > top 25% T10 > summa T100.

I transfered from a t20 to CCN for this reason. However, I sometimes wonder if staying at the T20 and having "order of the coif" or something would be niftier than my vanilla CCN degree. Shrug.

Median at top 10 is by far the safest position, and it's not close.
