Question about T1, T2, etc.

Postby wannabealonghorn » Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:46 pm

Probably pretty easy and dumb question.

What is the exact breakdown of T1, T2, T3, and T4?

I know T14 means all the way down to Georgetown.
But I am not sure as to which schools are included under T1, T2, etc.

Would SMU for example be considered lower T2?

T1 = top 50
T2 = 50-100
T3 = 100-150
T4 = everyone else

Ridiculous anti McDonald's associate trolling. When you count debt they are probably much better off than Cooley grads.

Also WUSTL, Emory, minn, Fordham and GW are no different from the rest of the top 40 or so. So change T20 to T17.

thx guys for your answers.

I was just reading the transfer thread and I wasn't sure as to what they meant when they referred to T1, T2, etc.

So you'd rank Notre Dame the same as, say, Ave Maria? I see you trolling.

It's obviously HYS>T14>T25>T30>T1>T2 Not on East Coast> T3 and T4 not on East Coast> Inventive suicide> Other East Coast Schools.

Why would you possibly differentiate between 25 and 30?
