Beyond lay prestige and USNWR rankings, which law schools can realistically be considered elite? t14 + Texas, UCLA, Vanderbilt, USC, WUSTL, GWU, Emory? Who am I missing...or am I being too liberal?

What is the point of this thread? Making a thread like this really brings out the worst in TLSers, especially 0Ls. Is this because you want to tell people you went to an elite law school when you're having snooty conversations over cocktails? Sorry for the bitchiness, but this is silly.

Just Yale. Are you sad that you won't be going to an elite law school now?

That might help....but only a little. I have always wondered how many people think that's my real name because they don't know who she is.

HYSCCN are the only truly elite schools, and that's being EXTREMELY generous to N.

"Princeton University does award honorary degrees of law. Sonia Sotomayor, then Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit now Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States received an Honorary Doctor of Law Degrees from Princeton University."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princeton_Law_School

They've given out less than 200 law degrees. Bill Clinton has one. So do Lawrence Summers and Paul Volker. Kofi Annan got one too, but he was URM.
