See, normal people throughout the country really have no idea who ranks where. Out west people will ask about Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky if you say that you go to Penn. They'll think you are attending some online school if you say Wharton. They'll nod approvingly whether you say NYU or New York Law School. And after hearing the name Columbia, they'll say "Oh that's a good school. Where is that located again?"
+1 to EVERYTHING Tiago said. Also from California (East Bay) and just went to a UG basically for football... I'm willing to admit that before I started researching Law Schools a few months ago, I thought when people were talking about Penn on TLS it was shorthand for Penn State... i had to google wtf is Wharton.. only reason I knew Northwestern was because of football recruitment, but still couldn't tell you what state it's in.
From a California point of view, the T14's lay prestige would probably be Stanford>Berkeley/H/Y>Duke/Columbia>the rest
I did however remember that Topenga was accepted to NYU Law at the end of Boy Meets World
