What exactly are the tiers?

Postby Life2good893 » Mon Jan 19, 2015 5:38 pm

Strangely couldn't find this info explicitly stated online.

Is it ranked:
1-50 Tier 1
51-100 Tier 2
101+ Tier 3
Complete Joke For Profits Tier 4


Or
T14 Tier 1
15-100 Tier 2
101+ Tier 3 and 4


This might seem like a basic question, but clarification desperately needed. Thanks!

Tier 1 includes more than just the T14, but I don't think it goes as far as the T50. I'd say T20 or T25.

The "tiers" are 1-50/50-100 etc. They are an utterly meaningless distinction.

as far as TLS is concerned:

T3 = YHS
T14 = Y-GULC
Strong Regionals = UT, UCLA, Vandy, U Alabama, etc
TTT = everything else

(*Tier 1 historically refers to top 1-50*)

Tier 1- 1-50
Tier 2- 51-100
TTT

Its all sorta irrelevant though. Some schools in the 50's deserve a higher ranking, and many people believe that some schools in the teens don't belong there. It all depends on what you want, where you wanna do it, how successful these schools can allow you to do it, and of course, how affordable they can make it.

No disrespect to the U Alabama football team, but U Alabama?

Yea, I mean definitely not my first choice, but they have strong employment numbers per cost.
