Haha ok so if BC can manage to cross that giant threshold between T26 and T25, then your firm might give them a glace? What about the fact that BU didn't break T25, and was outranked by BC, until 2004? Those partners at your firm have only been there for about 5 years?
Something tells me you'll be going out for your schools moot court team Burger....
Haha I actually don't even have a pony in this race- I don't really have a reason to prefer one Boston school over the other, and at this point, I don't- I just find it hard to believe that firms really look at the two of them as being drastically different. That being said, I have no evidence/experience to back that up, and I could be totally wrong. But like Pearalegal just suggested, I sort of doubt that law firms have a framed copy of USNWR on their desks... I mean I'm sure ranking matters, but a 6-point difference outside of T14, especially between 2 schools that have switched places in the rankings in the past more than a couple of times, just seems like it would be negligible in real life.
