I wouldn't be surprised if Penn was gunning for Yale's spot.

UCLA is not going to jump over two schools that have always been t-14. What special thing have they done this year? Wishing won't make it so.

Eh. Vandy and UCLA are obviously fighting for it. Though if either sqeezes in, my money is on Vandy.

I don't think it will happen but I'd love to see Georgetown drop to 15. Serves them right for not giving me a fee waiver.

At least Sager has some track record of success at doing this.

To people in the legal community Texas is a better school than a number of schools "ranked" above it.

Texas is a tremendous school.

I'm not saying that Texas will move up. I'm saying that Sager had tremendous success at NYU and I have more faith in him moving Texas up then I do in UCLA.

Texas has been in considerable decline over the past five years. The faculty exodus alone stands to hurt the ranking.

That is not to say they are a toilet but any assumption that they are on the ascendancy is totally premature.

Sager had something to capitalize on at NYU that he doesn't have a UT-Austin...

hint: NYC

Don't forget to add the size of the class. I can't see UT-Austin jumping Duke when the rankings favor the smaller schools.

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned, but isn't the whole point of the "T14" that those 14 schools have ALWAYS been the top 14?  If a new school cracked the top 14, wouldn't the "T14" no longer exist?

Texas has been in the Top 14.

EDIT: In the original rankings, Texas was #11 and UCLA was #14.

Do you really think it matters to anyone if a school moves up 1 or two spots into T14?

Get real. Employers don't care that much. This discussion is about as useless as t-its on a boar-hog.

So, are they just traditionally the top 14?  Either way, if they were no longer "locked in" to those positions, maybe we could just come up with another arbitrary number?

The 14 has to do with schools that have been in the top 10. It would make referring to the T14 weird, but not undermine what it means.

I think GW is going to jump in the rankings. It'd be funny to see them at 17 or 18 and GU at 15.
