Can someone explain the T14 to me? The US News rankings aren't handed down to us from above, so why do we religiously appeal to them. Maybe I'm just a nutter, but 14 seems like an arbitrary number as well, why not 15? Is there a LSD conspiracy to undermine Texas and UCLA. Both are great schools from everything I've heard, maybe not as impressive as HYS when dropped to a young lady over drinks, but within the legal community they carry weight. The whole tier system is arbitrary as well. If I were to apply and system it would be to differentiate regional schools and national schools. Of course this would only matter if you want to work for a large competitive law firm when you graduate, in a big city.
