Choosing the Right Law School / Buying your way in?

I've heard rumors of people buying their way into schools.  Has anyone else heard of people donating money to get accepted?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Why T14
« on: November 25, 2005, 03:22:57 AM »
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.
