I am truly fed up with this message board. Are all of you so deeply obsessed with T14 schools that you cannot even fathom that 180+ other schools exist? Since I am the OP, re-read my second post:
"I think it's a given that the top 14 schools have ALWAYS been the top 14. I should clarify my question and ask what about the rest of the 180+ schools (granted, some of them are fairly new)? How were they "classified" by the legal community without the USN&WR?
For hypothetical purposes, lets say there were only 100 law schools 25 years ago (I have no idea, just shooting off the top of my head) and lets NOT TALK ABOUT THE T14 SCHOOLS FOR ONE MOMENT ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD (sheesh!), how did firms match up a Wisconsin versus an Illinois, or a Washington-St.Louis versus University of Texas?"
Most law students do not go to T14 schools and that was exactly my point in posting my questions. And yet, all of you just can't help but revert back to T14 talk. This website should be called "Top 14 Law Schools Discussion," or better yet, "95% of All Other Law Schools Suck Discussion."
