General Off-Topic Board / Re: if princeton founded a law school today, what do you think it would be ranke« on: January 22, 2005, 11:52:25 AM »
I definitely think Princeton would be, in a way, grandfathered in to the t14. Most certainly the assumption on the part of many (enough) applicants, professors, professionals would be that Princeton would produce only a high caliber law school. So, highly qualified a applicants would apply, they could also attract a strong faculty, firms would likely be interested. Certainly, Princeton would not be hanging around with Falwell's school simply because it is a newbie in the discipline. Besides, it is often ranked in the top 3 (in law schools) in polls of the public; the aura of this ivy would encompass the law school.
I disagree whole-heartedly. By admission, you're basing your opinion on an assumption, which is something that should never be done. In any event, like any other law school, I'm sure it'd have to "prove itself" before USNWR puts it in the Top 14 in its silly, meaningless rating system.
