From what I have read & heard, the T14 are clearly "National". Then the T15-30 are "Semi-National", and from there on down schools are primarily "Regional". After T75 employment prospects really begin to dwindle for the average graduate.

That's probably a pretty good rule of thumb.  There are internal differences even there, e.g. HYS vs. Northwestern/Duke/Cornell.  Texas and Vanderbilt are probably more national than Emory, George Washington, Notre Dame, etc.  And with the USNWR rankings some schools are overvalued in terms of placement ability (Minnesota, Iowa) and some are undervalued (Hastings, Tulane), but your sort of tier system largely removes this problem.

I don't see how Hasting and Tulane's placement values are so great when compared to Minnesota and Iowa.  The later 2 schools are clearly superior to the first 2, not to mention they are clearly more national, which is the topic of this thread.

Unfortunately, the topic of his post wasn't comparison. He didn't compare Iowa and Minnesota to Hastings and Tulane... he just said the first two were overvalued and the later two were undervalued.

I don't know, but an A at Hillman is an A anywhere.

I would imagine day classes and night classes are taught in the same way... Often, the same teacher will teach both.

That's true... still, it is pretty weak, kind of like quitting right before you get fired or preempting a breakup just for some ?pride? reasons. IDK

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Fordham is sneaky

A month ago, I withdrew from Fordham after being deferred. Then, a couple of days ago, I get a letter saying that I've been rejected from Fordham... come on guys, trying to make your acceptance rate a little lower is one thing, but rejecting an application that isn't even *valid* anymore is another. :D

probably the JD...

....but, you know, whatever's best for you.

I haven't heard of an offer of admission being rescinded, but I do know that scholarships can be. Temple said in their acceptance that their scholarship offer was contingent on my current GPA, and should it drop (I'm guessing considerably), so would their offer.

The new rankings make me glad I chose IU... their ranking went down one, but their reputation score went up a lot.

miami's is pretty weak as well....

Their reputation isn't that great, and their student body doesn't have the numbers of UK's and Louisville's student bodies.

I have lived in Ky my whole life and the school does not have a bad reputation here at all.  That is why I asked the question.  I have only heard good things about the school.  I do agree with you on the numbers part.

I've lived in KY my whole life too... I'm not saying their rep is bad, but UK and UofL simply overshadow NKY. When I interned for my congressman, his general cousel was a Chase grad...
