But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.

Nope, you are the first ever. Maybe we should give you an award for discovering Leiter.

Do me a favor and don't go to Georgetown.

Anyone seen these?  Kind of interesting.

LSD welcomes you, Professor Leiter.  How is life out in TTTexas?

People talk about Leiter all the time, that's all. And sorry I probably will be a Hoya in the fall.

The real deal is that rankings, (US News, Leiter) don't matter in the way that pre-laws think they do. While US News is a good tool for someone to find out what schools are generally considered 'good' and what aren't, the firms have long-standing relationships with the schools, and tend to hire from the same schools because they prefer a known quantity. Firms do not care if school X drops or jumps five spots to 27 this year...

The basic rule is, go to a T-14, and if you can't get in, go to the best school in your area that you get into.

He is not the first to see these rankings.  Althought the EQR is not as well known as US News, I have seen them mentioned in books and articles.  I think people will be putting more emphasis on these rankings in the future.
