Saying only the T14 will help you nationally is ludicris.  GW is ranked #20 by U.S. News but was ranked #15 in a recent study on placement at elite firms nationwide.  Look at the statistics.  You people and your T14 crap crack me up.  No lawyer refers to the "T14" lol.  You are going to hear about the triage, the top 10, top 15, top 20, maybe the top 25, and then "everyone else."

Those studies favor large schools and schools in big markets since they only look at overall numbers and elite firms are in big markets.

Your argument seems incomplete.  What point are you trying to support (honest curiosity here)?

My point is that larger schools have more graduate, therefore it's easier to have more placed in elite firms (the study just counts graduates at the firms and doesn't account for the size of the schools), also a regional school in a big market (DC, New York, Boston) will have more students placed in elite firms because that it where the schools regions are.  My point was infered.

I'm not going to tout either of these studies as gospel truth, rather, I point to them as points of actual information as compared to baseless opinion spouted below. 

That said, both of these studies specifically accounted for class size, so I'm not sure if you have read them very carefully.

I'm pretty sure the Texas one doesn't.  That's the only one I'm familiar with, and I could be wrong.

It does, actually. Also, it was updated and more completely fleshed out.

hey - the new rankings are posted on US News' website and the ones that xoxo sent out initially do not look correct. there were many shifts in T2 schools...(cardozo is now 5 notches above brooklyn), and a drastic upset in the HYSC group as stanford jumped harvard and now the nickname should be HYSCN because NYU is tied with columbia.

i recommend you guys looking at the new stats...
