Wait, you are actually taking these rankings seriously?  I thought this was all a joke.  No offense, but I agree that your opinion that HYS aren't the top 3 schools is pretty irrelavant.  The overwhelming majority of people who have an interest in the legal industry feel that it is.  The US news rankings have their faults, but not regarding the top 3.  You will be hard pressed to find someone who agrees with you on this.

Oh, and Bender is right.  Saying HTH after every post, especially when your post is not absolutely true (matter of opinion) is kinda douchey.

We are not asking anybody to understand or agree with our rankings; those who attempt to do so through their own fallible powers of reasoning will prove, without exception, unsuccessful.  These rankings operate on another plane entirely.  If you don't like the plane, you don't have to be a part of it, but engaging in the time-dishonored art of flame-warring seems counterproductive to me.
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

The cooley rankings are useful for cooley apologists. Apparently a keystone of the ethics instilled at cooley is the important business ethic of inventing your own ranking system to puff up your institution.

At least the ALAMAR foundation isn't run out of some adcomm office.

As for HLS -- PRESTIGIOUS?? whatever. 600+ person 1L class? Oh super prestige!!

Layman's terms don't matter. If laymen made the call, Princeton Law would be #5 overall. hth


This confirms all of my suspicions: Washington and Lee is superior to Harvard, Indiana is superior to Duke, University of Iowa is superior to Cornell, and St. Johns is superior to Penn!

ALAMAR = good because SJU is ranked top 40.  This is going on my resume.

"Attended tier 1 law school according to ultra-prehstijeous  ALAMAR rankings.
