What's "top tier"?
« on: November 15, 2006, 02:59:35 AM »
1-50 or 1-100? I've been reading classified ads for legal jobs with "top tier" school graduation requirements...
3.95/162
137(c), 147(d1)...5months later... low 160s

If you go to a 51-100 school, consider it 1-100, if you go to a 1-50 school consider it 1-50 ;) There's no clear cut definition, although the USN ranking sort of indicates 1-100 being considered a joint tier.

According to USN, Tier 1 = #1-50, Tier 2 = #51-100.

I'm going with 1-50, because after that is Tier 3, and USN&WR doesn't say "Top Tier," they say "Top 100."

Top tier is T14. Then you have the second tier of other good but not great schools. Then you have the bad schools after 50.

Oh, @#!*, I got into #51 but not #49. My educational dreams are shattered.

I'm REALLY hoping for #77. That's the one for me.
