among the T14s, Penn and Cornell get a disporportionate amount of hate. I guess people don't like the schools i go to.

otherwise, i'd say...NYLS and poor, beleagured Rutgers-Newark, just because of the crappiness of Newark.

NYU appears to get a lot of crap.

I've seen NYU get alot of love though, so I think it balances out.

The school gets lots of love; the admissions office seems to be pretty hated.

Most hated online:

1. Cooley (I think this is justified)
2. All other T3 and T4, pretty much equally ("TTT")
3. Every school lower than GW in the rankings (starting with, yes, Iowa)
4. Texas ("Hi, I'm Brian Leiter, and I teach at a T16 - make that T18 - school!")
5. All other schools right below GULC ("Go to a T14 or kill yourself!")
6. Cornell ("Ithaca?!")
7. GULC ("If you're not above the median, just drop out!")
8. Duke ("I hate their basketball team, so their law school sucks!")
9. Boalt ("They actually consider other stuff besides LSAT scores - ridiculous!")
10. Penn ("Now we have to call it T5 instead of T6!")
11. NYU ("I don't care what the rankings say, which faculty they hire, or what caliber of students they attract; my school is still better in every way!")
12. Columbia/Chicago ("Go to HYS or kill yourself!")
13. Yale ("Harvard's just as good! Really, I'd pick Harvard even if I got into Yale!")

Ok, nobody hates Yale.

I definitely think Duke gets wayyyyyy too much online hate, and it's sports-related, rather than law school-related.

I have read more "WTF? Iowa" and "Why Iowa" and "What's the deal with Iowa" threads than I can remember. Not sure if it qualifies as hate, really, but more like skepticism. People seem to hate it because they think it doesn't deserve to be ranked higher than their schools, which usually have higher LSAT scores.

That qualifies as HATERATION....

Add to that list, BYU

CoxlessPair loves hating on the Mormons

So should I conclude that I am personally responsible for nearly 50% of all the law schools getting a raw deal on this board?

Iowa and BYU suck. Sue me.

I'd say closer to 35%

That would leave Harvard, Stanford, Michigan, Virginia, and Northwestern...sounds about right

I don't know...  I think there's a fair amount of folks who seem to think UVA is nothing but a bunch of drunk, racist, polo-shirt wearing, Rush Limbaugh loving frat boy types.  I mean, it's utterly wrong, and I laugh to you, you silly, silly people, but it's out there.  Although I sure wouldn't put us ahead of Penn.  But that's less the school's fault, and more where it happens to be located.
