Which way am I overstating?  Biglaw prospects larger or clerkship/academia difference is smaller?

Please refrain from turning LSD into XOXO. Rickroll is funny but not that funny.  ::)

I don't think it's funny so much as a great song.

I'm  not sure if I'm the only one who didn't know this... but for the longest time I didn't know why the "T14" was such a big deal. Why the number 14? Well I found out its because no school in the T14 has ever been ranked lower than 14. And all the schools in the T14 have been, and were the only ones to have ever been, in the Top 10 since the inception of the US News and World Report law school rankings came to be in the 80s.

Can you show us where you read this?  That sounds really interesting, and I'd like to read the article/book chapter.  Thanks!

The bolded is not true. The file I have shows that Cornell was #15 in 1987 and  Northwestern was #16.

I think it's actually that the top 14 are the only schools to have ever been ranked in the top 10 at some point.
