T14? Try T169.

Lots of "scambloggers" think there are only a handful of schools in the top tier.  Princeton Review - like, a professional publishing company - knows better.  Their most recent tome is aptly entitled "The Best 169 Law Schools."  Those of you scambloggers who thought that official publication book titles couldn't get more absurd were yet again wrong.  WRONG.  Wrong.

My favorites would include the "most competitive students" list and the "most chosen by older students" list.  Of course, the greatest thing about this is that it assists the idea that there are 169 law schools that are worth going to in the United States.  Granted, they're like 30 short, but they're WAY ahead of the morons who wouldn't go to Boston U. or Texas and pay sticker.

And of course it allows some of our most unique law schools to properly boast their status as a top law school.

I'm off to go buy a copy.  I plan on putting it between "142 Best Days of World War I" and "195 Smartest Women Meth Addicts."  Alphabetical order and such.


  1. The square root of 169 is 13, which proves once and for all that Georgetown is not a top law school.

  2. Well, strictly speaking, it's true - there ARE 169 "best" law schools ... if you assume that their merits are based only on the fact that some other law school out there is "worse."

    But in the interests of equal time, they should put out a companion volume that showcases "The 25 Worst Law Schools."

  3. I want to know which schools they left out. Those must be 30 or so really bad schools. What could they have possibly done to get left off the list of every school in existence?

  4. I don't even need to check that text. I'm sure that Third Tier Drake managed to make the list.

  5. Hehehe. No doubt every law school admissions office in the country (except for the 30 or so TTTTTs) will have a copy proudly displayed.

    "See, kids, we're no. 1 in law schools with suburban campuses in landlocked states with on-campus suite-style housing!"

  6. So, it looks like 80% of law schools, then, are "top" law schools. Looks like some folks got a partcipation trophy just for showing up.

    Princeton keeps using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means.

  7. Ah, I'm so happy! Cooley got the best of something on a list that's not even of its own making!
