Yup, that’s right: say goodbye to the term “TTT,” or “third-tier toilet.” Now these schools get individual numerical ratings, instead of being lumped into an undifferentiated “third tier.” And now Justice Clarence Thomas won’t have to defend his law clerks against allegations of TTT-hood.
If you’re not sure what exactly a TTT is, you might check here.
Not that it’ll make a difference. If you’re not in the top of the top tier, you’re better looking for regional school in the area you want to work post graduation, and for that, ranking won’t really help you that much, anyway.
Even then, as I’ve noted in previous posts, in contrast to what law schools are marketing, there’s no guarantee that law school will be the road to wealth and prestige that you thought it was, let alone pay off your student loans before your kids get out of college and start paying down their own student loans.
