The men’s basketball tournament has one of the wildest Final Four lineups ever (the women’s tournament is just waiting around for South Carolina to win). But it’s got nothing on the remaining four challengers for the title of Top Unscientifically Determined Law School.
Many of the top law schools in the country decided to stop sharing key data with organizations crafting objective rankings. So we wondered what a completely unscientific ranking would look like. And it’s very funny.
Vote through Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern.
To borrow from As Good As It Gets, this is what happens when you think of a law school ranking and take away reason or accountability.
(32) ASS Law v. (13) Northwestern
The bots driving up the voting got tired of just juicing George Mason and decided to slay Harvard as well. Northwestern became the beneficiary of this giant-killing mood, but can it stand up to the ASS Law vote machine?
(16) Texas v. (6) Penn
Poor Penn has lost all of its single-digit seed buddies. I don’t know what the voters had against Georgetown, but it was the sole exception to the last round’s pronounced underdog bias. Now Penn gets to mess with Texas. I’m sure that will end well.
Voting ends Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern.
