I think an interesting player is Penn, and whether they can crack into the T6.

You could make an alt account. I suggest "NotMikeSpivey" or "Very_Uninformed_0L"

I was surprised at how many people were willing to break up traditionally-stable rankings--Chicago into HYS, Penn into the T6, etc.

Penn is clever in their admit strategy. Rather than to consistently go after the best combination of GPA/LSAT, they seem to take some applicants with one number above their median even when the other is way below. This allows them to also have a super high yield from those applicants that are very unlikely to get into any of the other t-10 (or even t-13) while not significantly affecting their medians. They can also go after older business oriented applicants with a high-yield. That strategy allows them to keep that super low acceptance rate and 3.9ish average GPA. Most t-14 acceptances follow a diagonal negative slope line on LSN while Penn's acceptances follow more of a pattern that looks like what would be above the top line and to the right of the right side of a square. I have no idea if what I wrote paints that image as clearly to others as it does to myself. There numbers are superior to NYU and I suspect their ranking will be soon as well.

Without further ado, my ranking predictions:
1. Yale
2. Stanford
2. Harvard
4. Chicago
5. Columbia
6. Penn
7. NYU
8. Virginia
8. Duke
10. UC-Berkeley (Even though their numbers are not that impressive, they also are good at gaming the numbers and snagging a high-yield)
11. Michigan (their employment numbers along with the brutal winter will have it fall below their Duke and Virginia competitors)
12. Northwestern
