WELCOME TO THE 2019 USNWR T25 PREDICTION CONTEST

Image

This is the FIFTH ANNUAL Law School Ranking Prediction Contest we've hosted.

In this thread, you predict USNWR's Top 25, Robb's fancy program compiles and grades your entries (something I did by hand in the early days...), and whoever's closest when the rankings are released wins their choice of the available prizes.

Big thank you to Robb, who is the creator of MyLSN.info, for creating the program that makes this all relatively easy. ALL HAIL ROBB.

And big thank you to our past prize sponsors, including SPIVEY CONSULTING GROUP. Spivs usually gets the rankings a day or so early, so follow him at @SpiveyConsult if you want a chance to see them first.

ENTRIES ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED.

STEPS
1. Click this link: CLOSED
2. Fill out your Top 25.
3. Make sure you don't have any errors (it'll be green and say that you don't if you don't).
4. When you're done, copy the BBCode text and post it in this thread.

Post or PM with any questions!

Could be, depends whether we get other prizes. For a couple years Spivey flew the top prize winner out to CO, which was awesome. Something like that would trump my hot sauce

The firm I took them to for a day of being a lawyer totally imploded. It was an awesome firm too they had like gourmet chefs deliver food 24/7 and you could write on all the walls. Beautiful building overlooking the rockies. Makes me sad.

What sucks is I know all of these people. It used to be the happiest place in the world. Litigation is ugly. Avoid it. Also, I won't take the winner there :D

Hey North, if we could set up a thread just for this contest I can link it from our blog and twitter account and maybe clever people can link it elsewhere :)

I'm game. If there's a tie at 25, it doesn't matter which of the tied schools we list, right?

Also, am I missing the link, or is this formatting weird on my phone?

I'm assuming that "big green button" to submit a prediction is part of the update TBA?

The year I won this contest (2015) was one of the best in my life. Spivey was going to fly me to Colorado but I had to cancel to visit Harvard after being accepted as a transfer. Don't know if I ever said thanks to Spivey for his advice back then, so thanks Spivey. North's hot sauce was delicious as well, so thanks North.
