The Order of the Coif has admitted Texas A&M as its 87th law school member

Texas A&M Law Logo (2016)The Order of the Coif is an honorary scholastic society the purpose of which is to encourage excellence in legal education by fostering a spirit of careful study, recognizing those who as law students attained a high grade of scholarship, and honoring those who as lawyers, judges and teachers attained high distinction for their scholarly or professional accomplishments.

All but five law schools in the U.S. News Top 50 (Boston University, Columbia, George Mason, Harvard, and Notre Dame) are members of the Order of the Coif. According to Wikipedia, these schools have not submitted applications because:

they do not rank the top 10% of their graduating class by grade point average,[citation needed] which the order's constitution requires.
