The thing is that many of us are applying this year, as that is a major draw of this site. As someone who only began caring about the rankings about two months ago I have this relatively bad impression of GW. I see the numbers, but I also understand why the change occurred, which is because GW was a PT degree mill profiting off the fact that PT programs were ignored in the rankings. I am not saying it cannot recover its old reputation easily, or that lawyer rep/job prospects suffered, I am just explaining my opinion on why there is no love here right now.
