Is Brooklyn's ranking going to drop next year?

Postby msh342 » Wed Apr 07, 2010 7:20 pm

Rank changes within the Tier 2 don't really matter, as long as it doesn't drop into the third tier.

Good thing there wasn't a math component to the LSAT.

Yes ... No ... Maybe ... Can you repeat the question? 8)

For real though, you shouldn't change schools b/c of a rank-shift. You'll be okay to stay in a city given any realistic 2009-2010 USNWR shift for Brooklyn Law.

Main point: Stop thinking about this.

As other posters pointed out, any rankings drop would be entirely meaningless. In fact, I would argue that a single year rankings drop is meaningless for ANY school.

A multi-year precipitous rankings drop could be problematic- but that isn't because of the rankings- it's because the school has dropped in the esteem of the legal community.

So, I guess there won't be much fallout then.

Probably not. If you want to be near New York City, and you can't get into Fordham, the next best school would be Brooklyn followed by St Johns, Pace, or NYLS.

I don't see much fall-out.

Funny, I totally forgot about Cardozo. Well let me amend my earlier statement:

If you want to be near New York City, and you can't get into Fordham, the next best school would be Cardozo followed by Brooklyn, St Johns, Pace, or NYLS.

I still don't see too much of a fall-out.

edit: I want to amend this by qualifying the definition of best as in rankings.

Tulane can get you "back to" NY, and possibly with an elite firm if that's the goal. Go enjoy NOLA for three years, or kick 1L ass at Tulane and transfer to Fordham, NYU or CLS. Temple is closer in proximity, but less likely to get you to NY...go figure.

Go to Tulane.

Nola is better and cheaper than nyc. Fewer schools to compete with down there. And you can learn about the law of the sea...
