Because I am utterly fed up with all of the anti-Georgetown trolling that plagues these boards for reasons that utterly escape me - the most recent of which in this particular thread being the separation of GULC from the rest of the T-14 in both the pictures post and the "T13" of Desert Fox, as if it does not belong in the same breath as Cornell, Northwestern, Virginia, and Duke - I feel the need to point out the bullshit-ness of the USNews rankings when it comes to law school programs. Georgetown, being the only T-14 school that offers a Part-Time Program, get's utterly screwed by the selectivity rating. Since Part-Time programs are easier to get into, Georgetown's selectivity score takes a hit. If the rankings were to be a true comparison of the top law schools, then they really should reflect the fact that many of the top schools don't offer Part Time programs, rather than allowing the schools like Georgetown and GW to take a beating compared to their true peers who do not have a less selective Part-Time program weighing down their selectivity rating.
So, those of you who are pissed Georgetown didn't accept you and those of you who think that Georgetown is beneath you because you got into a "better" program according to the flawed USNews calculation can continue your trolling, but you people are ridiculous.
Note: it also doesn't get into the "T12" of thickfreakness (and all of this years and last's supporting data), but at least you guys have Cornell to be friends with, along with Vandy, UT, and UCLA.
