If any TLSers happen to be around Penn Station today, it would be awesome if you could check for all of us. I would do it myself but I no longer live in NYC.

The newsstand you'd be looking for is one of the biggest newsstands in Penn Station, so it'll be hard to miss. Ask around if you can't find it and I'm sure you'll get pointed the right direction.


USNWR is releasing the rankings online in order to preempt the inevitable leaking. They're trying to beat them to the punch.


Thanks for the info... I wasn't aware of that. Smart move by USNews.

I guess this wasn't posted in this thread yet, but this year the rankings will first appear online at midnight on 4/15 and only then come out in print.


USNWR website will crash precisely at 12:01am EDT


I'd love to see a DDoS aimed at USNWR tomorrow night. The next morning they'll trace it back to a computer on the Georgetown network...

In the comments section of a new article on ABL - --LinkRemoved-- - a poster claims that Hofstra's Dean is telling everyone at the school that they went up from 100 to 86.

So now that we know all the important moves, we can stop talking about this.

So can I safely assume that if I check back after midnight tomorrow one of you fine people will have the rankings up for me?

In another, you could find a school that is pissed they fell a tier and want to sabotage the release date as payback.


Yeah, call Nebraska. They were pisssssssed last year when an error dropped them from the 70's into TTT.

Dean VZ of NU has already commented generally to ATL.

--LinkRemoved--

Although the tone is still very neutral, I get the sense that he wasn't terribly thrilled about this year's results.

An attorney I work with just saw it in PRINT at Grand Central magazine stand...if anyone wants to go buy it. He just looked at the schools I was interested in attending.

It's a block away from my office, but I can wait another day to confirm it online... My deposits aren't due for another two weeks.

Yeah, he said he's sure. I might head over there after work to confirm. I don't believe anything I can't see with my own eyes. He says Columbia's still 4 (that's my top choice), NYU dropped to 6, Chicago's 5.

Damn, threads like these make me seriously want to reconsider going to law school. Or at least hope that you all will not be in the same section/class/school/city as me.
