Some Chick Lawyer found a leaked copy at grand central station and posted legit rankings. Main screen shots are on the middle of page 10!!

UBalt did jump up to T3

Umm...the leaked rankings that have been discussed non-stop for the past 22 pages?

Unless you're referring to what caused the jump up to T3, in which case I have no clue.

Someone posted that the rankings were released, but they were kidding.

Then some chick reported that the magazine was avialable at Grand Central station.

This was followed by accusations of her being a flame, a lot of anxious waiting, and a recounting of how the magazine was released by mistake at Penn station last year.

Then she posted them to her Facebook account, which bothered a shit load of people at work.

Then they got posted on flickr or whatever and everyone was happy. Except people whose school dropped (*cough* Fordham)

Don't be. It's not like the rankings make it a worse school.

You should be upset, but it shouldn't have anything to do with these rankings.

So, what are the thoughts on categorical rankings, do they matter? I know BU is number 22, but does the fact its 6 in tax help me if I'm interested in the field?

So is it fair to say that even though UVA stayed at #10, it did gain in these rankings from Duke and Northwestern falling a spot?

I should take this time to say that I'm so glad I chose to register an account here as opposed to AutoAdmit. Better formatting, and clearly, better users.

saved for future enjoyment and a year's worth of use against Cornell/GULC fans. Happy trolling! :twisted:

Not that I was ever completely satisfied with it, but I did buy into the "rising star" narrative until this.

Thank you all for the cliffs. Georgetown stays in top 14 -- GULC secure! 8) haha if my friends had any idea how dorky and lame I am... well, yeah.

prestige wise it doesn't mean anything

but actually learning technical skills wise i think it means a little. Seattle U being #1 in legal writing doesn't really mean much to employers, but it means that once I get into the market things might be a little easier for me in that department

UVA went up 3 points, while Duke and NU went up 2 points. Still just 1 points behind Michigan (and 2 behind Penn).

It doesn't matter at all, see the Health Law rankings if you want proof.
