Yeah that really sucks for NU and it has not been able to really escape that for a very long time!


Replying via your old is weak Gulc 0L.


You're probably right, we should trust TLS over peer assessments anyway.


We could go by placement at elite firms, placement in the NLJ 250, or law clerk placement if you'd like. Or you can go by a survey of what other Dean's think of a school. That is your choice.

All I'm saying is it should be T10.5 (excluding NU but keeping Duke). Seriously.

Out of the top 30 in fact. Their continual slide is somewhat worrying.


It's amazing to think that W&L was the in T20 just a few years ago.

Just goes to show how volatile (and therefore meaningless) the rankings are from 20-ish to 30-ish.



This is another school that is seriously underrated and I don't understand why it's dropping. I can understand how it doesn't compare to the t20 anymore, but really, another dramatic fall? This is ridiculous for such a great school.


It's not too surprising, actually - their placement and bar passage is pretty weak (bar passage rate is barely above the state average... not good). I don't know if it was always this way, but they really need to step it up.

So, this year UVa is Top 5 in placement, Top 6 in USNWR reputation scores, and Top 7 in student quality.

Just saying.

Much love for the shout-out and hard work.

Iowa looks like it's at 26 not 25 according to the scan at: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4044/4518895878_e9b939483c_o.png

You have got to be kidding if you think Duke and NU are not at the same level

The placement is definitely disappointing. The bar passage, well, that's just lazy. Most people could pass if they have the $$ for BarBri. This is just sad, it used to be an awesome school (as in I was excited to apply last fall).

Dude, you don't have to be embarrassed about going to GULC. It is the best nonT13 in the country.

She deserves the credit, she sent me a bulk pdf of all of it and I separated and hosted it for her since she was at work. I'm also at work but, well, I guess that's why she's in at Columbia and I'm not.
