The biggest losser appears to be the University of Missouri. Down 34 spots from 59 to 93!

Are you talking about how Duke got 100% employment rate right after graduation?

Being from St. Louis, my understanding is that job placement in St. Louis in Kansas City was abysmal and with state budget cuts and lot of key faculty walked. However, this doesn't explain such a precipitous decline. They are ranked behind so many public schools that they had a leg up on ever since the rankings came out.

Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but Cornell has the highest bar passage rate in NY. Higher than Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU, Duke, UVA, ect...

Besides that the big losses that I think are surprising are Buffalo, South Carolina, and Marquette falling out. All fell out from the 80s.

I assume the percentage doing clerkships or public service in NU is low (correct me if I'm wrong). This contribute to low peer assessment, especially from judges. Plus, NJ250 stats does not mean good Vault 20 placement stats which I assume could make a difference in peer assessment.

If anyone wonders, Ray is this awesome in real life too.

You heard wrong. You can easily find this years methodology on the usnwr website. There were minor tweakings.

You really think usnwr would put heavy emphasis on size of library?


why so serious?

A student needs a seat to study.

Mizzou is also AWFUL about giving scholarships... seriously, WUSTL and several other T25 were cheaper for me than Mizzou. They just aren't attracting top students.

I feel terrible for SLU, though. They deserve to be a Tier 2... they have phenomenal St. Louis placement, the best health law program in the country, and fought WUSTL to the bitter end for jobs this year (their career services official is phenomenal).
