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.
Its hard to tell. Only 25% of their class stays in state, so that might account for the relatively weak bar passage rate, but the decline concerns me since they send a significant percentage of their class out of state. It seems to me that consistent declines in ranking could potentially hurt them more than truly regional schools that dominate a particular state.
On the flip side, impressive to see UGA improving in the rough economy. They both cost the same for me so I guess I have all day tomorrow to figure it out.
