This was a bad year for the state of Missouri - Mizzou dropped 27 spots and SLU dropped to Tier 3 status.

I just read that USD is #56...go figure. It belongs up there with the big boys anyways.

Chicago kicks ass...Tulane sucks ass (for falling) and so does IUB. "Wow" (in a bad way) on Temple and Chicago-Kent..."wow" in a good way on GA. St.

I contacted one school who confirmed this but could not release the rankings. It's time to start hassling schools to see if anyone can get information. If someone could find out the top 25 (not predict) please post it on here. I swear this is no joke, contact any law school admissions office. They should validate this.

No rants here. I am shocked at a few but, some schools that deserve to move up did. The rankings are all a joke, to be honest. It looks like some schools' efforts to game the ranking didn't work (...ehem...NYU, NU and a few others). But UC-Davis and GWU came back real strong baby!! I told y'all miami would move up. As soon as they stop accepting half of their applicants and shrink their class size just a wee bit, they'll be in the top-40. :wink:

You think the medical and business school crowd is pissed that their rankings aren't posted?

IU-B is a public TTT. We all knew they were going to drop. The only reason they had that was the donation by Maurer. Tulane has been falling and you can thank hurricane katrina for that, even though it did not affect Tulane. Chicago KenTTTTTTT, they were and are even more of a TTT now. Temple, they still own philly so who cares.

JL does indeed deserve props for her efforts, as does mavsman, for starting this thread. I was at my nonprofit all afternoon doing research, so I missed the fun. As to the rest of your statement, I think :roll: sums it up nicely.

I wonder. For the record, user JL should NOT post them, to avoid further angering the USNWR.

For some reason it occurred to me it'd be a bad idea to open my burgeoning intellectual property studies by violating intellectual property.

They haven't even been released yet. I can hardly argue they're so widely available that this is merely a drop in the bucket.

i figured we were doing you a favor by not fully appropriating the OP spot. You could have given the thread a title that didn't suggest that you were delivering the goods, but you were in it for the glory. Take what you can get, man. I mean, I even did something useful like made all of the links pretty and compile everything in one spot, and I don't ask for "props." If it were not for countless such acts of ego-immolation on the altar of Ken, TLS's flame couldn't burn this brightly.

Let that knowledge be your reward as you go forth and selflessly do good things (or as you STFU).
