Obviously, dummy rankings were put out by USNews to foster complacency in interested parties until the real deal can be released. GET OUT OF MY HEAD USNWR

You think I got the store in trouble for releasing it early? I got it for $9.95, which is the listed price, but then heard they started charging $15 for it. They must have known something was up...



A hoax would be nice at this point. My brain hurts :)

Note that I'm going with this as legit until proven differently....unfortunately :(

It's about damn time, the fact that they weren't already there makes the USNews rankings look like a joke


Upon first look, I though the schools had "moved up" too. But I had to remember something: if they can be said to be tied for the high number, they can also be tied for the low number, as well.

I said before, being tied with five other schools means it is really #28, #33 and everything in between.

Same response as above. UC-Davis and UGA are tied with four other schools for #28 AND #33.

Aside from the Irvine issue (it should have been included in the disclaimer clause about not being ranked because it's provisionally accredited), spot-checking the numbers, they appear to be fine. Moreover, if it was a hoax, the person spent a lot of time making it seem realistic aside from just visuals (bumping NE and HI back into T2, ranking the schools that have just become/recertified as fully accredited, etc.)


I don't think it should have been included in a disclaimer, Irvine's inaugural class is still in 1L, how could they even be ranked?

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).


My sarcasm has yet again gone unnoticed, and I am hardly in it for the "fame". The rankings were released, I had contacted USNWR who confirmed this. I didnt title it here are the rankings, or 2011 rankings leaked, just that they had been released and i was searching for someone to track them down. Also, the STFU comment was just out of line and immature. Consider me disheartened.

Actually, I happened to read your post when my aspie coach was still here, and I consequently learned that your subtle technique of punctuating questions concerning insignificant matters with "?!?" and "???" meant that you were not being straightforward. However, (1) since you hadn't been officially reproached for using an attention-grabbing title to get people to click on a thread in which you supplied nothing of substance, and (2) as I hadn't yet posted my customary announcement that I had put out any effort at site management, I decided to make a post which, through the manifest insincerity of its ultimate message, would create a context of levity in which I could achieve both objectives without the drawbacks of a more sober approach (i.e., exposure to the risks of coming across as assholishly censorious or self-serving). I figured this lack of sincerity would be obvious in a post that represented the mods as self-righteous and mentally cracked (what other kind of person advocates "ego-immolation" at all, let alone when the greater cause is...this (see the past 37 pages)), but I guess I should have added more superfluous punctuation so that the masters of sarcasm would know not to take things at full face value.

OP forgot Minnesota in the original ranking, but the gap occurred between 25 and 27. OP came back and claimed Minnesota was #22, which wouldn't have affected the gap. The numbers were changed to make it work.

1) OP wasn't the one who posted any scans.
2) The scan has Minnesota at #22
3) NR was nice enough to transfer the scan into a more readable format and accidentally left out Minnesota, which was then later corrected.

Truth.

ETA: Totally mt fault on overlooking Minnesota; I corrected it as soon as it was pointed out, but several people kept using the quoted original post.


Its okay... it didn't really haven any impact on the rankings. Is Minnesota even an accredited law school? Or a state for that matter?

Someone should double check these, just did them in a rush.


Now, for schools that fell substantially (4 spots and up) like Fordham (-4), Alabama (-8, Yikes!), Maryland (-5), do you think this could screw up their entering class this fall because some admits into these schools who are numbers conscious, could decide to withdraw and go to other schools and just wait 'til next year to apply to other schools? 'Cause I'm thinking there are probably some people who were on the fence waiting on the rankings to come out. So, now some of this schools might not even have a full class come August!

You may wish these to be fake rankings, but they appear to be the real deal. Sorry if your school fell in the rankings :P

Naaaw. My school didn't fall. In fact, I don't even know where I am going. Still waiting on a few top-10's (Chicago included) and some others.
