You are right, here's the rankings:

1 University of California--Berkeley Berkeley, CA
2 Stanford University Stanford, CA
3 George Washington University Washington, DC
4 Boston University Boston, MA
5 New York University New York, NY
6 Columbia University New York, NY
7 University of Michigan--Ann Arbor Ann Arbor, MI
8 University of Houston Houston, TX
9 Duke University Durham, NC
Franklin Pierce Law Center Concord, NH

Apparently 3 professors left and that lead to the drop in ranking. Thats too bad, I was considering going there.

Kent is known for being a science law school. It will always be strong in areas where the law and science intersect despite the coming and going of professors and fluctuations in USNWR specialty rankings.

Not to hijack the thread, but I'm trying to decide between the Franklin Pierce Law Center, the James K. Polk School of Law, and the Zachary Taylor College of Law. Any thoughts?

Polk was definitely the best president of the 3.

Study presidential history, and you'll find that Polk is a very underrated president.
