New US News Rankings

Postby TrustMeI'mAnActress » Mon Jan 31, 2011 8:55 pm

May be a stupid question, but anyone know when the new US News and World Report rankings are released? Any predictions on if/how rankings will change??

Actually 4/8/2011 or shortly after, because current year paid access to their premium site expires 4/7/2011

In terms of predictions, the only real data we have to go by are the 2013 medians: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=128236

Based purely on those numbers, one could argue that NYU and Duke will gain ground (both +1 on LSAT median) and Berkeley (-1) will lose some. So, I'll predict that NYU supplants Chicago again as #5, Boalt drops below Penn, and Duke ties UVA again at #10.

Is that going to make Penn T6? :shock: :shock: :shock:

When do new building get counted? I know the middle all have new buildings coming, probably keeping them where they are.

Almost. I'm predicting:

4) Columbia
5) NYU
6) Chicago
7) Penn
8 ) Berkeley
9) Michigan
10) UVA
10) Duke

Penn's new building is going to be nice, but the construction is certainly an eyesore on Sansom.

Lets make NYU/Chicago/Penn tie for 6th to shake the earth a bit.

No one walks down Sansom. So it's ok.

Predicting FSU jumps UF based solely on the Governor's Cup victory back in November. UM drops down to tie with Stetson.












Hmm, this whole "make up rankings" thing is fun.

LSN makes it look like we're shooting for a 168 median, but Illinois definitely is as well so who knows if that's doable. Vandy moving to a 169 creates a to be filled at 168, but WUSTL probably has a little bit of an inside track against Illinois due to private v. public, funding for scholarships, and location. If the admissions office is smart, they'll sacrifice some of the huge class size to which they've expanded over the past few years in order to make a numbers jump more manageable. Pretty entertaining to keep tabs of on LSN every so often, it's like some kind of pointless horse race. I bet we'll at least be tied with USC this year though.

They publish their own, they don't need US News.

Whatever school I decide to attend will certainly jump at least 3 spots. When USNWR sees my awesomeness radiating from campus they won't be able to stop themselves.

Edit: To clarify, that means if I attend Yale it will jump from 1 to -2. Out of respect for my incredible aura USNWR will leave -1, 0, and 1 blank.

NYU may not be up, but Chi should be down.

Zero. Harvard's hiring spree plus the new wasserstein building ended that possibility.

US News cop out like all the other rankings they have and have HYS tied 1?

Check out the CS rankings, there is no way we have a 4 way tie, how the heck is anyone going to choose???

SLS just built a new building as well, and made a big hire in october (donohue from YLS). considering that SLS has a smaller faculty, i think this is fairly significant. early returns from LSN additionally suggest that LSAT median is rising (from 170 to 171), which traditionally has been holding the school back. i think it could jump.

I have to echo r6's question about when new buildings are counted. Wasserstein Hall isn't open yet and won't open for another year. Will that count for this year's rankings?

The rankings between HYS are driven almost entirely by per student spending. I dont think a point increase in LSAT median would make much of a diff.

Anyone think Texas is going down? It's medians are low relative to its ranking.
