... yes I know that wouldn't mean a god damn thing on the employment front....
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.


UIUC's median was 166 last year. I doubt they can go from 166-168.
It might stir up some talk amongst hiring partners. It might not make a short term diff, but over the long term if wustl can consistently stay in the top 18 or 19 who knows what will happen.

All they have to do is take less 1Ls and take more transfers. Increase transfer size to 70 and decrease 1L size to 200.

I think it was a joke. Androstan is going to GW next year (I believe).

I think any 0L would like to see the place we decided on move up.

Whoops. I checked my sense of humor at the door to the office (where I'm procrastinating by browsing TLS)

Does anyone know when these are supposed to come out? I don't even know how you're supposed to choose a school until the new rankings are published!

+1 :)

I think they need to do more to update the physical law school though. It just seems way too 60s aside from the new wing. I mean look at what CU did...

Phew, before seat deposits. So everyone can see if their school went up or down in the rankings and figure out what this means for future prospects.

You think US News will miss this golden opportunity to pray on the indecisiveness of 0L's? Even I will buy a damn copy.
