Why? Their LSAT median didn't change, and their GPA median dipped .02. If they want to climb up a few spots back into the T30, they'd need to either raise their other scores, or have enough schools above them drop in some category. I don't now enough about the non-LSAT/GPA metrics (any major faculty hires that would sway academic survey, increased spending, etc), but I don't think anyone in that 28 block above them came in with lower medians.

yea your right that the numbers dont provide the support for them moving up. just get the feeling their other factors will get them back, their job data seems to be a little stronger (eg sending more students to biglaw and clerkships) than their peers. but i know nothing so who knows haha.

I still have trouble understanding what UNC and Wisconsin are doing at 28. Their admission numbers are terrible compared to several schools lower down. Is it the strength of regional placement?

fordham probably shouldn't have dropped to 34 in the first place
