I think the deans probably buy a bottle of vodka and start chugging just before the rankings are released. Not that they actually care about the substance of what the rankings mean, but because they might lose their job if they go down even an insignificant amount in the rankings.

My favorite is their reaction when they drop in or out of the top 100. It's either a cause for celebration or a reason to immediately start the damage control.

If the Dean is doing his job, he should know whether the ratings would be a cause for celebration or a cause for suicide beforehand.

After all, he's the one reporting the data, right?

The schools don't know how they fared in the peer and lawyer/judge assessment, that is a huge part of the rating. Also, each school knows its own data, but not how it compares to its peers.

well the deans need to be prepared for both (reference to the happy and sad box from The Office). Then, when they go up in the rankings, they do this:

You notice the massive lag in publishing the hard copy after the online release?

They're clearly trying very hard not to have a leak this time.
