Maybe, but as a 2L, the only thing that matters to me w/r/t rankings is that UVA/Boalt trolls STFU. I swear those two schools have the most trolls on TLS.

I'm confused and too lazy to search the thread. I thought they were ranking T3 and T4 this year?


EDIT- just looks like T3 (assuming 145 is the boundary)

Guys I know they say the V37 I am working at is less prestigious than a lot of the V25s out there, but many of those are sweaTTTshops, amirite??

Agreed. Employers will flock en masse from Penn's OCI to Mich.

i'm looking over the medians from last year and this new ranking. so far i see that Berkeley dropped in its 25% in GPA and lsat (3.68 -> 3.64, 165 -> 162). Crazy it's still in T10.

NYU's 75% LSAT went up to 175 from last year's 173 and is now equal to that of Columbia.
ETA Columbia's LSAT %s went up by 0.01 point to 3.61 (25%) and 3.82 (75%)

Full disclosure: If I can get out of it with less than $140k in debt, I'm going to USC. Though I recognize its limitations, I really don't want to live anywhere else but between OC and SD.

PT is easier to get into thus you lose much of your elitism when you are taking people with lower numbers.


Wow. I didn't know GULC was *that* big. Holy shit.

I don't know, but I'd stay away from that festering TTT. Firms are looking at the rankings and deciding not to OCI there as we speak.
