What the fuck does a point even mean? Nothing. Literally nothing. Nothing about USNews actually measures how good a school is.

Though St Johns is a raging TTT.


you are a raging TTT

Take that, SU.


neither.


I've talked to many (misinformed) applicants who want to stay close to my hometown (or, just didn't have the scores to move to another location comfortable) and literally picked Syracuse over the stupid ranking, even though it cost so much more.

I'm happy to be leaving WNY, but I'm glad my UG's law school is trying to work its way up in the face of an awful state budget.

Is U.S. News employment data self-reported? I know a girl that graduated from ASU law and tells everybody that she is "practicing law" without giving any details. In reality she moved back in with her parents. Could she technically "tell" U.S. News that she is "practicing law"?

Could be borders, could be in house counsel at an investment bank. Both count the same.

Just like private firm can be appellate litigation boutique or doc review in jersey.
