Why do you guys mostly predict UCLA dropping places? If anything I would think it is the most likely to jump into the bottom end of the T14, possibly pushing out Gtown.

Fordham moves back into the 20s and Davis and Hastings both snap back into the 40s where they belong.

I have no opinion on the CA schools but Fordham NEEDS to move back in the 20s. I don't go there and have no relation to the school but its a complete joke that they are ranked that low.

Half the people ITT are trolling. The other half is attempting to prove why the trolls are wrong.

Their LSAT median went down. Ipso facto, they're the most likely top school to drop.

Someone in admissions at Illinois told me they were looking at a 168 median. Don't know if they'll get quite that high but they might go up, though BigLaw in Chicago still hurts them

I can't see Illinois sustaining medians on par with UCLA, UT, and Cornell when the job prospects from Illinois are so much worse than the aforementioned schools. But crazier things have happened.
