Not yet. But then again, I would still go to USC if they gave me enough money.

Commence Yankee hatred over passing up higher ranked East Coast options.

They don't, but the LSAT/GPA numbers don't lie. We put together a hell of a class this year.

Heres the new employment ranking methodology:

Employment Rates for Graduates The employment rates for the 2009 graduating class determine success in this category. Employment rates are measured at graduation (.04 weight) and nine months after graduation (.14 weight). This year, we modified how we compute the new J.D. employment rates used in the law school rankings in an initial effort to publish employment data that is somewhat more reflective of the job market for new J.D. graduates compared to our previous calculation method.

In the past, new J.D.s counted as employed at graduation and at nine months out if they were working full or part time in a legal or non-legal job or pursuing additional graduate school education after their J.D.; so did 25 percent of those whose status was "unknown." Now, both the at graduation and nine months after employment rates are figured solely based on the number of grads working at that point in time full or part time in a legal or non-legal job divided by the total number of J.D. graduates. Also, those who are not seeking employment are now counted in the calculation as part of the total number of J.D. graduates; previously, they were excluded from the size of the graduating class and the calculation. U.S. News believes that this calculation is a more realistic presentation of the employment data that is currently available to U.S. News.

But seriously, Washington just keeps moving on up. I knew it was a good school, but should I believe it's *that* good in terms of absolute job prospects. I would still take #22 BU over it, but I am just a humble dumbass.


WUSTL games rankings end of story

yea i heard they built a 20-story library at the edge of campus just to game the rankings. it doesn't even have any books in it. they actually use it as a parking deck.

Why the bump?

Because if USNews doesn't tweak the relative weights of different factors every year, how the hell do you expect them to sell magazines?

No jobs; the drop in rank is just insult to SEVERE injury.

1. No jobs? did you notice Emory outplacing WUSTL in the latest NLJ rankings?
2. Emory was ranked 32 5 years ago, schools fluctuate, no one cares.

You mean their NLJ 250 numbers? Does anybody on this forum realize there's other firms out there and that you don't have to get paid as much in Texas to take home the same amount of cash?

Good point. How often does a non-T14 make it in, though? Hasn't the T14 been the T14 for, well, years?
