WOW. FSU is catching THE FUCK UP to UF. I'm interested because I'm a Floridian, but it doesn't really affect me.

Time was when UF beat out FSU in the rankings by ~20 or so, and now the difference is only 3 spots. People say the rankings are meaningless-but I'm talking about Florida prestige. UF is a great school, but maybe FSU will start getting more respect from the naysayer Gator elitists.

Which is not to say that every Gator is a snob (talking to you rman-you don't seem like one), but there are many.

What else did you expect out of a shitty magazine?


Wait, so they still haven't updated that? OWN UP TO IT, ASSHOLES. It's not like we don't know that the economy turned things to shit.

I would guess this is a function of the disproportionately hard hit on Atlanta's economy.

Interesting that to find a school that equals or beats UNC's assessment score, you have to go all the way up to Vanderbilt at 16, who has a 4.1 to UNC's 4.0. UCLA's is only 3.9.

I have a feeling they'll be addressing that. It's already gotten harder to get PT there because of USNWR.

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.

umad bro?

Thanks!

P.S. - I was hoping Northwestern would jump past Duke, but much the opposite occurred. Thoughts on this? I noticed Duke's admit numbers were actually considerably better which is weird to me because nobody seems to talk up Duke much. They have a good rep, but also a rep as a frat school. Also, what the f--- happened to Berkeley?

Also... how the f--- did Texas jump into a tie with Georgetown when their admit numbers are fairly lower, employment numbers are relatively the same. Am I missing something there?


Dude... too soon.

I take issue with the Academia thing. I know personally a few people who don't want to be lawyers and are going back to grad school. But no way anyone from BU Law goes straight into academia. That's just BU giving students temporary jobs. Now, this is the same for every school, the academia thing (no one gets hired into academia right after graduation), what I refer to is how high they are. 17% is a lot of people in bullshit rankings-gaming "academia." I rag on BU only because the information is here and I'm strongly considering it.

Part time program is pretty TTT. Isn't Georgetown the only school in the previous T14 that has a part time program?

Now it's t13 ofc.

The Top Law BU page used to say that barely a third of BU grads stayed in Mass. Now it looks like it's about 50%.

T14 is the distinction for schools that have been ranked in the top 10 at some point or the other. UT is not a T14. It is ranked in the top 14 though, for this year.

Lol no.


Are you seriously disputing what T14 signifies?

I have a tough time remembering.

My brother went to Cornell (which is a T13, so I'm sure it was in the old "T14") back in the day, so I'll ask him.

But yes, if it was Georgetown that was the 14th LS in the "T14" back when it existed, then it would be the only LS there with a part-time program.

Cornell doesn't have a PT program.
