Makes you wonder wtf is going on at Baylor, BYU and Hastings that make their students as cutthroat as the mostly-doomed Cooley and Nova students.

I wasn't surprised by BYU because they're like Fordham for Mormons, right? As in, they place above their ranking in NYC biglaw.

Hastings is probably a function of being the sixth best school in California (maybe seventh if you include UC-I).

Baylor competes with UT-Austin, SMU, and Houston. What other population centers have that kind of concentration of similarly-ranked schools? (NYC excluded, obviously) Chicago, by comparison, has Chicago, then NU then nothing until Kent/Loyola/Depaul. That's my guess.

Although the majority of these rankings look like garbage, I do gotta say that, having spent a year there, BU's professors are incredible.

I go to Baylor (1L) and I would NOT call the atmosphere competitive. My section is extremely helpful and friendly and I've never heard differently about other sections. Everyone just works really hard because our teachers expect a lot out of us in class. Socratic is used intensely and no one wants to get up there and not know what's going on. Also, we have finals 3-4 times a year (depending on if you do the summer session), so that demands a lot of studying. Hours spent studying doesn't seem like the best indicator of how competitive a school is, in my opinion.
