I think MSU Law can reach a ceiling of about a 40 ranking. Why not? They are backed by a billion dollar plus BIG10 school that appears to be taking the rankings seriously.
I see no reason, other than they are in a very depressed state, why MSU cannot climb to a position on par with other BIG10 institutions, such as Wisconsin and OSU. Further, MSU is basically a new law school. In another ten years, the admissions game at MSU will be radically different. My 2 cents, anyway.
