I also have premium access and it seems like they did absolutely nothing to remedy the egregious self-reporting of employed at 9 months statistics. And some of the stranger schools in the top 30-40 all have numbers that seem way overcooked next to the others (not that any of these are particularly honest).

Cornell only has a 3.63 median? Was it higher before this year?

I feel good about the rankings. I don't care if they matter.

The midwest legal market is both saturated and still suffering from the recession, while U Washington has home school advantage in a city with one of the strongest economies in the country. I mean who is UW really competing with outside of the California schools and the occassionally T14 drifter?

US News doesn't really measure any of that stuff anything in a meaningful way.


This seems to be closer to the truth. Quite the racket they have going.

Hot damn! I had a feeling WUSTL was going to fall (no offense to WUSTLers, almost went there myself), but I didn't expect Minnesota to climb back up to the #19 spot. I mean, I don't really give a fuck either way, I was just hoping for something more interesting. I was expecting/hoping for GW to climb up one. If GULC can move up one, and W&L, I assume it's not D.C. itself relative to other markets, but who knows.

poor cold, 53k/ year Cornell :(

California budget crisis fallout: UCLA and Berkeley are now the most expensive law schools in the country (OOS) at over 54k/ year.

Harvard's numbers are really impressive, they got killed in the 9 month employment, looks like they didnt offer enough paid fellowships.

Wow about Stanford > Harvard now :shock:

And how is it that only 91.8% are employed at Yale? Surprising...
