By asking this question you've proven yourself too stupid to finish above median. So worry not my friend.

Oh I share your opinion that rankings don't mean anything. I was just stating the obvious.

We'd be above NYU instantly.


They could probably shoehorn a law school in somewhere on that island. There's what, a few hundred students, a few dozen faculty. Put in some classrooms, an administrative office, and a library. BAM! Law school!

How are people surprised that Stanford is ahead of Harvard? Stanford is better than Harvard and it was ranked ahead of Harvard for like 8 years straight from the late 90s to mid 2000s.

That employment number is low because the people that go to Yale often go on to do other degrees seemingly more often than the other top schools. People pursuing another degree do not count as employed.

That makes sense, though I thought they would calculate that differently (like the number employed out of the number who WANT to be employed).

The fact that I actually care about these stupid rankings makes me depressed.

"#12 Northwestern: 165-171 LSAT, 3.35-3.85 GPA -- 170 and 3.8 medians -- 94% employed after 9 months"

If I had applied fairly early, there's no way I would've been held.

Oh well.

No because, as mentioned previously, US News doesn't matter.

~8% of the class would only need to be ~16 people since their class is so small, glancing at employment stats from last years class 9 were seeking graduate degrees, 3 were "not seeking", and 4 were seeking jobs - so that would be 16, and out of that 16, only 4 would actually be looking for a job.
