It should be a new specialty ranking category.

I'm a student at the Yale Law School in Connecticut...things are absolutely out of control here. Students dancing on tables, throwing hornbooks at each other, stripping their tees off and running up and down Wall Street in a maddened frenzy. Dean Post kicked in the door to the dining hall (where the most raucous of the gadabouts were cavorting) and demanded silence, only to slam a boombox on the ground and triumphantly proclaim "You mad, Minow?" The music poured forth from the speakers like elixir from the Fountain of Youth:

The party rages on..as I write prestigious legal minds continue to hoot and holler into the New Haven night

I swear, every year one of the Big Ten schools that is not Mich or NU makes a jump into the top 25 then drops the next year.

It is like they all take a turn.

Wisconsin
Iowa
Illinois
Indiana
Minnesota gets its turn this year.

Next year will probably go to Ohio State.

This is the thing. The ABA created new rules and no one followed them. Our school did because our dean is like ABA chair elect of the law school division or something, so we're at 80%. Our peers conveniently missed the memo about the new standards and continue to report 95%+. All of our data is the same or better than 2011, but we dropped 5 spots because we followed new protocol.

USNWR and the ABA suck. Thankfully this rankings shit is meaningless.

TBF even that 80% number is probably shit.

Again, how did WUSTL report, what were the new standards. Right now you've basically offered some conclusion, but im curious as to what exactly your dean meant by the new standards.
