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.


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.

I am applying for transfer to GW and there is no way that GW's number is accurate. I would be shocked if 94% of the graduates are employed at nine months.

We are all clearly under fewer delusions than USNAWR is. These rankings are ridiculous. Emory and W&L: 24?!?!? What the heck??

Ya. So. How is Berkeley not out of the top 10 or even 14? They have tied for the lowest peer review and the lowest medians of any of the schools. Do they inefficiently spend tons of money on each student? With their tuition being the highest of all the schools, and the state of CA in general, it would not be entirely surprising.

TBF even that 80% number is probably shit.

Conveniently the exact same argument Emory used last year.
