Vanderbilt feeds into multiple markets- I never understood how WUSTL's placement panned out though. Chicago I guess?


u act like WUSTL places way more into biglaw than UMN for c/o it was 13% to 11% not much of a diff

Does any of it really matter? Numbers are numbers. The location of the school is no excuse because in the end, if a student wants a biglaw job they shouldn't go to a school that has craptastic numbers --be it in NYC or in north dakota.


Obviously if you're biglaw of bust.

I assume Nova's scandal hurts them worse than "honest placement stats."


Didn't their scandal start because they decided to be honest though?


I am pretty sure they flubbed their LSAT and admission numbers. So it'd be being dishonest.

Well I don't know WUSTL's stats that well... I think NLJ 250 % is a bad metric anyways as not all market paying (or near market paying) firms are NLJ 250 anyways.

Dude, USWNR does this because they feel that the people need these rankings. Not to make money. God. They are a charitable organization. We should praise our overlords.

I mean, they still graduate a ridiculously huge class into a saturated market. So not really.


Into a saturated market with a school (GWU) a few places down that also graduates a stupidly big class.

Michigan dropping to #10 would be a shittier birthday present if these rankings mattered.

Right but most schools do that and Villanova decided to self report it. So it's both I guess?

Given how closely packed the 2-6 are, I was wondering if there are structural reasons (due to the arbitrary nature of the rankings/criteria) that might prevent Chicago/Columbia from overtaking, say, Harvard/Stanford. Seeing a new top 3 after two decades would be kinda funny.

Also, I can't believe Harvard's median LSAT is higher than Stanford's 75th.
