Guess they couldn't even commit fraud correctly. Reflects poorly on their career services staff. Next year they might want to hire Pless as a consultant.

Also, can anyone explain to me how Washington and Lee ends up 23? They are about the 4th best law school in a massively over-saturated state....

I'd put them as a tie for #2 in Virginia.

Long story, been discussed before, let's not get into it here.

Suffice to say, can't change it now.



k. sorry for your troubles/pless.


Thanks for the sympathy. Yeah... we're all sorry here too. But, eh, things'll work out. I'm lucky enough to be in a position where I'm still going to have pretty good options, as many of us here still are. We'll just have to hustle a bit harder to get those options.

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


STOP. Does not compute.

C/H tied for 3rd next year?

It's craziness that 22 schools shifted at least 8 spots (one way or another). It's like they throw the names in a hat and pick at random

True, but I don't really mean tied in a specific metrics sense. I'd put them on par with W&M overall in terms of reputation.


Complete disclosure, I don't know a damn thing about anywhere except for the Richmond market. I'd say in Richmond W&M would have a slight edge over W&L, but ymmv.

What is US News' methodology behind the "Graduates known to be employed at graduation" stat? If grads don't report data, are they assumed unemployed? Or does this stat simply disregard them?

Because many of these schools are probably working with only 50 percent feedback.
