Choosing BU over ASU if you want to be in AZ is ridiculous. Regretting not applying to ASU because of the 2013 rankings is ridiculous.



you're right, i really was eager to get out of ASU/Arizona so it doesn't make sense for me to care. and BU is still ranked better for IP. just expressing frustration. and more pissed that my parents called me this morning and were all "wahhh we told you to apply to ASU"


specialty rankings don't mean shit and your parents are ignorant. however, asu is the better choice for arizona (regardless of these stupid rankings).

I'm sure those of you who have access are tired of requests, but if anyone could post the detailed stats for Richmond it would be greatly appreciated.

Nobody actually believes ASU is as good as BU or better than BC, Davis, etc... except for your parents.

Is there something in the US News access pass that isn't publicly available on schools' websites?

Are your parents academics or on TLS or attorneys? Otherwise, why do they know about the ratings? Or did ASU's ranking boost make local news last night in AZ?

Hmm Pepperdine broke into the top 50...good for them. I can imagine Loyola being a little jealous but it's not like the shift is really going to result in anything tangible. You'd hope their reaction would be "oh...that's cool" but I'm sure they're breaking out the hookers and blow over there at Pepperdine. (That's what they do to celebrate things there, right?)

Not really surprised at Davis losing ground; #23 felt a little inflated.

Regarding the Harvard/Stanford swap: who gives a crap?

I was honestly curious to see if the numbers matched.

USNWR rankings only matter so you can brag to your non-law school friends/family.

"Hey Mom, I go to a Top 25 law school!"
"Yo bro, my law school is ranked 17th in the country." etc.

Observations:
1. Harvard is the only school that lost points. So TTT.
2. The Georgetown Dean deserves a big bonus.
3. The new tiers are clearly Y | SHCCN | BVPM | DNGC.
4. Chicago is catching Columbia - one more year of Rubensteins should do it.


Lol I can't wait until the rubys dry up then chicago can have a nice drop

Not really. W&L has been in the top 25 for most of the last decade.

To be fair, they had a decent stretch where it looked much more like freefall than random variation. And the last 5 years have shown a pretty extreme variation for a school ranked that high.

I would also like to hear some more discussion on the UIUC drop. Is it a big deal? Should one not even consider going there next year?

If you had followed this thread at all, you would have learned that year-to-year fluctuations mean very little. Plus UIUC cooked their data, so the drop was obviously going to happen.

It's a big deal. I head employers in Illinois are refusing to hire their grads. Chicago employers are pulling out of OCI in droves.

It was just 3 years of being ranked 30, 34, 30. For every other year that US News has ranked W&L, it has been T25.

Its sort of nice when your school keeps the same rank it had the year before. Its like being on an island of stability while the legal world around me (as far as students, and mostly 0L's are concerned) goes crazy.
