Can we do like an Oscar ballot thing where we all guess the T20 and whoever gets closest wins a DVD copy of Paper Chase free ticket to see Admissions or something?

Does anyone have any clue on whether they're gonna take out or factor in out school-funded jobs for their employment stats?

No. There is currently nothing that says how these jobs will be factored into each school's employment scores. (It will be hard to differentiate between legit ones and shitty cover-up ones, so my guess is that they will all be included as part of the long-term, full-time, JD-required positions.)


this favors UVA and who else the most

Anyone see this yet? Or am I late to the party.....

"In less than a month, on March 12, 2013, U.S. News will publish the 2014 edition of the Best Graduate Schools rankings on usnews.com....In the 2014 edition, we made a change in the law school rankings methodology used to compute placement rates for 2011 J.D. graduates employed at graduation and nine months after graduation. We also changed how we computed admissions selectivity in the full-time and part-time MBA rankings.

All the other rankings methodologies remain unchanged from the 2013 edition. Detailed explanations of all the methodologies will be available online on March 12.
"

Looks like they are going to change how they facor in school-funded rates. I cant think of another change in computing placement rates...

I dont think so, like others are saying, how will they know which of these school funded gigs are good and which are just covering up the people who cannot get jobs?

To be honest, I am SHOCKED at how high that is for UVA. As a 1L I dont know that many 2Ls, but every single one I do know is going to biglaw this summer. Even have one friend who is in bottom 10% going to biglaw (market salary) and he is not a URM. I guess I just dont see it...
