schools around the T50-T70 bracket who bump their lsat averages up and drop their GPA scholarship stipulations should just auto raise in the rankings. Seems more meaningful than what the judge opinion 1/5 questionnaire can give prospective students.

I've seen scattered reports around that several schools (between 7 and 12) have seen increased apps this year. Anyone know if there's a list somewhere? My google-fu isn't working for me. I'd be interested to see if there is any correlation to employment data, cost, etc.

There are a lot of posts on this thread considering nobody cares about USNWR.

I'm not sure if this is what you are referring to, but if so, it simply states that applications haven't dropped as much as they have been in recent years, and not necessarily that they have increased (or even leveled out).


A few articles I've read online have talked about schools seeing application increases:

Only seven schools are showing any increase in applications.

Duke University Law School is one of them.

“The majority of schools have experienced declines well over 10 percent,” Dean David Levi recently wrote to the law school community. But “our applications are up over this time last year. Let us hope this augurs well for the remainder of the admissions season.”

With that season coming to a close with the application deadline Friday, applications to Duke are generally running “up 1-2 percent over last year,” said William Hoye, the law school’s associate dean for admissions. “We generally receive a surge of applications in the two weeks prior to the deadline, so I expect that our 2013 volume will be up slightly over last year or just about even.”

I found another article but on second reading it was referring to the previous cycle. I'm just curious if there's a list of schools with application increases this cycle.

all 6 are probably ranked higher. I suspect Berkeley is one of them, on their twitter page they brag about how they were swamped with applications. Yale probably is one of them and so on. Michigan and Virginia probably were not because of the weaker job employments..

(Click here for a summary of the calculations.)

*We still don't know how USNWR is going to treat school-paid jobs, so I made one chart for each possible outcome (inclusion versus exclusion).


That's awesome...can you calculate those for the entire T30?

This was more fun last year when everyone just guessed at what the rankings would be. I miss being an 0L and caring about the rankings. It just doesnt matter once you get there.

Gonna need to ask him to do T50 for ASU to show up this year :lol:

kappycaft1 did you give the same weight to outcomes as USNWR has used in the past? I thought I read somewhere that the weight is gonna be much more significant this year too but I could be making that up.
