If you're talking about me, I'm not a dude and I didn't start any thread. I just posted links to a USNWR article that said that PT stats might be included in the overall rankings, and I basically got torn a new asshole for that.

Oh, LOL, I started a whole thread about the stupidest arguments on TLS because of that. I couldn't even follow what you guys were arguing about. Anyway, congrats on being right. :)

Still, I think T18 is probably close to as useful a category as T14.


do you think pt admissions standards are going to change next year, like i was suggesting?


I honestly have no idea. I think it's natural for them to change once they're being used as backdoors rather than as night school, but I don't really know what that'll look like. The sense I've gotten is that alums of part-time programs tend to see them as egalitarian and democratizing and that this may be a stronger force of institutional intertia than USNWR is for a change in admissions standards.

Why I didn't just buy the magazine myself:
1. I'm an idiot.
2. $4 short... damn it.
3. I didn't have any access to the internet and hadn't been online in a couple of days. Being as the mag was just sitting there, I figured I would get home to find the rankings posted somewhere anyway (and did the text-message myself thing just in case).
4. I've certainly been looking forward to the rankings myself, I just didn't realize that this info would alter the course of humanity.
5. Perhaps, at some level, I foresaw the insanity that would unfold as a result of my incomplete, hard-to-believe post. This whole situation really was pretty wild.
6. I looked greatness in the eye, and I turned away... I TURNED AWAY! (ok, I suppose this isn't a reason, just a random statement inserted into the reasons list.)

Much love to Opera and all those who had my back from the onset. To those who didn't.. well, if not for the skeptics we would have all believed some ridiculous fake list posted a month ago and then felt like buffoons on the 23rd. Now you know never to doubt message board posters named after a family of fitness-conscious Seinfeld characters.

I would also like to publicly apologize, in advance, to all the women who will be subjected to whatever pick up line I concoct from this zany situation... it's never gonna work, but I'll be damned if I don't keep on trying.

So, are Hofstra, 'Zaga and U of Maine T-2 or T-3? They're listed as both...

They do that every year. Look at Syracuse for this past year's ranking- it's listed as T2 and T3.

Anyone else think its funny that San Diego beat out Loyola in the PT rankings?

Doesn't Loyola like to brag about having the "best PT program in California"?

Damn. Cool 100% at-graduation employment rate for Stanford, and 94% CA bar pass rate.

Still, S slipped behind H once again this year though... probably due to mediocre LSAT 25/75?

Yet both H and S gained further total score distance from C (which stayed the same)?

Ahhhh, rankings. =)

Cornell is the most diverse T14 :shock: Crazy, I always heard Cornell had issues luring minorities to Ithaca.
