:lol: I didn't get to bed until 2am left-coast time. My wife got up and looked at me dazed and I just told her "high-internet drama... them kids and their rankings", she smiled and went back to sleep.

Hey, for us, this is all high drama. Everybody who's anybody in the attorney/law school/internet world knows who OperaSoprano is now! :D

Good Evening Dr. Saprano! You raised yourself a fine young lady there. Be proud mom. You did your job well. :wink:

My dad has insomnia and at around 2:30 a.m. last night he walked into my room because he saw the light on, and he asked: "Don't you have to work tomorrow" I started telling him while i was still up, but before I was done with my story he had already walked out. No one in my family cares about TLS drama. **sighs**

Of course Alabama would move up in the rankings after I withdraw from them...to think I could have gone to a t-30 school, and now I'm hoping to get off a WL at a #35.

if you think you made a sincere mistake and really want to go, try talking to them. Explain your reasoning and renewed committment. They'll probably say no, but its worth a shot.

I can now officially confirm Opera's rankings :) I think we all trusted Opera, but in case there were any doubters, I got my copy of US News today (the standard magazine, not the separate ranking issue). It includes the basic ranking info, and confirms Opera's report of the rankings.

Nice, when is the Best Grad Schools issue expected to hit newsstands that aren't in Penn Station?

I went to a newsstand about a block away from my house in Brooklyn, and found the magazine this morning. I asked the guy at the register what day he had started selling the magazine. The reply: Thursday 16th. :?

I think I bought a different issue/edition than Opera's though. Mine doesn't have the salary listings on the back of the magazine and I think the cover is different. I tried looking for the cover picture Geoanthem posted to compare it but I think it was taken down.

I know this is not a popular subject on here, but does anyone have the T3 and T4 rankings...?

If so can you please post the link.

Thanks!

I had to take the images down, and I never had a chance to type them out. Is there a specific school you would like to know about?

Thanks in advance!

NYLS is a T3, and Suffolk did fall to T4. :shock:

I'd still pick Suffolk.

*stares at rankings*

FTR, Suffolk's LSAT range is the highest in the T4. Assessment scores don't seem to warrant this, either.

What happened?

Yeah, probably everywhere but Brooklyn Heights.
