GULC's medians are ALREADY on par with many of the schools ranked higher, so I suspect that something other than admissions statistics is at play.
You're really just conjecturing here in a way that I don't think is very helpful.
One of the evidences is that the USNWR ranking combines both the incoming FT and PT stats. If only the FT stats are used, GULC's ranking may be higher (again, nothing against PTs. These are just numbers).
USNWR only included PT stats on their rankings on their last rankings. Gtown has been 14 for years.
You meant FT stats, right? Interesting to know.
Yea, sorry my wording was ambiguous. I mean they only included PT this last year. Notice that Gtown didn't fall.
