Are you ready? OFFICIAL US NEWS 2011 RANKING

Postby Ranking2011 » Thu Apr 08, 2010 4:16 pm

OK so after I got your attention, ranking lovers, I'll ask you to help me make a decision because I am soooo confused: SMU or Brooklyn Law? I want to practice in Lansing, Michigan.

Edited to reflect reality.

P.S. I ma surprised no one commented on my #9, where the schools weren't in alphabetical order and on TTT Vandy being T14 hahahaha

You do realize that if we can't objectively verify the rankings they serve us no purpose, even if they turn out to be correct? That was rhetorical because you're obviously just a sorry excuse for a Georgetown troll...

If the rankings were any good, Columbia would be above Stanford.

Lol at Michigan beating out or Virginia tying with Penn. Also lol at Virginia beating NU when NU topped the NLJ250 rankings. I'm going to 2nd (or 3rd or whatever) the BS call.

Cooley is and never will be a top 30 school. From my understanding they a fourth tier law school. It crime that they have on their website them in the top 20 not sure how they did that.

I like these. Makes me feel better about the fact that I will likely attend my lowest ranked choice.

Illinois beating Notre Dame, Minn, BU and Boston College seems pretty far fetched, but we'll see.

:roll: No, obviously I know it's not included, but that doesn't mean that placement in the NLJ250 is completely irrelevant to the rankings.

The movements within the T12 were believable. Cornell dropping several points to tie with UCLA/Vandy... not so much.

That depends to which decimal place you round to. Is it 100.0% irrelevant, or 99.96% irrelevant?
