i'm gonna bump this and see if anyone knows with any more certainty when these will be out? the suspense is sort of getting to me, especially since many of the schools i applied to are on the 40s/50s cusp, significant changes will definitely have an effect on my decision making...

Cooley just released their rankings. I can't see USNWR being much different from those.

I think it would be foolish to completely ignore the ramifications of the US News rankings since a lot of people in the legal field do care about it...but don't let it make one of the biggest decisions of your life.

T-14 has been the same since forever, everything else is based on the reputation in the region. UNSWR doesnt change regional reputations
