Where can I find new rankings?

Where can I find new rankings? All of the googling I've done just gives me last years.

Re: Two Ws and a B last semester - will H/Y care?

Have you already been accepted and you are worried they might possibly revoke the acceptance after you submit your updated transcript? If so, I wouldn't worry about it, but I would probably include a brief explanation or at least an acknowledgment when you submit your grades.

If you haven't applied yet, I would definitely include an addendum when you do explaining why you withdrew from TWO classes your last semester and underperformed in another. Having said that, as long as you have a good enough LSAT and solid LORs, with your GPA I wouldn't be too worried about the W's.

Thanks. Looks like I was using the wrong ranking system.

What is your LSAT score? If you don't have one yet then this is a pointless discussion

Just curious for now. It's not something I am obsessing over.

Batting about 171. Expecting a 175+ as it appears I have finally gotten to a point where I feel very comfortable with the logic games, leaving me with sufficient time to perfect the other sections where I was stronger.

Taking the LSAT in June.

Wow nice LSAT Score! From Seoul? 8)

I would say no if it were just the B, but with two W's I think schools, especially the most elite schools in the country, are going to want an explanation. Especially because the W's coincided with underperformance relative to your other semesters. But again, let me reiterate that this is obviously a great gpa and with an equally great LSAT you should have a great chance at getting in to at least one of HYS.

Yeah, I always figure maximum disclosure is best. Admissions officers aren't going to dock you for including additional information about a couple things that are minor but potentially confusing if omitted. They may dock you if they see red flags without explanation or any addendum to reveal them as unimportant.
