The Fordham numbers in the spreadsheet are only full time students: http://law.fordham.edu/admissions/23526.htm

I'm pretty sure non-full time students don't count anyway.

For the 2014 edition of Best Law Schools, U.S. News continued the same main law school rankings methodology that was used in the 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 editions for admissions data. We used the combined 2012 class admissions data for both full-time and part-time entering students for the median LSAT scores, median undergraduate grade-point averages, and the acceptance rate in calculating the school's overall ranking.

It's actually pretty impressive that Georgetown can post the numbers it does, given its part-time program, student body size, and employment numbers.

Most of that isn't going to the law school.

Just in case you get the idea that medians have anything more than a spurious correlation with whether or not you will get a jerb.


Georgetown is becoming a trap school.

Feels like some of these schools are thinking "If we just don't announce medians this year, maybe no one will notice?"

Are you so sure he was talking about GTown? Their numbers on LST clearly put that at 43% combined Biglaw and FedClerk. And for all the shit GTown gets, I feel like that's still substantially better than pretty much anything not T14. Even great schools like Vandy or UCLA or Texas simply did not breach 40% last year.

Yeah, nothing is coming from the TTTTs. I'm not sure if it's like this every year. I wonder how much longer until a school goes below a 140 median.

Would you look at the drop in the size of that 1L class! Really tightening the belt there (though why they ever had a class of 800 anyway is beyond me).
