I, too, was puzzled by this, but it makes sense if you examine the underlying numbers. Cornell took a major hit on the judges' assessment score, while GULC began spending money on a major bathroom renovation project.

For one, they had the exact same peer assessment score and the exact same assessment by judges/lawyers score.

But I wonder why those scores would suddenly change when they've been pretty consistent before

If Cooley's not in the top 5, then the list is a complete joke.

(If the list is not a complete joke --> Cooley is in the top 5)

IIRC- The US News goons use a different set of #s each year (sometimes medians, sometimes 25/75th).

Also, isn't this the first year that schools had to report the employment data the same way?

There should absolutely be a "Guess Cooley's law school rankings" contest

Any word on schools outside the t20? (Not that they matter at all - the schools and their rankings!)

I am putting my belief in the ATL rankings, where UT is rightfully a T14. The only upbeat news from USNWR is that our rankings rival V, fell -1.

Prediction wise I nailed the top 7 (although I thought P would tie NY)… had Duke in the top 10 and noted that Mich would fall (but thought 11, not a 10 tie).

It's hard to argue with that. If you attend UT or Penn, then the ATL rankings are objectively superior. But if you attend NYU or GULC, then the USNWR rankings are objectively superior. It's exactly like Schrodinger's paradox--except you replace "cat" with "law school" and "conscious observer" with "aspie law student."
