Agreed. Given that Columbia and Chicago were tied at #4 last year, it seemed very unlikely that the two schools would tie again. If history has taught us anything, it is that the top 10 of the USNWR rankings are characterized by wildly unpredictable changes from year to year. Kudos to the posters who saw CLS and Chicago as an anchor of stability amid a sea of tumult.

So, with Emory's inevitable rise and its subsequent re-establishment of the antibellum south, how should one prepare for both law school and the dominance of cotton crops?

Duke can't Krzyzewski its way out of Emory's meteoric rise. DROVES of corpses littered beside its path to New Haven.

'cause they were stuck in the "tier" mentality. Couldn't fathom the idea of Penn not being "more like" CC vs. more like V

Doubt I missed it, but has anyone heard something on Fordham? Hoping it bumped up a decent amount.

Seriously, my numbers are getting me into the schools ranging from 20-30 (waiting on top 20 schools) but there is a decent chance I choose Fordham over the schools in that 20-30 range because of its NY roots. Fordham often outperforms those schools in its employment statistics, and those employment numbers would go up even further the more Fordham can climb up the ranks.... NY is kinda the legal center of the world
