Why? It won't have an effect on anything.


Bull fucking shit. DROVES of employers are waiting on Fordham movement. Stop with the misinformation, asshat.


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


"top 20" or "top 30" isn't a thing

there is no meaningful difference between the 19th ranked school and the 35th ranked school in any given year

I think we all knew (feared?) that our fundamental perception of the respective prestige of our nation's legal institutions would one day change. And that day is today. I am trembling.

So if my school dropped, should I drop out now or gamble that it'll get back up before 3L OCI

Neither. You should do everything in your power to transfer to Emory.

This is a tough question to answer, my friend. Look, so maybe Michigan will be lucky to get biglaw now, but you have to face facts: sunk costs make dropping a hasty choice. If I were you, I would get to networking. You just need to be prepared to fight your way out of the shithole.

Forget Penn. This was Penn's one great chance to break into the hallowed CCN tier, but it choked. With declining NLJ250 numbers (along with the increasing number of hysterical anecdotes from median Penn 2Ls who struck out at OCI), Penn will be lucky to avoid the embarrassment of being tied with Duke.

If you don't understand by now, then I doubt anyone could explain it to you. We're talking seismic shifts here. Stanford in decline, Michigan teetering on the brink of T10 extinction, USC becoming the GW of Los Angeles, Emory rocketing towards T14 (dare I say T10?) status....the world is changing, Mal Reynolds. You best hold on for the ride.

Ignore him. The slow moving intellects of the world, a la Mel, will never understand the impact of these things because they are not in his backyard. That's why he goes to Dayton.
