Wait can I edit mine? I wanted Yale to be #1, but I fucked up the obvious somehow by tying YLS and HLS with HLS in front.

Yup, just start over and post a new entry. Robb's program will detect the more recent entry and replace the older one with it. When I did it, I opened the post with my old entry in another window while I filled out the new one so I didn't have to re-think it.

LST prob would become the new US News

Also, can somebody explain to me the why behind Peer Assessment. It sounds like the dumbest thing, but apparently it's weighted to be 1/4 of the ranking metric.

Employer assessment makes more sense, since they're the ones offering jobs. Why do we care what HLS faculty thinks of CLS vs Penn?

If the USNWR rankings were like 75% LST employment score and 25% some combination of the other nonsense they care about, I'd be pretty happy

But I mean how much does TLS really care about the rankings anyways? They are fairly accurate for the T14 and such, and T14 and strong regionals are the predominant schools TLSers are looking at.

Oh no, I agree. I'd just love to have some policy discussion or something ITT as a backdrop to the entries so I'm shooting from the hip.

I'd be interested to see a USNWR regional ranking like I think they do for UG's. Like:

The Southeast
1. Yale
_. Harvard
3. Virginia
4. Duke
5. Columbia
6. Penn

Ok yeah that would be more interesting. Plus idk I don't think that USNWR will ever fall for law schools mainly because of their grip over the UG scene. If they were replaced by something better for UGs then I could see things changing up in the law school realm, but otherwise nah. Plus again damn ATL rankings using SCOTUS placement and cost really screwed their attempt up.

I also think it should be mandatory that pre-law advisors show kids LST slash know about LST. I email one of my old professors a lot and showed him LST, and he was like holy shit I'm sending this to the pre-law guy b/c kids need to know this. People are slowly starting to realize that law school isn't a great investment generally, but still if you don't put all of the numbers in front of someone they can easily try to rationalize it away.

umm people who see the numbers still try to rationalize it bro. really won't make that big of a difference. also the word is out that law school is a shit investment, people are still doing it because they think they'll be the exception. No way to change that.

Seems to be quite a bit of respect for Duke in here. Not complaining, but curious as to why people feel that way? Is it mostly just that people think Michigan and Berkeley are going to slide a bit?
