Maybe my bold prediction is right. I have Michigan dropping out of the top-25 entirely and Michigan State moving into a tie at number 11.

Yeah probably should have double checked my entry...

Which incidentally is a good thing because I have been up since 4:45am waiting and started doing pushups around 6am to kill the time.

UCI breaks in at #30!

I'll keep tweeting the rest when I get it.

That's very impressive and a little surprising. UNC, Wisconsin, BC, Fordham, etc. students will soon be gathering on the streets for demonstrations against US News.

TLS: With regard to ranking: As a brand-new law school, UCI faces an uphill struggle to become highly-ranked; however UCI has made a clear impression that they intend to do so (and quickly). Realistically, how soon do you see UCI Law competing with UC Davis, UC Hastings, and even UCLA and USC in the rankings?

Chemerinsky: Our goal is that we will be a top 20 law school, by every measure, from the moment we open our doors and from our first rankings. I am firmly convinced we will succeed. The first step in achieving this was to recruit a founding faculty who came from top 20 schools. Our ten founding faculty who arrived in July 2008 included individuals such as Dan Burk (from Minnesota), Catherine Fisk (from Duke), Carrie Hempel (from USC), Trina Jones (from Duke), Carrie Menkel-Meadow (from Georgetown), Rachel Moran (from University of California, Berkeley), Ann Southworth (from Case Western), Grace Tonner (from Michigan), and Henry Weinstein (adjunct at USC). A measure of the quality of our founding faculty is that University of Chicago Law Professor Brian Leiter, on his influential blog, ranked UCI Law School’s as tied for tenth in the country in scholarly impact. We have seven additional, terrific faculty arriving July 1.

The next step in achieving top 20 status is recruiting students of the caliber of a top 20 school. We have done this. Our goal was an entering class of 60 students. We received over 2,700 applications and accepted 110. 68 accepted our offer of admission. Their median LSAT is 167 and median GPA is 3.65. This is a class that would certainly rank in the top 20 of all law schools and is quite comparable to schools like UCLA, Texas, and Vanderbilt.

With faculty and students of top 20 caliber, it is now quite realistic to see ourselves as being a top 20 school from the outset.


sorry dean

Still really impressive that they pulled off top 30. It will probably be the highest ranking UCI will ever attain, however. You have to imagine its medians will drop substantially as soon as their class sizes increase to a sustainable number.

Shoulda gotten 4 monitors and stayed home for this big event : 1 monitor on TLS, 1 on Spivey's twitter, 1 for tracking any mention of usnwr on the dark webbies, and 1 for Facebook.
