If I didn't know any better, I'd think these rankings were based on an arbitrary valuation system that varies from year to year based on statistical noise.

My lifelong streak of choosing the wrong line at the toll booth, grocery, store, etc., continues unblemished.

Florida is back ahead of FSU. I'm sure that's a sigh of relief for their administration

And yet there it is. THE University of Texas School of Law. Aka the Big Dog. Standing alone. Right there. On the cusp of the T14. Waiting for Michigan and GULCs final death spiral.

Soon bros, soon. Our work is almost done here.

You obviously don't understand the implications of a jump from 93 to 76.

Seriously? Dude, you actually spent time posting about the nuances of the "sub-tiers" within the T14, and now you're mocking this poster for asking about a school he's interested in? What a douche.

I wonder how much, if any, year to year shifts influence transfer chances.

Dunno. Experienced adcoms probably have their own feel for each school or something.

We are wasting our precious time discussing US News rankings. There are no winners.

I thought you were mocking someone for their interest in a lower-ranked school. I was already inclined to think you were a dick because, in another thread, you mocked the English usage of a non-native speaker. In this case, though, I can see why you reacted as you did to the post of a HLS admit. It makes sense in context. Criticism withdrawn.

You spent your entire day drinking smoothies and moving your desk around? Where do you teach?

Aren't the Penn State campuses finally separate? Does USNWR keep them together still or has State College fallen off the Top 100 completely?

Yeah I mean I'm figuring for transfer admissions, schools that took from Wake before aren't going to look at Wake students differently this year for instance.

It looks like based on their 509 and ranking that they're still together on paper, but dropped from 51 to 71. Next year looks to be the first where they're completely separate. I'm curious to see how they'd rank separate; Dickinson has the history and is closer to a job market, but State College has more institutional backing and the "Penn State" name.
