9. GULC could cut 100 kids from it's total class size and would be in the top 12, they should do that

"School Mayor" probably should have tipped you off, although in fairness I wouldn't expect a law school to be called a "Law Center," either.

No one finds #5 problematic? Also #7?
#9 would have happened already if they could afford it, Michigan did. My guess is they don't care enough to try to fight for a place or they know it's impossible.

Clearly there were only 11 good students. No wonder they dropped out of the T14

Chicago passed Columbia because it's higher job placement and bar pass rate. Simple.

There are multiple schools that should be above Michigan at this point and aren't. USNWR does not put enough emphasis on job outcomes!

Well I for one am unphased and still thrilled about my acceptance to Georgetown. They have a great international law program and clinics.
