right? i thought UIUC would shoot back up eventually


Same. It has decent employment numbers and feeds a pretty strong market. Although, I'm still pretty bitter they are asking a life long resident to pay more to go to UIUC than WUSTL or Minnesota and haven't responded to my first e-mail in almost 2 weeks, so not too concerned.


Source: uncle is a hiring partner at Jones Day in Chicago.

In Chicago, UIUC is still highly regarded among Big Law firms, regardless of ranking. They don't really care about the scandal with the dean that made them plummet.


I hope it didn't sound like I was saying anything different! I would have thought the fact that it is still well regarded, and its employment numbers aren't horrible, would help it bounce back. For instance, UIUC's (44) employment score is basically the same as Wake (36) and Indiana (30), and its biglaw+fedclerk score blows those two out of the water, but the difference in ranking persists.


Oh no, I was basically giving you a +1, lol. Sorry if I came off as rude! I have no idea why Indiana is above Illinois. The scandal is years old at this point.

Nothing is sacred anymore in this post-2016 era. Trump is president, Cubs are WS champs, and the t14 has been toppled. Is it any coincidence GT falls off this year?

I bet GW is kicking itself...for the first time in history, it could've been on roughly the same tier as GULC but nope. Dropped 5 spots.

University of Chicago kids send Columbia students a card which explains the efficiency of this outcome using the Coase Theorem and a picture of the teletubbies in front of Goldman Sachs.

GULC promising to push a new environmentally conscious angle - after a brief window for last minute hiring post-graduation, all leftover grads will now be humanely destroyed and composted.

Georgetown out of the Top 14. Now Top 13. Lots of reversals of top schools like Harvard and Stanford. 13 reversed is 31. Georgetown blew a 3-1 lead.

Judge Judy's alma mater, New York Law School, falls from #111 to unranked!! This will not stand.

I sure hope the Berkeley kids speak truth to power and write some crunchy protest songs about the rankings.

It doesn't really matter because a lot of people mistake NYLS with NYU Law....

My quick read is that once again the exact same schools remain in the top half of the T14 and the change for the bottom half is that UT replaces Georgetown at 14.

Where are the other rankings posted?

Have some respect for the prestigious Law Center, please...

Also, looks like the former dean scandal is still affecting UIUC. Their BL + Fed Clerk is better than many schools ranked 20-30.

If prospective schools have dropped in the rankings, is it wise to ask the admissions office their response?

A significant drop doesn't warrant a response? Not trying to board a sinking ship, or have my prospective law school freefall in the rankings over the course of the coming years.

This should probably be pertinent to negotiations. I think a prospective GW student would leverage the drop for more $$$.

Ask away, but it's not wise. Nor is it necessarily unwise.
Each school probably has a drafted response.

Yeah, I saw that too -- interesting that UCLA is now about halfway b/w Berkeley and USC.

Berkeley 12
UCLA 15
USC 19

Calexit is reverberating throughout the law school community. Chemerinsky has some work ahead of him.
