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.

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.
