Keep in mind that those who respond are ultimately about as responsible for the ensuing clusterfuck as the instigator is.

OK, I'll play. Is anyone at all surprised the T14 remained relatively stable and without infiltration?

Michigan jumped to T6. That's hardly a sign of stability.

Not me. I'm a little surprised Boalt stayed sixth, though. Also glad that Chicago is no longer suffering the indignity of being tied with Penn and ranked below Boalt.

T13

GULC, while still 14, is a lot closer now in overall score to the TTT15s+17, of which I am a part :D

Well, obviously that's just a correction that everyone assumed was inevitable.

OMG, I was mildly amused at Sixigan's postings up until this one... because this one made me laugh out loud in great amusement! :D

Love the persistence. Kudos.

i don't understand the new rankings...

why is penn state listed twice? I see it at #8, which is pretty respectable for a state school. But its' also at #65. What gives, US News?

What? I really don't get it. Does it mean that Penn State has like... two law schools? I figure since they have different campuses in different cities, they could have a law school in Philly.

I'll bite.

Penn State is not University of Pennsylvania.

Penn >>>> Penn State.

Very different animal, hence the distance in their rankings (not a duplication).

I don't get it... no matter where you put the "University" in the name, it's still Penn State Law School, right?

I think it's proof that the rankings are rigged... seeing how a school gets on there twice.

I'm pretty sure that Michigan, at #6, is better than UPenn State Law School.

Sixigan, STTTanford has taken somewhat of a nosedive (how it's be described to me) to the #3 position. Many students of that TTT have already made their deposits and are now worried about a further downward tumble. Does Michigan have any aspirations taking over that coveted 3rd spot?

Samford has always been a TTT. What we're seeing in the USNews is a gradual progression toward Mich becoming a member of the holy trinity, as it rightfully was when the rankings were first concocted.

The gradualness is merely present to make students of lesser schools less prone to their suicidal tendencies.

I'm gonna have to agree with you... why the hell is Upenn State ranked above Michigan this year? Michigan has better architecture, professors, and name recognition. Upenn, on the other hand, is some podunk school in State College, isn't it?

I do have to say that Upenn State has a great football team, though. It's good to see two Big 10 schools in the law school top 10.
