By their very nature, Part-Time programs are less selective, but selectivity ratings count as a quarter of the USNews score. Georgetown's stats for selectivity are already better than Cornell's (and a couple others that I can't remember off the top of my head) in LSAT and comparable to them for GPA. Problem is, if they took out the Part-Time program scores in coming up with those numbers, then Georgetown's selectivity rating would be even hgher. Now I didn't bother trying to do the math, but I'd guess that if they completely separated Part-Time scores from full-time when rating the law schools (because no other T-14 school has one) then Georgetown would vault easily over Cornell and would likely be tied with Virginia.
I might be wrong, but didn't GW's rank fall 8 spots once they began including PT numbers in the ranking? And then climbed back up this year because they made their part time program just as difficult to get in to as their FT program?
Did Georgetown make any adjustment to their PT median numbers in a way similar to GW? If they did that this year, I imagine next year we would see a jump.
