Why should law school students care about leaked rankings. For that matter, why would anyone care?

Nada.

But I can't personally wait to enjoy the frenzy like last year with the devoted TLS member hailing a cab to Grand Central at 3am in search of the rankings. :D

whatttt? details please.
also, I want to see the new rankings because I'm trying to decide which school I want and something like that will influence me (eg. if my 30k scholly school dropped I don't want it, if it went up a bit I feel like it has more promise)...I realize it's one year and not that big of a difference...but it makes the decision easier.

A TLS member heard that there was an official copy of the rankings at Penn Station, and took a cab there at like 3am or some crazy time like that, all while updating the TLS board via Blackberry. The magazine was indeed there, which was like a week early I believe.

Last year around this time I believe, most of us was conjuring up possible rankings and some newbie poster created an account stating that he was in Grand Central or Penn Station ( I forgot which) and stated he saw a newsstand carrying the Holy Grail USNWR mag. Long story short, our beloved Fordham Princess, OperaSoprano became a cultural icon that morning because she hopped into a cab purchased the magazine and posted the rankings with screenshots within the hour. Seriously, it was phenomenal.

Usually these are done with little to no awareness of longer-term trends, and even when people are aware of those trends, they still read far, far too much into small changes in the current year.

Not based on. Just helping.

If you have two choices and this year's USNWR rankings help you make your choice, you are basing your choice largely upon this year's rankings. Your distinction between based on and helping is like splitting hairs.

Well... to base something on something else is usually construed as using that something else as the driving incentive to make that decision. Helping does not necessarily equate to this.

looking forward to seeing employment numbers for the CO 2008. sure many in that class at T20 schools were hired in ~August of 2007 (pre-ITE) but for TT schools the data, I think, is more telling because many TT students find employment around graduation or (*gasp*) after graduation.
