No, my year's (2015) baseline was $20k for median+ LSAT, I think.
ETA: Just saw this over on ATL. Not sure how much credit law school funded positions receive, but it's probably more than none.
"For the 2016 edition of the Best Law Schools rankings, U.S. News has changed its methodology so that law schools receive less credit for employing their own new graduates.
Starting with this year’s rankings, law schools with large percentages of graduates who hold jobs funded by the law school or university typically will rank lower than they would have if those jobs had been at law firms or in government.
For new J.D. graduates, being employed by their law school or holding a university-funded job is less desirable than being employed more permanently in a law firm, in government or in a corporation."'

The 5 point difference in overall score between Vandy (74/100) and WUSTL (69/100) is the largest difference in the rankings.
