New Rankings?

Postby checkster » Sun Jan 29, 2012 9:31 pm

Tried to find this online, couldn't find a solid response.

When are the new USNWR rankings released?

Last year was April, I assume it'll be the same this year.

The release of the new rankings will also mean absolutely nothing outside of helping to start more shit threads on TLS.

Ok. Just wondering if it would be in time to factor it in for this years cycle...guess not.

It would be a horrible idea to factor in year to year fluctuations in the USNWR into your law school choice.

Right, obviously. Just curious, my regional school (Missouri) fell just out of the top 100 last year. Obviously the next years ranking s won't affect my decision, but it would be nice to see the school bump back up into T100 if I decide to attend.

Basically, yeah. I'm obviously not taking rankings really into consideration on any school I applied to outside of the top 50. Its just been unfortunate that during my time in undergrad a school I had always had on my short list has dropped from 65 to out of T100. No biggie though, not really affecting the reputation of the school in the state, people know what Mizzou is or isn't. And its still not for sure that I'll go there, for the obvious limitations of the school.
