that's why it's a leak


Or maybe if you actually clicked on the link and read the original post, you would notice that the OP claims the box said do not open till March 18th.

I don't visit autoadmit from this computer, dude.

ok, that's reasonable. would've pasted if someone hadn't already

Thanks for posting this though. Like I said, it's always fun. :D

glancing at last year's makes the leak seem reasonable. berkeley only had to go up one point (obviously) and ucla as well. Northwestern only needed to drop one....

whoever posted this on autoadmit has a sense of humor, to say the least.

Code: Select all

yea, its always the same story. how about some variety?

like.. "I was fucking this big tittied brazilian girl and we knocked over this random box in the janitor's closet. Inside were stacks of the U.S. news rankings. I had a permanent marker but couldn't write on myself since I was wearing a suit so I wrote down the top 18 on the hooker's titties. Did I mention she was a hooker? Anyways I got her to email me what i wrote down."

xoxo had the exact same thing last year. Same story about walmart, same BS.

no way UCLA reaches T14 the peer assessment and judges scores are not high enough.

Should have been apparent immediately. I'll believe it when I see UChi below BoalTTT on USNWR's site for any reason other than alphabetical ordering.

They're substantial in the calculations. But NW also has a low median GPA due to taking tons of work-experience splitters, and its selectivity is declining because fewer people fresh from undergrad are applying. NW's strategy of requiring work experience is definitely carving out a niche for the school, but that strategy also kills its competitiveness in the rankings. We'll see if NW decides that rankings are more important than its niche in the long run.

No guarantee that these are accurate, however.

I'm sure there were people that never believed they would be tied.

That's weird. My cousin (who also stocks shelves at Wal-Mart, ironically) sent me this leaked list, and I'd tend to believe him since he just graduated from the 12th best law school in the country.

1) Harvard University
2) Georgetown University
3) New York University
4) University of Virginia
5) University of Texas
6)University of Michigan
7) Northwestern University
8 ) Columbia University
9) Yale Law School
10) George Washington University
11) University of Minnesota
12) Thomas M. Cooley Law School
13) Fordham University
14) University of California-Los Angeles


Looks like Chicago ain't even in the T14 any more.

wow, apart from the leak of the rankings, which may or may not be true. autoadmit is a shitty forum. Their layout is awful.
Is there any decent content on there?

The list seems reasonable but I don't buy that WalMart story one bit. Somebody stocking shelves at Walmart would care enought to write law school rankings on their hand? Not just people working at Walmart, I doubt anybody who is not applying to law school would care one bit.

FTFY.

The WalMart employee cousin just happens to be curious of the USNWR ranking?? Give me a break.

Yeah that is a good point. I guess I just feel like quality of education and getting you the job you want should count for a lot more in the rankings (especially in this economy). Or maybe I'm afraid that girls won't want to sleep with me anymore if NU falls out of the top 10...

I dont understand why people continue to do this each year. At least change the story a little bit if you want to be believable. The EXACT same Wal Mark BS Story has been around since 2005

Seriously. Besides, it's effing hilarious to watch all the list-obsessed get all frenzied about made up nonsense.

Possibly. I don't really follow the rankings. :P
