Total BS!

Would there be a tie in the T-14? Or is that a distinction that USNWR doesn't really pay attention to?

This is funny tho.

USNWR reporting that high law school tuition are their fault!!

Didn't read the whole thread, but there's no way someone copies down the first 18 schools and then stops, especially when that is a normal break off point for what people consider good schools on this site (T14 plus stepchildren UCLA, USC, Texas, and Vandy).

well, you're entitled to your opinion of course, but in the real world, conversations aren't this clean or simple.

statuscheckerssuck wrote: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.

March ... April ... It was a second hand report that came from a Wal-Mart employee who probably felt rushed in the first place because he/she knew that the box wasn't supposed to be opened. The moth, day, or both might have been misread or mis-conveyed. I am not saying it's a real leak for sure, but I am not ruling it out because of the date either.
Apple Tree wrote: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.

I thought about that too, but then I thought that the Wal-Mart employee could have been interested if his/her friend talked about the rankings a lot. Although, as friends, they wouldn't have that much in common any more :?
Ragged wrote:I wonder if one or two spots in the rankings (outside of T3) would mean any difference as far as employment prospects are concerned. Not like employees are suddenly going to recruit less from Chicago just because it fell to 7 or even 8.

The only people who look at the rankings as closely as we are are 0Ls, law students, and maybe recent grads. Even if hiring partners know the current rankings, they won't care as much as people on this thread.
The Brainalist wrote:The historical rankings have some shifting between Stanford and Harvard, and Columbia and NYU. The job opportunities, surprisingly, were not affected by this, nor was actual educational quality. It almost makes you wonder if these rankings have the powers we ascribe to them at all.

This is SO funny ... "surprisingly," the educational quality wasn't affected. Did you think that these guys would all of a sudden stop showing up to lecture consistently just because USNWR bumped the law school.

Imagine:
Professor Barenburg: Hey, professor Bermann, I am curious to know how a case we are going over I my class might fare according to your area of specialty: European Law. How about we have a chat over coffee at noon?

Professor Bermann: ... How about we talk about anything else over a phat doobie at noon. Didn't you hear, man, we don't have to work any more; USNWR moved us from 4 to 5.

In the real world I would never try and casually converse with 20+ people at once, with people coming and going from the conversation at will, and people popping up near the end to say "I don't know what you guys were talking about, but here's my opinion.."

This. Obviously.

Magazines ship out their stuff and it goes on the newstands. They don't sit around for two weeks.

I also won't be closing the thread because what would TLS be if it wasn't a place for 0L's bash NYU and Berkeley.

This might be a dig at me because those are the only two schools I bashed earlier..

But, I really like Boalt. I think it is a fantastic school. The lack of schollys + the increased tuition makes it harder to attract a solid student body. I don't think it will leapfrog Chicago.

I don't know if the leak that above the law reported is on this thread already, but here it is (LinkRemoved) anyway.

Above the Law wrote:U.S. News 2010 Law School Rankings
Wednesday, April 22, 2009 1:45 PM - By Elie Mystal

The 2010 U.S. News law school rankings leaked over the weekend were not fake. Bob Morse — the rankings guru — essentially confirmed the results to the Wall Street Journal today, ahead of the magazine’s official release tomorrow.

Here’s the official list of the top 20 law schools:

1. Yale
2. Harvard
3. Stanford
4. Columbia
5. NYU
6. (Tie) Berkeley, University of Chicago
8. Penn
9. Michigan
10. (Tie) Duke, Northwestern, UVA
13. Cornell
14. Georgetown
15. (Tie) UCLA, Texas
17. Vanderbilt
18. USC
19. Wash U
20. (Tie) Boston University, Emory, Minnesota

Yeah, note that those rankings were leaked days before the issue was supposed to come out, in mid April. It is now early march. These rankings are almost certainly fake. HTH.

NYU was ahead of Columbia multiple times in the last ten years. Boalt was ahead of Chicago LAST year.

These rankings are still bullshit, but just sayin.
