US NEWS Rankings 2011?

Postby exitlane » Sun Mar 28, 2010 11:39 pm

Is the countdown timer on the USNEWS website for when the rankings are released online or the magazine will go out for distribution? Or both?

I'm putting my money on a GW upset upward, and another Penn State mover to the plus side. PSU's program has gotten only stronger and more reputable over the years. For goodness sakes, a few years ago, they were a TTT, now it's a solid T-65 with strong lay prestige (perhaps simply the popularity of the name Penn State). I'd be surprised if their ranking goes down.

I think Cornell's gonna drop. It's an undesirable location, especially for getting jobs during and after (other than that I haven't the faintest)

Who cares? What does it matter.

I think people forget that they're putting so much thought and consideration into what a magazine says. A Non Legal magazine at that.

Go wherever you want to go and stop worrying if your school is going to drop a few spots or go up. It doesnt matter at all.

Can I just say, as someone seriously considering Penn, I love how the 8 ) turns into a 8)
Penn is so often given the eight-spot by people on here, so I think it's a great beneficiary of this little doo-dad.

Every year people predict GULC out of the T14. Every year, it stays at 14- mocking them.

For some reason, looking at predictions about rankings never gets old for me. All people do is just rank their schools higher and it is interested to see which schools they go to, or have been accepted to, or really, really want to go to. I really need to get to work.
