I predict Standford and Harvard tie at #2. I predict Chicago moves up a spot. I predict Illinois moves all the way back to #47. I predict Cornell at GULC swap places in the t-14.

I think the implication is that he somehow already knows what the rankings are. It wouldn't surprise me considering what he does

Yeah this isn't a random poster, and like he said later on in the thread, he'd already seen the rankings. He's being tongue-in-cheek saying "I predict"

I guess you should've be too mad anymore. If the ranking rumors are true and UIUC dropped substantially, it may not be a school worth attending, employers may or may not be put off by the ranking drop.
BTW; what were the numbers?

I know employment and job placement are pretty sticky, and I know employers don't care very much about rankings, but wouldn't a scandal such as the one UIUC had negatively effect employment? What I'm saying is I think what happened effected employment/medians/prestige etc that's goes into the rankings, rather than the rankings alone effecting employment.

Well what I was saying is employers running causing of the scandal caused the drop. Not that the drop will cause employers to run.

Your last sentence reminds me of a lovely movie quote from one of my favorite flicks. "English, motherfucker; do you speak it?"

In other news: No. Illinois has a significant alumni presence and many well-established hiring tracks. No employers are going to start hiring students from Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, etc. over Illinois students because of a now two-year-old scandal. If it were going to make a difference, it would have manifested already. When I went through OCI immediately after the scandal (presumably when it would have made the largest difference) it did not have any impact on hiring numbers. Similarly, it didn't this year for current 2Ls.

There are definitely good reasons not to attend Illinois, but employers getting scared off by rankings/scandal is simply not one of them.
