Yea that is odd. I wonder if they tried to cut scholarship offers that year. Their rank hasn't changed all that much in the past 3 years.
Anyone else have any other theories?
Fewer students might be matriculating, but it's a general pattern that law schools have been cutting class sizes. When employment numbers out of the school aren't strong, it seems like they've been hacking away. UC Hastings cut class sizes by 20 percent, for example. Davis' application numbers have also been down, so they're probably trying to preserve LSAT and GPA numbers for USNWR. They admit fewer students and then matriculate fewer students. If UC Davis wants to get their numbers up, they probably shouldn't charge one of of the highest tuition rates for in state and out of state students. Get smart Davis. This isn't a T14.
