I agree - this is what worries me. Damn, just when I was feeling warm and fuzzy about Wake
Yeah. Most of the other schools that it was seriously considering have at least maintained, if not improved. But I've already withdrawn everywhere else so it's too late for me to change...
I have to keep reminding myself that:
1. The numbers fluctuate year to year.
2. This year's numbers were similar to 2011, but Wake isn't some TTTT hell-hole now, so it will probably be in the same place 3 years from now give or take a few meaningless USNews places.
3. This was the largest.class.EVAR. If 56/57 score on LST is the worst it gets for Wake, I can live with that. Class of 2013 had over 50,000 entering JD students, and the class of 2016 has like 39,000 while ours is supposed to be even smaller. Assuming the legal market doesn't shrink much by 2017, we should be in a better position.
4. I'm paying like $12k for Wake.
Happy thoughts, happy thoughts....
