It's because most of us left on this thread are either 1. Not in yet and have been waiting forever, and see our hope quietly fading, or 2. Just got in and try to encourage #1s (SBL
1. I am certain that you will all experience tremendous luck with regard to Davis admissions. They are being ungodly slow due to some idiocy with their computer systems; no need to lose hope yet!
2. Regarding gloating, there is no need. Over the past 10 years, UCD has averaged a ranking of 35.something and Hastings has averaged a ranking of 38.something. Moving up 9 spots is great, because it puts to bet any rumblings about Davis becoming a T2 school (it won't), but the fact remains that for all intents and purposes Davis and Hastings are peer schools and the USNews rankings difference between them is not significant. NLJ250 placement percentages, clerkships, academia opportunities, etc. remain nearly identical between the two schools.
3. That said, Davis > Hastings
