Bummer. Debating between Chicago and Columbia and am leaning Columbia. This won't change anything for me, but still would have been nice to see them at least stay 4!

You'll be there for 3 years, and it will likely swap back and forth a few times from now until then. Look at employment outcomes for what you're interested in doing, and if the differences are negligible, go with where you feel comfortable between two objectively elite schools. :D

Just wondering if this is actually a serious comment? I'm terrible at picking up sarcasm.

I do think it's a serious comment. It's very legit to be between U Chicago & Columbia...two very prestigious schools.

I much prefer NYC and really like Columbia's LRAP. Very serious. Still have to check out Chicago's ASW though!

I meant the part about Columbia being 4 in USNews being relevant to any decision making.

Probably the same as Harvard which also dropped a spot to Stanford.

Good for u Chicago for sure! Major accomplishment to stay at #4. Columbia is and it will always be a very prestigious law school though!

I think it's always easier to run a smaller size of class. Right? You can be more selective. Not worried about filling the class. Easier to place graduates.

Oh wow... I just saw the rankings. I know this isn't really supposed to matter, but does anyone else feel like they won't be excited about telling someone they're going to Columbia now? When there were several ties, it seemed like they were all clustered together but "5" seems to have a different feel. Perhaps it's just an optics thing. Someone tell me I'm being crazy?

If this is serious, you're being crazy. BUT, I will gladly take your spot if you are reconsidering attending! 8)

Thanks everyone, this has been helpful. It's just hard not to feel like I should definitely go to Chicago instead, since I got into both.

I don't think it's an "optics" thing. It could be an "appearances" thing.

because of a one place difference in the rankings? that's silly. you realize that most people outside of TLS have absolutely no idea what the current rankings are/care right? do you think big law employers suddenly think less of Columbia now?

Also, Columbia and Chicago will probably switch or be tied again next year.
