See what I was talking about when I said US News is starting to distort younger people/and those who don't know about law school's perception of Chicago? You now have people classifying a school that is only out placed by HYS (and barely out placed by Stanford at that) into the same group as Penn and UVA. Making it even worse they actually are so sure that their assertion of Chicago as a "middle" top 14 that they are calling you a troll. Chicago needs to get on the ball with this US News thing, even though the people who count the most in the short term (hiring partners, law firms, government agencies, legal academics) know it's on a par with Columbia many current applicants do not.

What's really bad is that that poster said Chicago was a middle top 14 on par with UVA and Penn, with such certainty that people who are looking for honest information, and don't realize that that poster doesn't know what they are talking about, will take them seriously.


Are you shitting me? It is a middle T14 (it is not #1, 2 or 3 is it?, it is also not #12, 13 or 14 right?) I was giving some useful information and I only listed those three because those were the first three schools whose yield rate I looked up. My information was regarding Yield Rate not its ranking. And Chicago's yield rate is right around 28%.


The comment, though partially aimed at your grouping of Chicago with the actual middle top 14 schools, was mostly in response to the poster who called hopeful a "troll" for hinting that Chicago was not in fact in the same group as Penn. Still understand that when most people on here talk about being in a certain area within the rankings they mean in "real life" as opposed to US News. Anyway that's not the purpose of this thread so let's just leave it at that.

according to ABA data linked from LSAC, for 5,811 apps they made 957 offers (last yr i would guess?) 16.47% acceptance rate

Yep. Complete 10/23, UR 11/11, UR again 12/3. RD.

I've been focusing so much on Berkeley and Michigan I keep on forgetting about Penn and UVA.



Same here. UR 11/11, updated to UR today, 12/3. Please let this be a good sign.

Then if all the numbers we are hearing are correct, ED has a considerably LOWER acceptance rate, despite having no YP issues.

I think hopeful is a troll because a) he spends time in multiple threads, trolling, like telling kids in the NYU thread that he got in, and calling CLS a degree mill that will drop out of the T14 in the CLS thread, and b) he goes into other (non-Chicago) threads just to make comments about Chicago. But thanks for the lecture on the Real World.

Yeah, but it doesn't mean that ED has WORSE chances, it just means that people who actually ED to Penn probably have bad numbers and are reaching with the ED.

I still love that kurama20 is trying to explain to me how TLS works. I have never been here before, so it was nice to have the explanation.

Right, but this bolsters Penn's claim that they don't favor ED applicants in any way.

There are 6 ED acceptances on LSN from last year, so if there are a total of 15, that's 40% of the ED class. If nothing else, it makes that data a little easier to extrapolate from.

I love how someone thinks amassing close to 5000 posts on an anonymous online message board is something to be proud of. :lol:

What's even more hilarious is that puppins has hopeful confused with another poster! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Right. I knew something looked a little off (I missed the "1" when I copied and pasted the numbers).

Really? I said I was proud? Where? I jsut thought you'd be smart enough to not try and explain what happens on this board to someone who has been on it longer than you.

Secondly, Puppins wasnt confused.
