Not sure how you're still disputing this point. The grammar comment was not to boost my ego, I'm busy tonight and if this was to continue to back and forth, I'd prefer you just take an extra few seconds to clean up what you say so it's easier to read. I didn't say you were incapable of writing well. I'm not trying to be abrasive, but with the massive number of guests reading the forums, do you really want someone to to take what you say and make a significant decision off it? Specifically, that Temple's fall was a disaster? I'm not trying to be an internet-doucher.
Why don't I put it a different way that we can both agree on, to ME, if I was a Temple student, I would feel bad about this move. Not speaking for others, this is just how I would take it. I can call it a disaster or something else, but in my own opinion I would be put down by the fact that Temple went from being outranked by 2 schools to being outranked by 4. I will certainly agree that this will not cause firms to not hire from Temple, I also surely agree that temple will still place very well in Philly (although I will say I feel Nova places better simply because I concentrate on big firm placement and nothing else). No, this will not cause the school to close down, bur down, or lose all their OCIs for next year. I am 100% in agreement with you that rankings largely don't matter. With that said, a large gap does matter (No one is going to say that American is the same as GW in the DC area or that Kansas and Maryland are the same schools. I have always looked at rankings a something that matters when there is a significant gap between the two schools). To clarify, I personally would feel bad about this situation if I was going to Temple. Thats pretty much it.
