I have to officially tell you that my girlfriend (fiance soon) will be in Boston next year.  If Yale were in Boston, I'd go in a heartbeat.

Any particular reason that USNews, seemingly out of the blue, decided to refer to UNC as University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill last year, but now only lists it as University of North Carolina?

Flame.

This is definetely a FLAME, Post A FULL page.  Neither pictures show a full list of categories.  WHere is the employment rate or faculty ratio.   Nice Try FLAMER.  Look at Peer Assessment Score.  There is a hyphen between assess-ment.  That NEVER happens in USNEWS when they do a table. 

It's usually like this

Peer
Assessment
score

NOT
Peer assess-
ment Score.

They NEVER use hyphens, there are at least 2 uses of hyphenated words.  Look at the previous years issues.

YOU ARE SO LAME>

WELL, if we were talking about the 2007 Online Edition I would be wrong.  But I think when someone post pictures of a supposedly 2007 PRINT edition then reference to the 2006 Print Edition is more informative then the 2006 ONLINE Edition. 

Also the print is TOO LARGE, the gaps between categories is TOO LARGE as compared to the 2006 PRINT EDITION.  LAME POST. Harvard will never overtake Yale.  Harvard class size is too large to build a comparable LSAT median score as Yale. 

That is all.

Anyways, I don't care.  I'm just pointing out that a hyphen wouldn't be coming from left field.

Post by: TheJesus on March 28, 2006, 09:50:02 AM
This was already disproved in a different thread...

The biggest indicator that this is fake is that US News doesn't include numbers from part time programs in their totals, however the document in the picture includes this data...look at Gerogetown, Fordham and GW

for example, the 25-75% LSAT numbers or Georgetown should be 167-170, however, they are not. With the PT data included, the end up being 165-169, and that is what this fake document shows

It looks like someone just got the data off of LSAC.org from the 'Totals' column of the ABA data for all the schools...they probably weren't aware that the PT data doesn't get factored into the US News #s

I bet that took about 15 minutes to fake...

All they had to do was enter the data into a spreadsheet, which could have been copied and pasted from a number of sources, then just print it out and take a picture...

this is the credited response.

i was saying you were correct. don't get your panties in a bunch.

and to be fair, the inclusion of the PT numbers wouldn't necessarily prove it a fake. USNWR could simply decide that they were going to start doing it. Would you call them up and complain that their print magazine is a flame?

Anyway, I already admitted it was a flame. In the future I will not acknowledge you if you're right about something. It apparently causes you great anger and frustration.

lol, what a loser...

I'll bet he's making another fake as we speak, minus the obvious f*ck-ups that were included in this one...

The Rankings are coming out online first this year, on Friday March 31st...the print edition won't be on the shelves until the following Monday April 3rd, so anything between now and then is fake no matter how real it looks

buddy, take your bitter TTT triple major from a TTT school in michigan, factor in your TTT gpa and TTT lsat, and go bother someone else. you're much more involved in getting upset about the fake than i am it was outted. do you think for a minute i expected to pass it off? hell even if i had i would've been saying "haha gotcha guys. it was fake" today. *&^% calm down.

yes, schools get them tomorrow, and we'll hear tidbits about such and such school moving up to whatever rank, but this year the official rankings will be online before the print edition is available on the news stands, unlike last year and probably the years prior

If I'm going to be attending a 'TTT' and yet I was smarter than you to be able to recognize that the official rankings don't include part-time statistics, then that says you're lower than me on the food chain...so don't insult your own intelligence
