I believe my pre-law job was the biggest factor in gaining admission to any law school.  I was a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer for two years.  Not only has it been one of the most personally rewarding experiences of my life, but it has also given me the perspective and insight necessary to make the most of my law education.  

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: second tier vs third tier

How does a shcool like University of Denver maintain it's second tier ranking year after year in the USN rankings?  It's numbers look more like tier 3 than tier 2.  I know there are other factors in play, but it still seems like an anomoly.

Also, how has University of Seattle managed to climb from tier 4 to tier 2 in I think it was three or four years?   That seems like quite a meteoric rise without a substantial increase in their numberical stats.  Anyone have any insight into either of these schools?

Michigan State's law school might not be much to write home about, but its business school is highly rated (#37 most recent USN).  My guess is that this is a little unusual for two schools to be so differently ranked and still part of the same parent university.  Anyway, can anyone offer any insight into the possiblity of gaining admission to the business school to pursue a joint jd/mba after/during the first year law school?  Would the business school tend to look more favorably on an applicant from their own law school or since the b-school is so competitive is that not much of a factor?
