Wait List / UVa Status Change

Um, my application status has just been updated.  Has this happened to anyone else?  There's no way to find out whether I'm in or out until I get the letter via snail mail.

Law School Rankings / American: General vs. Int'l Law Ranking
« on: February 23, 2006, 09:47:36 PM »
My pre-law adviser has told me that high rankings in specialized areas don't really make a difference, and I should try to go to a school that's ranked high overall, and not just in the area of law I want to practice.  I'm interested in international law (specifically in the role of the IGO in legislating/enforcing human rights), and I've read that American University is ranked #47 overall, but #5 in international law, tied with Yale.

Does anyone have any ideas about the discrepancies between general and specialized rankings?  Advice would be appreciated.
