I'll take that bet any day.  Emory's numbers are around the same as GW's. If GW dropped, so too would Emory.

Most importantly, IU would not ever be 23 in any realm of the world.

thedudeman where you at?

Maybe he had a stroke when the rankings got published? He seems a little high strung when it comes to rankings seeing as how that usually what he bases his bashing of other posters on.

I wonder where he is too, esp. after all the snarky pm's he sent me about "what a moron I am" if I think iu-b could ever pass GW...

Adcoms respect numbers. GPA. LSAT. The end.

If you're buying a house v. renting a studio I would take RWU.

Prosecute the people who told the CIA agents it was legal, abso-f-in-lutely! I don't think the people who were given the go-ahead by the D.O.J. should be prosecuted though. They asked if it was legal, were told it was, then did it. It's not their fault they were lied to IMO.   

is there a significant cost difference?

Case's money is basically guranteed, Akron requires you to work for it. Case is ranked considerably higher. Also, the career prospects do look quite bit better out of Case. But, Akron doesn't look like a bad school if you want to stay in NE Ohio.

Full disclosure: I'm going to Case this fall  :).

Remarq, if you believe that these are legit you really are a moron.  GW's numbers are posted on their site.  I assure, you, we still have significantly higher numbers than BLOOMINGTON.  You really need to get a grip on reality.

Have you not seen the photos? They have the magazine! every page including the cover is photographed.

I'm amazed out how submitted some people are to the US News Rankings.  What makes this periodical so trustworthy that hundreds of people on this site logon everyday to discuss who's poised for a "bump" or what tier US News puts them in?  If I'm not mistaken, the rankings are largely based on the LSAT scores of the incoming class (which has nothing to do with the quality of its faculty or resources) and public perception (which is sometimes based on the respect brought by a good football/basketball team or a past history of being exclusive). 

In sum, the way they've chosen to rank law schools lacks credibility and it should not be recognized as such.  They would be less deceptive if they called their system "Top Scoring Incoming Law School Classes" or "America's Most Popular Law Schools"

40% of the ranking score comes from the lawyer and judge assessment score... so, pick another name for your rankings.

i guess i was just shocked to see a school take a 13 point jump in the rankings as the difference between a 15-25 school and a 30-45 school (the way i see it, at least) is that the former is a strong national school with a slightly national reach or access to a HUGE market (LA, NY, Chi) rather than the latter which is possibly a lower ranked version of the former, but at least a strong regional school...

i guess i just wonder how IU-B made such a huge jump all of a sudden...

These "rankings" are fake morons.  I find it hilarious that every year people fall for the BS hoaxes.  Look at the LSAC's numbers.  Compare IU, with say GW.  They aren't even close.

GW 75% GPA: 3.86
IU: 3.67

25% GPA
GW: 3.40
IU: 3.03

75% LSAT:
GW: 168
IU: 165

25% LSAT:
GW: 165
IU: 158

Keep dreaming.  IU is not going to jump to 23, GW is not going to jump to 28 nor are half those other moves ever going to happen.

Before you go name calling, moron, you should realize that the numbers LSAC is using are numbers form the 1L class of 07 and the new USNews numbers are from the the 1L class of 08... Get all of the facts next time, thanks. Second, these rankings are legit, sorry to burst your bubble.
