makes me wonder if i should stay on the waitlist...
2010 rankings are not going to matter when you graduate in 2012. They will move around between now and then, and its not going to change anything in the eyes of employers, no one is going to stop hiring from there nor starting hiring from there if they did not in the past. Individual resumes will get looked at, but its not going to make a class of resumes that were never conidered be considred now. Hiring partners don't sit around with a big marker cross checking with USNEWS each year to decide who's in and who's out, so don't sweat year to year moves unless the school drops a tier every year for the next three, that might single something to worry about.
Also, they're both nice college towns, but I think you and the wifey would have more fun taking weekend trips to Atlanta instead of Indy or Louisville imo.
Just out of curiosity, how many law students are taking "weekend trips"?
