No school jumped up or down 20-30 spots, and, in any case, it doesn't matter much.
Nebraska from unranked tier 3 in 2010 to #84 in 2011, but not just any #84 rank a TWELEVE way tie for 84th place. I donít even know how you can have a twelve way tie for 84th place, but they managed to do it.
LSU went from 75 into this twelve way tie for 84th place. So it is not quite clear if LSU went from 75 to the 96th or 84th school because there is a twelve way tie for the prestigious honor of 84th place.
Kansas went from 65 in 2010 to a simple 5 way tie for 79th place.
Catholic went from a 4 way tie for 94th place in 2010 up to a 5 way tie for 79th place in 2011.
LMU from 71 in 2010 to 54 in 2011.
Emory from #20 to a 4 way tie to #30 yes a five way tie for 30th place. Emory, Fordham, UNC, University of Washington.
Where's the 20-30 ranking jump? That's what you said, yes?
I ask for a jump of the size you're claiming and you're unable to provide a single one.
-Arizona probably will not impress in L.A. for example. UCLA, USC, are already there not to mention Pepperdine, LMU, Southwestern, also already in L.A.
So, because there are lots of law schools in L.A., Arizona is equivalent to random T3?
Again, you just don't know what you're talking about. As someone who strongly considered going to AZ, I did plenty of research: the top of the Arizona class can get into L.A. firms. No, they're not UCLA/USC (not even close, really); but they will do much, much better than some random T3.
