Bwilliams, Congrats man!!!!! I know you have been waiting a long time!  I'm glad everything worked out.  Maybe you could call her back and put in a good word for me!

I doubt if they deferred you twice you need to worry much about using them as scholarship bargaining power. Are you planning on waiting it out or withdrawing?

So I went ahead and called GW today and told them if they don't give me a response soon then they can kiss my...........................

No, I'm kidding.  Just wanted to give you guys a rise.  It has been a slow week.  Hopefully, we'll get some more info today!

Congrats on Case!!!!  They sure have been moving slow this cycle.

Well at least we can all wait and be miserable together.

Very wrong   :'(

Considering I want to do tax (I have been in public accounting for several years), would it be unwise to consider going to UF due to their strong LLM tax program for my JD rather than a school such as GW (if I get in part-time)?  I know the LLM profs teach a lot of the tax classes on the JD level, but will that really translate into marketability in the tax world or should one choose the school with the better reputation?  Any thoughs?

I went complete at UT on 01/20/07.  I heard back today by mail. 

I know they have been calling a lot of strong applicants this year with the ole' "meet or beat" any scholarship offer approach, so they may be trying to rise up in the rankings.  If I remember correctly, I beleive they recently got a new dean (maybe that has something to do with it).  If the judge/peer reviews are holding them down so much, I think it will be hard for them to bump themselves up in rankings by throwing out scholarships, but it does indicate they are really trying to improve their standing. 

Surely some studious, obsessed individual has already mapped the five-year US News rankings trend of the Brandeis School of Law and therefore can advise me if, indeed, it is a worthy cause to pay the $158 round-trip, super-saver Southwest airfare from Raleigh to Louisville and back again on Feb. 7th and 8th to play winks-and-kisses with the admissions staff.

I did a quick search on google, but couldn't find anything earlier than 2004. I found two sites which listed different 2004 (69 and 75) ranks and have included links to both below.

2004 - 69 or 75
2005 - 82
2006 - 85
2007 - 100+

It looks like they have been on a fairly steady down trend for a few years now.  If you check you will see that Louisville is pretty solid when it comes to LSAT/GPA but in regards to Judges/Peer review, they are really hurting.
