Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Is there a free online resource showing "US News" top 100 for past 5 years?« on: January 26, 2007, 07:28:38 PM »
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 http://www.prelawhandbook.com/law_school_ranking__third_tier 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.
