Umm no, Leiter accounts for class size - he takes clerks over class size in the recent decade its .04 for both

Right, and your comparison of the two time periods ignores this ratio.

From the XOXOHTH / autoadmit PDF link:

"schools such as the University of Michigan,
the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Washington, and countless others that send significant
portions of their student body to secondary markets are severely underrated in my study"

http://www.leiterrankings.com/faculty/2005faculty_impact_cites.shtml - ranking NYU's faculty as better than Mich
 

"Since many frequently cited articles are cited because they contain succinct statements of boilerplate propositions of law or of a particular academic approach to some set of issues, or because they fall squarely within a particular academic paradigm whose proponents make a practice of citing each other, the frequency of an author's citations has little to do with his influence, much less with the quality of his work. "

Do you have a better or alternative ranking?

It's a lot easier to find methodological flaws (which exist in any rankings system) than to create a better one.

I'll find one that shows the opposite of what you are arguing... it would be just as meaningless.

And the SCOTUS rankings are so similar in both terms as to be laughable; your interpretation doesn't account for NYU's larger class size either.

Listen to Louis CK and Dane Cook here, and keep in mind, Louis came first.  Way first.

Sarah Silverman:  Joe Franklin raped me.

Some of Dane Cook's stuff was funny -- when it was performed by Louis C.K. 10 years ago.
