I often complain that law school rankings are not nearly sporting enough. To rectify this, I have came up with a rankings game to keep us busy while the summer rolls on. I call it the Bracket Of Death.

By using numerous polls and an elimination system, we will determine the various tiers of law schools, as well as our own t14, in a more competitive, and therefore better, style than is currently done.

I'll set-up all of the polls and they'll all run for 3 days. In the interest of not completely jamming the forum, I won't post more than 4 polls a day.

When a poll is done, the results will show up and I'll post them somewhere. In the event of a tie, we'll run mini-polls between the tied schools until someone wins.

God willing, this will keep us busy until at least the start of July.

Here's how the game will go:

Round 1:

196 Schools Remain (Everyone that's on the LSAC site)

All schools are randomly assigned to a group of 7 schools.  Everyone gets 3 votes. The top 4 schools in each grouping move on, everyone else is gone.

Round 2:

112 Schools

All of the remaining schools get randomly placed into groups of 8. Everyone gets 4 votes and the 6 best schools in each group move on.

Round 3:

84 Schools

Groups of 4. 2 votes each, 2 best schools move on.

Round 4:

42 Schools

Groups of 3. 1 vote each, top school in each group moves on.

Round 5:

14 Schools

Free for all. Everyone gets 6 votes.

Florida State / FSU
« on: June 09, 2008, 11:02:30 AM »
Does anyone ever look at this board?

115
Now for 2009!

All of the schools have new information and description sheets.

Does anyone know what the Tuition Guarantee Program is? It's new on there this year. Also, I think I like the new color scheme.

And go Florida State, 9% increase in their bar passage rate over last year.

Financial Aid / Grad PLUS Loans
« on: May 28, 2008, 10:50:06 PM »
Does anyone know when Grad PLUS loans are supposed to be available? I've been trying to do mine for a few months now but everywhere I've looked only has terms through the summer up.

I came across this chart the other day. I haven't seen it posted anywhere else and it's packed full of employment information for just about every law school. The chart breaks the schools out by where they place geographically and it highlights the 11 biggest markets first, then everything else by state. Anyway, chart:

The original blog post that took me to it is here:
