This is rather old news but I saw this on another website and it is interesting and on point.

Does anyone think there is any merit in this analysis?

I find it interesting, but some of the rankings are just outright ridiculous, IMO.

Am I the only one who did not know that the ABA has an arbitration competition?

I was just pointing out that we do, in fact, know the method to the madness. If not a flame, I'm thinking high school sophomore.

OK, now THAT was a flame for sure.

No guessing there.   :D

I was just saying dude seems to lack some basic research/reading/reasoning skills.

Certainly, to define something as basic is to define it as "base", simple, rudimentary...or average. Meaning those who would study it would be average. The rankings and their madness are hardly fodder for the faint of heart, which is to say "average" people. So, "lacking basic" reasoning and research skills?...no. Another assumption you make is that because one does not do something, it must be the case that he cannot. Heck, it's a jump to assume someone has not done something, let alone the rest.

Rankings are simple arbitrary madness, and I take them seriously or not so seriously depending on the day of the week. I do not get into every subtlety of the rankings, though I do understand quite a bit. As for my reasoning? 51/51 on the LSAT and perfect (A+) grades in undergraduate philosophy, near perfect grades on all essays, including term papers (never below an A). Those are "reasons" to think otherwise.   

But, honestly, we've gone way to far on this topic. I don't even think we are so much disagreeing as over-analyzing. It's killing my buzz.

Go Lawdog, way to go Goodwill Hunting on Ninja!

I wish I could do the same but my academic career would not have the same sting, sadly... ;)


Was Goodwill Hunting unable to read?

I said Goodwill Hunting, not Rainman.

Slow on the driveway Ninja, slow on the driveway...  :D

Of course, Chapman has the 3rd lowest ranking in the country according to this ranking (based on success of alumni).

Does anyone know how AVVO comes up with their rankings?

:D "Isn't Chapman that "Dog the Bounty Hunter" guy?" is actually winning this poll.  WTF  ???

No one has heard of or gives a poo about Chapman. It's not that hard to understand.

Yeah, I guess that should have been obvious to me.  Still, it is pretty amazing to think that Dog is the Dean of a law school. :o

Where should I go next fall? / Irvine's new Law School

What are your thoughts on Irvine's new law school?

How does it compare to Pepperdine, Loyola, Chapman, and San Diego if you had to choose between these and Irvine?
