Law School Applications / Re: New Rankings!! Discuss!!

To the OP:

So, does this ranking follow a chi-squared distribution?  If you squared your normals, I'm pretty sure it would.  Also, I think you may have a problem with stochastic terms, because certain terms have a correlation with each other.  For instance, Tuition, and In-State tuition difference....or Ratio of Students to Faculty, and Tuition.

Thanks so much for all the advice! I'll definitely take a closer look at the UC schools (and Notre Dame). I am looking to stay in the Pacific Northwest, but with all the advice to "spread the net wide" it seems like a bad idea to limit myself to an area that has so few schools, and I didn't know where to start looking outside of the region.

There isn't anything wrong with U of O. I can tell you from personal experience that the facilities are good, the campus beautiful, and the town interesting. On the other hand, UO also has a lot of distractions for me (memories, favorite haunts, etc.) that I would rather avoid. Also, as other posters pointed out, my numbers are a little high for UO, it would be a safety. Finally, from talking to people in Portland, Lewis and Clark seems to be a little more prestigious locally; although U of O probably would do better nationally.

Does anyone have any idea of how UW compares to Lewis and Clark or UO for jobs in the portland area?

I finally caved and decided to apply this fall, but I don't really know how to even START looking. I've looked at most of the information on the sites in the resources, but it feels like no matter how thorough I am there is something I will over look.

How did you narrow down your search?

(My info: GPA: 3.7; LSAT: 165(should I retake?); Undergrad at University of Oregon: Political Science and Linguistics. I'm looking at University of Washington, Lewis and Clark, and an extreme long-shot: Berkeley. I think the regional options here in the Pacific Northwest are kind of slim, so if you have any suggestions on that area I'd appreciate it.)
