i would have done the same thing, if i had been accepted at washington & lee like you were! instead, i meekly asked to stay on the list.

i'm not going to let my secret hope that i'll get in get in the way of my real-life plans. but i wish they'd just let me know already! i'd commit to them faster than they could propose.

Law School Rankings / Re: Winners & Losers of the 2006 Rankings

Honorable mention should go to American, up 9 places from T2 to T1 and USD, up 4 (67 to 63). Those and Tulane were the biggest gainers in my application pool. UGA was the biggest loser, down 5. They're still the highest-ranked school I've been admitted to so far, though.

Update: I'm in, and excited about it. I think it's my #1 choice of the schools that have accepted me. Good luck to those still waiting.

Alright. Loyola (CA) = regional. USD = national. Why? Does anyone know the criteria this magazine uses to determine whether a school is regional or national? I used to think it had to do with the percentage of grads who stayed in-state after graduation. But that makes less sense to me now. So how does US News figure this out and how useful is this categorization?
