1)Case Western - lsat and gpa medians are 158 and 3.19, seems pretty low for their ranking. imo overated school
2)Pittsburgh - just dont think it's that great to be a tier 1
From what I hear, case's rep among lawyers and laymen far exceeds its rankings. The school, again, from "what I hear," recognizes this and is trying to manipulate the rankings accordingly.
Pitt has been buying great professors for years now, and has increased its selectivity as well. There is no reason to think it will fall, and good reason to think it will climb (over the years, that is, not just whatever ranking they get this fall). Plus, Pittsburgh is rated the "#1 City to live and work" and "#1 city to be a young lawyer," the cost of living is extremely low, and the job market competition isn't anywhere near as fierce as most eastcoast and midwestern cities. Yes, I am a Pitt troll, and I plan to attend.
