Where is Thomas Cooley? 

In all seriousness though, how the hell did Hawaii go up 15 spots?  So many ties too.  A lot of movement all over the place.  I wonder if US News messed with their formula.

Also, does anyone know what schools dropped out of the top 100?

I'm just totally flabbergasted.  I think that all the anti-Penn, Pro-Berkeley trolling did it  ;)

And this is, perhaps irrationally, making me a bit nervous about post-graduation career stuff...

Boalt has the lowest acceptance rate, highest employment rate, and a comparatively high GPA.  I remember reading somewhere that a higher median GPA will do more for your USN rank than will a couple of LSAT points.

I like how they put Northwestern out of alphabetical order just to make it look like a more dramatic shift.  Clever.

Also, I'd bet big money that USN leaked this early to quiet the reaction to Vault's rankings release.  Also clever.

Can someone with a better monitor than me tell me whether that's Cincinnati or UCONN at 52?  All I can see is a Ublur of Cblur.
