The pics make this look very legit. Looks like I don't have a top 20 acceptance now thanks to both BU and UMN losing their #20 spots.

YOU SUCK!

My beloved Emory with their $96k offer gained a spot though.

Oh, yeah, you're right. For some reason I thought they were 23 this year.

all it took for berkeley was getting rid of the "boalt hall" thing, apparently. 

lol yup that what was holding them back the *whole time*

i keep saying if nyu just changed their name to princeton law school, they'd be ranked #2 overnight.
If Seton Hall changed their name to Princeton, they'd be number 2 overnight.
I have courted the fire for a very long time, and many sparks have flown in the past, but [this post] speaks, finally, the language of the flame itself.

LINK TO TOP 100 IN PDF: http://pdfserver.amlaw.com/ca/USNews.pdf

boalt triumphs over chicago and pennsylvania, stress over student goverment crises subsides


Psst. Don’t tell anyone, but The Shark got its hands on a preview of the U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of law schools. We’ve heard its official publishing date is Friday.

One development is likely to make Boalt Hall students pee their pants: UC-Berkeley’s law school has muscled ahead of both the University of Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania, bumping them to claim sixth place. We’ve heard that may be the highest ranking Boalt has ever had.

Here are the Top 10

1/ Yale University
2/ Harvard University, Stanford University
4/ Columbia University
5/ New York University
6/ University of California – Berkeley
7/ University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania
9/ Northwestern University, University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, University of Virginia

Four other California schools dropped down on the list compared to last year’s results.  UCLA fell from 15th place to 16th, sharing that spot with University of Texas — Austin this year.  USC also dropped, from 16th, to land on the 18th rung.  Hastings slid from 36th last year to share 38th place with three other schools this year.  And UC-Davis seems to have taken the biggest tumble, falling from 34th last year to 44th.

We lucked out when we heard from someone who’d bought a copy of the magazine already, apparently displayed ahead of schedule. Maybe you can run out and find a copy at a newsstand near you, too.
