Don't get me wrong I love NU, but I'm curious as how they ended up #9 with the lowest peer and judge/lawyer assessment score as well as the lowest 25% GPA and among the lowest 75% GPA.  Their LSAT is a little better than the peers, but what variable puts them so high?

What happened with Duke?  They feel below Northwestern and Virginia.  And can someone explain why changing the name jumped Boalt so much?  Also, it's funny that Georgetown is yet again 14th, for like the 10th years in a row.

Duke lost to West Virginia, Duh!
Done and Done, I think

Tag.  It can't be student/faculty ratio, can it?  Is that variable weighted that heavily?

Wow, Georgia State jumped 9 spots. It's rising in leaps and bounds every year.

They only moved from 82 to 77.

The acceptance rate is lower, and its bar passage rates are significantly stronger than its peer schools.

Note that CLS's Stud:Fac ratio is now below 10, putting it behind only Stanford and Yale. (Take that Chicago!)

Oh, and we're adding another FLOOR to our main building. That means even more faculty hires. Bahahahahahaha.

/troll.

the first three times i read this, i thought Stud:Fac ratio involved the ratio of good looking guys to whatever Fac is.

Stud to fine-available-chicks.

They're seven before and after?  Berkley just jumped, and now they're in a tie.  However, had I told you they would end up tied with Chicago, would you be upset?

Two thoughts:
Alabama is the new Iowa.
Lol @ FSU, trying to game the rankings to beat UF. They cut their incoming class by 1/3 and planned to admit a monster transfer class, plus they offer huge amounts of scholarship money to anyone who would get an acceptance to UF. Pretty funny.
