You'd think most deans try to improve their school's ranking regardless of if it rises, falls, or stays the same.  Unless the school screwed up on something, it's tough to see how they can move up for sure the following year.

Who cares?  UMiami is a regional school.  If UM students care about their US News ranking, then they're caring about the wrong thing.

Can I throw out a conjecture?  You are overweight, lack meaningful friends, and use LSD/your law school acceptances to boost your self-esteem.
