Tier 3 rankings

When USNWR came out this year, it had the tier 3 schools ranked.  When I look now, it is done alphabetically.  Does anyone have a link for the ranked version?  Thanks!!

Damnit Cosmo, I was fully relying on your usually incredible/generous research skills.  Get ready for spitballs in class at Northeastern next year...

And btw, I hadn't realized that Suffolk was SO far down in the t3 rankings.  Sheds a little more light on the Northeastern v. Suffolk discussion in my eyes.

Creighton has been moving up quickly.  Anybody think they'll break the top 85 next year?

FWIW, I believe that Suffolk is a criminally underrated school.  Their grads are all over the area.  I think that problem is just that they have a lot of students and a night program, not to mention that they're in the shadow of three giants (and of course one mega-giant).  From what lawyers in Boston have said to me, they've been more impressed with Suffolk grads as of late than Northeastern.

Remember:  Anything past, like, the top 50, and you're at regional schools.  Visit them and pick the one that works best for you.

That and the fact that they dont travel outside the 495 belt that much :)

Sorry Plex--that is the full list.  Thanks.  I remember seeing it too, when the rankings were released "prematurely."
