Schools that will be moving up in rankings

Schools that will be moving up in rankings
« on: November 13, 2004, 02:05:10 PM »
I was just thinking about this today about schools that would be making pretty big jumps up in the rankings (or conversely dropping in the rankings).  I specifically thought of Washington as especially with their brand new building which is hot, I could definitely see it move up to top 25.

What other schools do you guys think?

UF in Gainesville has a new top-flight building that will be done by the spring, so I expect it will move up. Also, I hear applications and LSAT scores are up.

How does a new building affect rankings? Just better reputation?

I think the facilities may be a slight determining factor in USNWR (maybe?) but I guess also nice facilities attract students and sub par facilities turn them off.

Whatever school I decide to attend will certainly make a big jump up in the rankings. You hear that Yale?   ??? I got the goods and if you wanna stay on top you better accept me >:(

Facilities can contribute to a climb in the rankings, but it never lasts more than a year.

new england school of law will move up.  their rep at the LSAC forum today was by far one of the hottest in the room, followed by USD's rep.  both of them will see an increased number of applicants as a result, making them more competitive and driving up their LSAT and GPA ranges.  as a result, new england school of law will be at least 3rd tier next year, and USD will crack the first tier.
