Further, I think that Hofstra can be assumed to have a bullet, as well, having gone from third tier to 89th in just one cycle. 11 spots? Of course, it will move slower and slower asit moves against more competitive schools, however, with 1 spots behind it, that indicates momentum, which would indicate at least another jolt or two forward. Peg is in the 70's within a year or two, I'd guess, where it will probably come to rest for a while.Those are my two guesses.
I don't know about an upward trend, but I think Baylor will probably move up a few spots in next year's rankings. Their GPA median and 25-75 percentiles moved up quite a bit Fall 2003: GPA 3.45/3.9 (Median 3.75) Fall 2004: GPA 3.74/3.97 (Median 3.85) http://law.baylor.edu/new_prosp_students/percentiles.htmThat puts them up in the GPA range of Harvard/Stanford/Yale.
