Thanks, Monkey.  I know that you and I are applying to all of those schools.  It looks like Mason and UMD are the only ones with a definite upward trend.

You need to be a Yahoo member (or sign up, it's free.) When you get there, it'll say you're not a member of that group, but go to "join this group" at the top right, and you can get in.

Thanks a lot for finding this.  I recall trying the yahoo link on jd2b.com a while ago and it didn't work.  But this is excellent information to have.  It really helps me put law school reputations in a different perspective.

Sorry, forgot to mention the self-serving nature of my little chart!  I initially did it for my own use, then thought someone else might be interested so I posted it - but I didn't apply to UVA, and already got my GULC ding, so I just didn't bother to list those two since they won't be a part of my decision-making. :)  Probably should've used a different subject line though.

Sorry, I feel like the idiot because I seem to be the only one that does not know what the X's mean.  Translation for a poor Mexican?

X = not Tier 1 or >50
