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.
There are no stupid questions - just stupid people who ask questions.

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?
But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.

X = not Tier 1 or >50
