biggest US news movers this year
« on: December 06, 2001, 07:10:54 AM »
It might be kind of early to start talking about this.  But what schools do you all think are going to be the biggest movers in the US News rankings this year.  Do you think any of the schools have done anything to try to rank higher?  It seems like the top schools don't really move around, but lower in the list there is quite a bit of mobility from year to year.

I think Illinois due their placement of 2 SCOTUS clerks will have a chance of moving up. WUSTL might also move up due to their aggressive recruiting of better students and faculty.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any resources that contain archives of past rankings.  NYU in particular talks very strongly about how they are a 'fast-rising star' among law schools.  Out of curiosity, I would like to see their rankings over the past 7-10 yrs.

But where would NYU move to?  It's already ranked so high - and it's never going to beat out Yale, Harvard, or Stanford.  It seems just to be competing with Columbia and maybe Chicago.

It takes a long long time for reputations to change, and US News is not going to have a significant effect (though they might report an already occuring ranking move).
