I think he was referring to BC's fall in general, since they used to be in the 20-22, but have since fallen to 29 and now 27. It is difficult to guage whether they will ever recover, especially given BU's rise. Their current admission cycle has been quizzical as well, and certainly doesn't seem to be as selective as they used to be. Just a glance at LSN, though arguably not representative of the entire applicant pool, shows that BU's mean acceptance numbers are higher in both GPA and LSAT than BC. It seems like BU's poised to solidify their position and maintain their lead over BC. But hey, I was accepted to BC as well and was hoping to see them recover. It just doesn't seem like they're doing much, or care much, to regain their spot.

And BTW there is no reason to doubt the validity of these rankings simply because your B&N doesn't have the new issues yet. Plenty of others already stock them, including confirmed ones in MA, PA, DC, TX and others. I can give you the number to my local B&N if you want so you can verify.

Actually BC went up 2 spots from last year according to the rankings that are floating around this board and xoxo...D!ckhe@d. Although it wouldn't have made me much of a difference if their ranking did go down @ss.

I should be happy since the best school I've gotten into has just risen in the rankings...but, I'm super sad that USF is now T3.  Sad!  this sucks.

I'm sorry to be a nuisance: I don't want the rank order, I want the overall score (out of one hundred, I think) for 2005, which you have to be a member to see. Since these figures have expired and I know ppl on here have access to them, I was hoping someone would post them for me. thanks.

Cornell 80

So when you see BC, GW both at 20, does that mean they are tied for 20?  If that is the case, what happens to 21 and the others that are seemingly skpped over?

Pepperdine's ranking rose... but I don't agree that it's rising.  There isn't a good enough methodology here for there to be any science to it.  It's coincidence.

And did it ever occur to you that you might want to be careful b/c Pepperdine's alumni network (i.e. the people to whom you'll likely go to for a job) might be really conservative and religious?

I'm not trying to rain on your parade.  But I just think you should be careful -- that's all.  I mean, you're talking about going to a school that will kick you out if they find out you're having an intimate same-sex relationship.

Allright, you're just spreading misinformation.  I know several openly gay Pepp law students (yes, they're still in good academic standing).  Pepperdine also has many liberal students, and people of all religions.  Lots of faculty members and students are religious, but it doesn't permeate all of law school life.  The school is most certaintly rising, in bar passage and reputation.  Pepp also beat out Loyola, USD, USF and SC by a decent margin on the July 04 bar exam. 

Sum: it's not nearly what these clueless people make it out to be.   Get used to it, they'll continue to rise.
