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.
