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?

Yes, I suppose it means they're both sort of tied for twenty.  And they skip 21 b/c they only want 100 in the top 100.  So in a way, they're both tied for 20 1/2.  Go figure.

I agree with that...there are many tier 4 schools that I think are much better than other schools in the same tier.  What surprised me was that 2 schools in the 4the tier have bar passage rates of less than 30%!  I think that the regional reps of Suffolk, Hamline, William Mitchell, etc...have excellent regional reps.

I was pretty surprised when I found out that William Mitchell had dropped to fourth tier.  The funny thing is that most Minnesotans will still consider it the best law school in the Twin Cities without a doubt.  There's no changing us stubborn Scandinavians.  :D

P.S. kristay:  what the heck is a "depost"? ;)

Better than U of M?  If so, you Minnesotans are pretty funny... :)


I honestly think most Minnesotans who aren't law school-savvy really have no idea that UMN even HAS a law school.  At least that's the impression I get.  I have a feeling a good amount of UMN grads actually leave the state after they graduate, whereas WM and Hamline grads tend to stay in-state.  Just my interpretation, though.  :)

Bostonians have the same idea about Suffolk,mostly because the majority of Boston's local politicans went there.

Your icon looks familiar. You post on Law_Students in lj,right? I use justreadingct. :-)

Can someone who has the new rankings PM or e-mail me the stats for CU-Boulder, most importantly their employment %'s.  No one has the new rankings on the shelfs around here.  Thanks.

Haha, I can imagine this conversation:

Native Bostonian: "Suffolk is definitely Boston's best law school."

Someone from a random Midwestern state who now lives in Boston: "Hmm.. really?  What about, say, Harvard?"

Native Bostonian: "Harvard has a law school?"
