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. :-)

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?"

Oh,Bostonians know about BC and Harvard. They just think Suffolk ranks up there with them. ;-)

So basically, not much has changed except a few school, especially in T2. Big deal.

I'm probably the only one who cares, but I'm glad to see Syracuse move from T3 to top 100 (granted, it's barely in the top 100), especially since that's most likely where I'm headed in August!

What happens if they drop back into T3 before you graduate?


(This is the reason I think these rankings are worth a hoot.)

Nothing. My previous post was not meant to imply that I had made my decision based on the fact that Syracuse moved from third to second tier. I was simply stating that I thought "hey, that's great."  I'm going to Syracuse regardless of whether or not they stay in the second tier or drop back to third before I graduate. I'm with you on the rankings not meaning a whole lot. So, who cares?
Syracuse it is!!!!! .. all the way from sunny southern Alabama ...

Allison-

You should be honored for being accepted at a Christian University such as Pepperdine which actually integrates Christian values into the study of law . I'm not sure which undergraduate school you attended, but I am sure you were idoctrinated with liberal theories so why care now? I have stated this before, It is much easier to lead those who already have the same views as you. However, if you are an atheist, I am not sure you would fit in at Pepperdine. More than likely you will be taking a class with Dean Starr and constitutional law professor Douglas Kmiec. The Law School dinner this year hosted Theodore Olson who was Bush's largest advocate in the 2000 election and the Bush v. Gore case. I also think it was a good point recently brought up that most of Pepperdine's alumni network are Christians.

You should also consider the stated policies found in the graduate handbook:
http://www.pepperdine.edu/housing/content/graduate-handbook043.pdf

GENERAL CONDUCT EXPECTATIONS
"In keeping with Pepperdine University's Christian mission and its heritage in Churches of
Christ, all members of the University community are encouraged to consider and respect the
teachings of Jesus and historic, biblical Christianity. It is expected that all students will adhere to
biblical teaching regarding moral and ethical practices. Engaging in or promoting conduct or
lifestyles inconsistent with biblical teaching is not permitted.
It is expected that students will
maintain the highest standards of personal honor, morality, and integrity. The University reserves
the right to refuse admittance to or dismiss any person who violates these principles."

SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS POLICY
"In keeping with Pepperdine University’s Christian mission and its heritage in Churches of
Christ, all members of the University community are encouraged to consider and respect the
teachings of Jesus and historic, biblical Christianity. Pepperdine University affirms that sexual
relationships are designed by God to be expressed solely within a marriage between husband and
wife. This view of sexuality and marriage is rooted in the Genesis account of creation and is
maintained consistently throughout Scripture. Sexual relations of any kind outside the confines
of marriage are inconsistent with the teaching of Scripture, as understood by Christian churches
throughout history, including Churches of Christ. Therefore, as a matter of moral and faith
witness, all members of the University are expected to avoid such conduct themselves and to
refrain from encouraging it in others. In all disciplinary matters, we will seek to be redemptive in
the lives of the individuals involved. Consequently, the University will offer counsel and
assistance to support and strengthen the individuals resolve to live consistently with Christian teaching on sexuality. Sexual misconduct, depending on the facts and circumstances of each case, may result in disciplinary action."

I suggest we call the ABA regarding Pepperdine's "sexual misconduct" policies.
I believe it's illegal for an ABA-accredited school to discriminate against
one's sexual preference, and to expel a student because he/she is gay/lesbian
is truly outrageous!  

BTW-- aren't a lot of gay porn companies located near Malibu? If so, I suggest we call
Titan Media or Falcon Films to orchestrate a parade of men in shorts out in front of Pepperdine's lawschool.
