Well, at first I really didn't want to leave CA and if Pepperdine is actually showing an upward trend at this rate, it might be a good idea to stay. When they were 99, you never knew if they were going to drop off into T3. A 40 place difference between 2 schools (UHLC v. Pepperdine) is a hell-of-a-lot more significant than 12 places. It's enough to give pause when the 2 schools you're really considering are heading in different directions (according to USNews).

Fair enough, and I see where you are coming from..it just seems to me that these rankings are so damn volatile that there is a danger in assuming a upward or downward trend from a year or so.

I thought Santa Clara was U of SC?  What does U of SC stand for?

what Happened to Santa Clara and the USF (University of San Francisco) did they both become T3's??

Wow, makes me want to re-consider my CA schools . . . if only they gave me more $$$.


Are you really going to reconsider your schools based on these rankings?  Do you really think the schools you are looking at changed that much in a year?  I understand these are influentual, but I wouldn't let today's rankings change your mind if you have already decided on a school.


maybe she shouldnt have decided 6 years before deposits were due and all decisions were in.  just a thought.

My decision affects other people than just me. I cannot expect my husband to give little notice and still have his job. Not everyone is a lone wolf in this process.

41. George Mason, Tulane, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, UMD


Guess George Mason can no longer boast about being the fastest rising LS in America . . . it bugged me how they printed that over and over again in their literature.

If the 50-100 rankings are true, I'm surprised that Temple and Cardozo fell.  Even though Pitt fell, it's still 13 places ahead of Temple... huh.

SH*T....Looks like Toledo fell back to TTT.  They managed to go from fourth tier to a 90-something spot in the 2005 rankings... now they appear to have fallen-from-grace.
