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. Random
For exactly that reason I'm calling bull on those rankings. I find it very difficult to believe that Villanova ranks ahead of Temple. Both schools have roughly equivalent "reputation," but Temple's LSAT and GPA medians are higher, Temple has better bar passage rates, and Temple has spent a hell of a lot of money over the past few years (per capita spending way up) in faculty hires and facilities improvements.Villanova's only advantage over Temple, as far as I can tell, is that it's located in a very scenic, wealthy, and safe community, while Temple is, to put it mildly, in a tough part of town.

Yea, I mean it's possible. You all are pretending like US News has a good methodology here. Still -- it seems curious. We shall see for sure in five days.
Apparently Temple's reputation scores were a 2.6/2.9 this year..I don't know what they were in 05, but in 04 they were 2.6/3.1. Maybe that had something to do with it.
