These rankings just show me how much of  a crapshoot it is once you get out of the top 40- I think its safe to say that Tier 2 schools are roughly the same and any year to year movement cannot be taken as a trend.


Just one quick example- I am deciding between Temple and Seton Hall (with 24K) and last year the difference was 30 spots- 59-89.   That seems pretty significant.

This year..its 65-83..which looks a lot closer.

But did anything really change in the schools?  Of course not.


And regarding Cardozo- it will be interesting to see if people change their tune about Brooklyn being clearly behind them now that  they are tied.

Again, these rankings are fun but to me all this fluctuation in the second tier proves most of the schools are very similiar.

I believe St. Johns was 77, Catholic 85.

It is only a magazine ranking.  

That said, I guess US News agrees with what I have said here for a long time now, there is really no meaningful difference between BLS and Cardozo.  You will be fine at either one.  

And it will take a long time before Cardozo can realize its dreams of rivaling Fordham.

I just visited my local B&N and saw the ranking in person. I didn't buy a copy though ($10!) so I won't be able to post the rest of the ranking.

DePaul did not make Tier 2. Surprisingly, Penn State did!

The employment numbers @ grad for BC was pretty depressing (~77%) vs BU's 89.3%.

Cardozo and Brooklyn tied, as mentioned above. Cardozo's IP rank went up to 5. GW's IP rank went down to 3 (Stanford is now 2). Not that the specialty rankings really matter much.
