Exactly.... hopefully my LSAT will lock in a spot with the BOD finalists and not preclude acceptance  :o

Anyway, I just wanted to thank Ninja for all his effort creating and maintaining this. Sounds like something I would do and get bored with after a first round then stop... I'm sure it takes a lot of work to get all of it together.

Umm, last I checked IU Bloomington is a pretty good school .  Sure it's no UPenn, but it's certainly every bit as good as American WCL. 

How do you figure people are misinformed?  Or are you saying that it's a better school than the votes reflect?

I think he's saying IUB should have done better. But it moved on, and that's what counts. I'll probably rank schools eliminated in the same round by the votes they receive, but until then, IUB it still fighting the good fight.

Also yes, Samford is a better school than its ranking here shows, but the University of North Dakota is a better school than the 4th Tier. There's always injustice in rankings.

On the likelihood of our T25 = the USNWR T25, I don't think it will be exact. Due to the random groupings, we're almost guaranteed to lose some high ranking schools before the end. Also, for my money, Harvard will win.

And thank you to everyone that's supportive in our little endeavor. I don't mind running it, I have a lot of free time before I start law school, it keeps me busy, and it keeps you guys distracted from dwelling on your LSAT.
I'mma stay bumpin' till I bump my head on my tomb.

Thank goodness that whole thing is behind me now.  All that's left is this pesky little formality they call Law School!

Shenanigans! The BOD admin can't make predictions about the winner
