1) Penn/Yale 3) Columbia (For you tm.) 4) Stanford 5) Harvard6) Chicago 7) UVA Mich 9) Georgetown10) Berkeley Notes: 1) Criteria for # 1... number of kasm's and whether your name is yale 2) Gtown beats out Duke and Cornell for t10 because... location location location! 3) UVA beats Mich because... location location location! Warm > Cold 4) Berkley... ummm... never impressed me. Meh? And despite the number of wonderful amazing boalt people on LSD... hippies aren't my thing 5) Columbia = 2... because tm. is there. Once he graduates it will no longer be there. 6) Stanford... I still love you even though you rejected me. 7) Harvard is harvard... I suppose it deserves to be toward the top? again, Meh? Chicago: Pro-Scalia taught there Con-Obama taught there /end of procrastination.
correct me if i'm wrong, but this isn't the most recent data (for the class entering fall '08), is it? i ask because in that spreadsheet ucla has 5,834 applications, but they've made a big deal of saying that last cycle they had over 8,000 apps (which was up from that 5800 total the year before) - so the trends you're noticing are actually going in the opposite direction - harvard reports on its website that its 25th and 75th lsat for the class entering fall '08 are 170 and 176, columbia's (again...website) are 170 and 175, chicago's are 169 and 173, etc...(as an edit, if those kinda drops were really happening, a shitload of admission deans would be getting fired - )
