2010 rankings leaked
« on: April 19, 2009, 12:58:00 PM »
LegalGeekery.com has a link to the top 50 or so leaked law schools available at http://i41.tinypic.com/rvalag.jpg

I make no representations as to its authenticity. I just passed it along for those who might be interested.

You think so?  I think this looks fairly authentic.

Look at the heading. It says "Education" at the top. It doesn't look real.

In any case, has anyone actually checked out that site?  I had never heard of it before today, but legalgeekery.com seems to be pretty cool... plenty of reference information as well as some humor.

Subtle legalgeekery.com trolling.

Well...here's a clue...IU Bloomington is #23 on the list, which would be one of the most significant jumps ever. And Fordham drops to #30? For what reason? PT numbers aren't being calculated in the same metrics as FT, and Fordham has some of the best FT numbers in the country. If anything, I wouldn't be surprized to see Fordham RISE a notch or two. UC Davis leapfrogs over Hastings back to #35, where it was in 2003 or so? Vandy, which has been knocking on T14 for the last two years is now below Texas? Right! Vandy has gotten better. Don't be shocked if Cornell or GULC falls out of T14 b/c of Vandy or even UCLA.

The guy who created this is an IUB Law student or a recent IUB graduate...probably one who was rejected by Hastings and Fordham. lol.

Yeah... that is kind of what it is.  Except that I had never heard of the site before today.   ::)

It's actually the same pic that leaked on TLS last night... I think that's where they took the photo from.  Here's a link to that thread: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69124.  It has been widely debated as to whether the leak is real or not.  Personally, I'm inclined to think it is legit.

No way.
