After researching the school more and its history I have much more respect for Michigan Law, although before researching thoroughly I didn't feel it deserved its reputation. But I wonder why the school's ranking has steadily declined from third in 1987 to ninth in 2010. The school's lsat and gpa medians are clearly lower than schools like Columbia but why has the school been unable to attract the talent to stay as a top 5 school?
Who has the latest usnews rankings and can tell me the percentage employed at graduation and the percentage employed 9 months after graduation? I have an old rankings mag that puts Michigan at a dismal 93% at graduation and 98% 9 months out.
