I agree- there was a huge uproar at the school and the former dean claimed that the president had a personal vendetta against him and that was the REAL reason. Who knows what it was, but after complaints by alumni, students, etc. he wasn't rehired. I think one of the reasons the rank is low is because of not enough library volumes. Well, whose fault is that? Oh well. Bottom line- low ranking or not, with this school in particular, it had a good reputation a few decades ago and its alum hire alum. That's how it goes. So, yeah, who cares. I don't want to work for big law anyway. I'd rather swallow a box of nails than be treated like scum by ReedSmith and have no family or life.
