This is definetely a FLAME, Post A FULL page.  Neither pictures show a full list of categories.  WHere is the employment rate or faculty ratio.   Nice Try FLAMER.  Look at Peer Assessment Score.  There is a hyphen between assess-ment.  That NEVER happens in USNEWS when they do a table. 

It's usually like this

Peer
Assessment
score

NOT
Peer assess-
ment Score.

They NEVER use hyphens, there are at least 2 uses of hyphenated words.  Look at the previous years issues.

YOU ARE SO LAME>

Uh, its like that in the 2006 online version.

http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/rankings/law/brief/lawrank_brief.php

yeah but he's not creating an online version

http://www.utexas.edu/law/academics/advocacy/USNewsRankings2006

print version from last year

Yeah, I was mainly just pointing out that they've done it before.

WELL, if we were talking about the 2007 Online Edition I would be wrong.  But I think when someone post pictures of a supposedly 2007 PRINT edition then reference to the 2006 Print Edition is more informative then the 2006 ONLINE Edition. 

Also the print is TOO LARGE, the gaps between categories is TOO LARGE as compared to the 2006 PRINT EDITION.  LAME POST. Harvard will never overtake Yale.  Harvard class size is too large to build a comparable LSAT median score as Yale. 

That is all.

Anyways, I don't care.  I'm just pointing out that a hyphen wouldn't be coming from left field.

This was already disproved in a different thread...

The biggest indicator that this is fake is that US News doesn't include numbers from part time programs in their totals, however the document in the picture includes this data...look at Gerogetown, Fordham and GW

for example, the 25-75% LSAT numbers or Georgetown should be 167-170, however, they are not. With the PT data included, the end up being 165-169, and that is what this fake document shows

It looks like someone just got the data off of LSAC.org from the 'Totals' column of the ABA data for all the schools...they probably weren't aware that the PT data doesn't get factored into the US News #s

all he/she has to do is post a cover scan and a full page scan and we can verify.

but alas, this has not been done which screams flame.

we need to develop some patience.
