Think this looks legit?  If it is, some interesting changes...

If it's fake, it took some real effort.  Props to whomever. 

Oh, and if it's real: Michigan at 6, baby!

That said, it seems unlikley that Michigan could jump that many points, especially without a significant gain in reputation score, and it's all-too-coincidental that the picture cuts off all of the other data.

Well, I'm rooting for U of M to move up/stay high too so that you guys all continue to leave the state upon graduation so us Wayne State people will continue to have our pick of the jobs in the Detroit area.. ;D

Unfortunately, though, this one is fake...though a good fake

While I would love to see WI above W & L, I doubt that would happen.

WIth NYU stealing all that prestigious faculty and Penn's selectivity going insane, I cant imagine theyd drop so behind. Maybe NYU, but Penn?

I dont buy it. Ill beleive it when I see it on their website.

I think I can confirm this is a fake...

US News doesn't include (or never has in the past) data from part-time programs, however, that data is included in these numbers for the schools that have part-time programs...

Look at Georgetown, Fordham, GW and compare it to the data at LSAC.org...

Looks like someone just went through the new ABA data on LSAC.org and just used the information in the 'Total' column, which gives accurate numbers for all the schools that don't have part-time numbers, but not for the ones that do...

...my guess is that they were probably unaware that US News doesn't include the part-time data when they made this....

Anyway, all they'd have to do is enter the data into Excel, add the column titles to the top and then print it out and take a picture...
