Tier 1 score range: 100-51
Tier 2 score range: 49-38

I would not get too excited either way if your school moved a few spots in T2.

For what it's worth, Rutgers Newark isn't generally regarded as the best school in NJ.  Come to South Jersey and ask them what they think.

Princeton is much more prestigious.

130 if you're joking
120 if you're serious

I thought Fayetteville Arkansas was guaranteed T2 this year?
 >:(

Yeah same here... weren't they T2 in 2004? Why haven't they been able to bounce back?

Interesting for NJ...Rutgers-Newark now behind both RU-Camden and Seton Hall, even though RU-Newark is generally regarded as the best school in NJ.

LSAT/GPA and bar passage look like the killers for RU-Newark.  To their credit, they don't seem to have any desire to push up admission stats for ranking purposes.

I know i was surprised as well.  I'll still choose ru-n over the other two.

As happy as I am to be heading to GW in the fall, I have to agree with the others here suzie.  If you were set or near set on BU, don't let one ranking change switch you.  I assure you, its not going to affect BUs recruitment, nor will it affect GWs. 

US News has to change how they rank schools enough each year to illustrate various subtle and some not so subtle changes.  By doing this, they assure that people will go out and buy their magazine (or at least pirate it off of xoxo)  ;D.

No, they change their formula every year because they work from the premise that Yale has to be #1.



Conspiracy theorist!

You might be right though  :-\, and I <3 you anyway  :-*

I don't think that is true lilly.  I think yale will automatically always be #1 strictly because of its small class size.  Its alot harder to have a high median LSAT as opposed to a high mean (especially with AA).

Rankings are skewed towards small schools, but Lily does have a point, there are other small schools, why not them?  Chicago, Penn, etc
