Tulane will drop ever so slightly I think. SMU might as well. Houston will continue downward as will Baylor.

Amazingly, I agree with all of these, but you forgot Stanford and Penn.

my 2 cents

75th Percentile LSAT: 161
Median LSAT: 159
25th Percentile LSAT: 155

UF dropping is a safe bet. Going to a 400 person class is going to hurt the school tremendously. No way they ever get back up to numbers from a 200 person class

So we have the obvious drops (Columbia, Penn, Standford) what about the Thomas Cooley's; the schools on the clear upswing?


What would you do if TC ended up in tier 2 this next cycle?

Stanford stays above Harvard, but NYU falls one spot to tie with Chicago.  Penn stays the same.  Michigan falls one spot.

maybe they would stop publishing their own rankings?

oh man...i chose indiana for more than just their ranking, but id be pissed off if they stopped being tier 1. I don't see them dropping from 37 to 51 tho.
I always keep it real and i call no man mister.
