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

hope not  :-[

Why do people think CLS will fall? Who would go above them, Chicago? I can see CLS and Chi tying, but I doubt it. Prob. NYU and Chi tie, the rest of the T6 stay the same.

But who the @#!* knows, really?
I can't believe these obnoxious Michigan students, who use the board not to share information, but to socialize (as pathetic as that is)

NYU looks like their 25th LSAT fell to 167.



Where'd you find this?

If that is this most recent cycle it would mean a drop of a point.

Thanks. Interesting, but I think maybe this is from two cycles ago. We'll see...

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

I remember hearing that UF switched to fall only, but I have not heard anything about them sdropping their requirements.  How do you know they dropped?

I think you are right. NYU lists the 25th for the Fall 2006 entering class as 168 here: http://www.law.nyu.edu/depts/admissions/info/jd/classprofile.html

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

Tulane will have a drop once their post-katrina numbers come in, but I don't know if it is going to be big.

When will the rankings come out, or when do they usually come out?
