BTW --- I never paid for the 08 edition.  I'm logged into an account with the 07 edition and all the new rankings are there. 

Are the rankings available to everybody now?

But Z!! OMFG TX DROPPED 2 SPOTS!!!11!1one! Now anyone who goes there is going to be stuck in some TTT job!

true dat

/i'll take their spot

that was my FIRST thought when i saw it. I thought "wow. it's possible that someone might actually choose another school over Texas because of this. I might get in off the wait list!" Because I'll certainly take Texas over the new 16th ranked schools.

Why no love for USC?

1. I believe Texas to be a better school than USC or indeed many of the T14 schools.
2. I'm a Texan, and I'd love to return to Austin. LA scares me as my other post indicates.
3. I do like USC, and its inderdisciplinary academic study really appeals to me, but that doesn't mean I'd pick it over Texas.
4. Texas is much cheaper.

Ok those are valid reasons - still hope to meet you at ASW though!

8 schools in the top 10 have to settle for ties. Stupid.

Current methodology sucks. Everyone knows NYU is not > Columbia and Chicago, Penn is not equal to Chicago, and Duke is not equal to UVA.

The reputation ratings are reality.

What methodology is this based on? I'm assuming reputation ratings, since they're reality. So the quality of a school now is determined by people who haven't been to law school in 30 years? Why is that a better indicator?

Oooh engaged by Johnny on the spot!

You have my opinion. This is too much to get into now, and it would just be a retread of many other discussions in this forum, anyway. I just don't feel motivated to type a book now. But you should go ahead.  

For what it's worth, I think I tend to agree with you maybe. I think NYU is probably a bit overrated, but I don't mind reaping those benfits.  ;D

I have absolutely no reason to feel this way, but I can't believe that GW dropped below BU.  It just doesn't seem right to me.

tag...this is pretty entertaining. Every year I expect Chicago to move up a spot, but now its 10 years at #6 (Ok, I really haven't waited a decade...that would be strange :P)
