I have the actual copy of the rankings. The rankings are accurate.

Can you post UT's reputation scores, please?  Both if you can! thx

4.0/4.3

Yep!

Thanks guys!  So it looks like lower bar passage and jobs at graduation is what sunk UT in the rankings this year.

Vandy and USC now have equal LSAT medians and better GPA medians.  I think that was a major factor.

Hmm, well GPA went down quite a bit. But it went down for other schools in that range, and UT's 75% LSAT is still better than USC and Vandy. Personally, I'm more worried that compared to other peer schools, UT has the lowest percentage of grads employed 9 months after graduation (95% vs. 98% at USC and 99% at UCLA and Vandy).  I realize that statistic can be gamed, but still, that worries me, especially since UT graduates a huge class and that 2% drop over last year isn't just two people with no social skills.

columbia's wikipedia page has not been updated.  ;)
Narrator: You had to give it to him: he had a plan. And it started to make sense, in a Tyler sort of way. No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

Tyler Durden: Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing.

NYU's Dean of Admissions is going to roll around naked in a pile of USNWR rankings tonight, like that scene in Indecent Proposal.

I wasn't aware that NYU had ever outranked Columbia before.

Vandy beats UT in unbiased firm placement studies.

Interesting, can you please give me a link?  Those are my top two choices, and I'd love any info on placement beyond what's on their websites.

UT is a festering TTT in decline. They do produce excellent snipers though.
Go with Vanderbilt, you can end up like Al Gore.
Look, I just need something to read. Pop-pop gets a Grisham?
