i also got the new ones...first logged into the old ones then tried the cntrol f5 and they resorted. may be a glitch though, and not the correct ones.  may also be a smart way to market the online version and get more sales.

If reputation rankings matter so much (according to that Loyola prof who wrote the paper), how does Penn stay ranked so high, when it has a worse reputation than Michigan, Virginia, and Berkeley?

Penn tied with Chicago is some screwed up sh*t.

NYU > Columbia is too

By the way, on the OP I took out the information people will have to eventually pay for. IT didn't seem right. I know that people will doubt the information on that basis, but there it is.

People still care about these things?

Why does a few positions bump or drop really matter? Seriously. Explain, please.

i don't really does from a year-to-year basis. I do find it interesting from a game standpoint. at least my preferences aren't changed a bit. I'd still take Michigan over Penn, Chicago or the two NY schools (if, theoretically i could get into ANY of those). I'd still take Texas over USC.

You have to wonder though, because a huge drop can certainly affect the amount of applications a school receives in the next cycle. A drop from Top 30 to Top 40 can definitely change whether people consider applying there.

I have another theory. Many people are waiting on the new rankings to choose their school. Is it possible that having a higher rank this year (say, NYU>CLS) might cause borderline candidates to choose NYU over CLS, which might lower NYU's LSAT/GPA enough that CLS vaults NYU next year? As an example.

San Diego - HUGE drop. Now at risk of dropping out of the top 100. Who would have guessed....

No, San Diego.  Miami dropped to 70, USD to 85.  Doesn't make sense to me...

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.
