I'm just sitting here shaking my head in horror.

I'll say basically what I just said in my own thread:

You invest in a JD for the long term. Over the course of your career your school will fall and rise at least three spots multiple times. (Obvious exceptions: HYS).

If you are going to look at rankings look at long term trends; they at least indicate whether a school is generally on the rise or on the decline. If a drop of three spots or a rise of one spot matters this much to you you have some really serious ego problems.

What about a 20 spot drop?

Z, you forget that Mommy and Daddy aren't familiar with Northwestern, Cornell, etc. However, Mommy and Daddy are familiar with the numbers 12, 13, etc. I just want them to love me.

Just kidding?

if this is a dig at my post i don't know that its neccesary.  if i'm going to invest 160K in a degree, i want to pick a stock thats rising or staying the same, not falling.  and thats not to say that UT is not a good school because it fell two places this year.  but looking at the data over time i'm not as sure in my "investment" there as i would be at other schools.  especially if one is out of state and is counting on the national reputation.

Oh no, hon, I'm sorry.  I didn't mean to insult your post (to be honest, I didn't even see it).

TX was just my reach school (who rejected me) so I figure I get to poke a little fun at it.  No worries.  ;)

I think the point is that the job market for UT won't magically shrivel, even if it fell into the 20s. Employers know UT. That's all that matters.
