Has it occurred to anyone that the a school's ranking at the time of admission is meaningless in comparison to its ranking in the spring of 2nd year when you interview for summer associateships?  Rankings are probably more relevant upon graduation than they are at admission. 

Anyone have the 2010 rankings handy?

Not the whole thing, just the T14:

1.  Princeton
2.  Yale
3.  Harvard
3.  NYU
5.  Stanford
6.  Columbia
7.  Michigan
7.  Penn
9.  Brown
9.  Chicago
11. Boalt
12. UVa
13. Duke
14. Georgetown (in perpetuity)

HTH.

Maybe. Still waiting on more decisions and have some non law options on the table.

dilemmae

::raises eyebrow::

No one else bit?  If we're speaking Latin here, I believe you'd have dilemmata on your hands.

Well damn, I was hoping it was an actual plural form. Oh well.

I was equally devestated to learn that penii is not the plural of penis (it's penes if you want to be fun).

my god, johnny, how did you get into UVA and NYU without being able to pluralize latin properly.

i am sorely disappointed son

You forget that I majored in linguistics. When it comes to language, I do what I want. None of this prescriptivist bull for me.

well, excccuuuuuuuuusssseeeee me....i'm a HISTORY major, so i can say with authority that people who cannot conjugate latin correctly, more than not, meet a dismal end. hello, ceasar? the only thing he could conjugate was "es tu, brutus?" lame.

i have no idea what that word means, haha

HTH.

So NU buys Princeton's name and spacelaw program and PWNS everyone? SWeet!

Actually, they combine with Cornell to form a NY/NJ/Chi megaschool with an emphasis on work history and spacelaw. The build bridges between each campus with bullet trains that travel 500 mph, but only people majoring in spacelaw can ride them. Which, luckily, is everyone, since they now require it [kinda like Michigan and international (oops, I mean transnational) law].
