If you still can't get the new rankings...

1) Close down all your Internet Explorer windows
2) Go to your cookies folder (usually at C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Cookies)--it may be HIDDEN so you might need to type it into the address bar,
3) Delete the cookies @usnews.com and @www.usnews.com (just these 2). 
4) Go back to the US News website and login BEFORE you access the rankings.
5) Enjoy.

PS: I logged out and when I came back, the old rankings returned.  I went and deleted my cookies again and they came back.  Figures...

Get help...........IMMEDIATELY.

Also for the record, why the hell do people care if their school is in Tier 3 or 4?  Unless it's borderline Tier2/Tier3 and you think it might make a jump up or down, it DOES NOT MATTER.  Just pick the school you feel most comfortable at and where you think you can excel while receiving a decent education.

I enrolled at MSU when they were a border T2/T3 school (2 yr ago) and last year they dropped to T4 (allegedly because of mistakes in reporting) ... curious if there were really "mistakes".

Agreed.
Though, one can argue that the rankings are meaningless beyond the Top 25/Top 50 as well.

Subtle Fordham troll.

So, University of Hawaii dropped out of the second tier. :(

Don't worry, U of Hawaii is slightly less TTT because it's the only law school in the state, and it's frickin Hawaii.

Well, as the only ABA law school in the Pacific Ocean and for thousands of miles, I suspect Hawaii Law grads will continue doing just fine. Particularly with the new Volcano Law Clinic.

MSU is back to T3. 
N/A 2.2 3.0 3.05-3.67 155-160 40.2% 20.0 N/A  86.4% 77.6%/MI 74%

UDM is T4.
N/A 1.5 1.8 3.00-3.50 147-153 46.2% 17.8 N/A  89.9% 69.2%/MI 74%

Toledo is #85
40 2.0 2.4 3.02-3.82 155-160 21.5% 14.1 84.8%  96.4% 78.1%/OH 80%

and I can't seem to find Wayne.  Seriously, I've looked like 5 times and Wayne is nowhere to be found.  I'll check again tomorrow.

anyone got a handy guide to what other pages in this thread have rankings on them?
