"The Wasserstein family donated $25 million to Harvard Law School for the construction of a major building that will include an academic center, student center, and space for clinics, the school announced yesterday. It is the second-largest donation ever received by the school."

It's going to open in 2011, though. And they're demolishing Wyeth Hall and a parking structure. Eh, we'll see how it shakes out.

Sorry - I don't think this counts as direct expenditures on students, only indirect, which would help Harvard very very little. No way H is making up those 10 points on Y. Not ever.

Yeah, I realize, but cool nonetheless. There's some paper floating around that proves that, given the USNW ranking system, Yale's avg. LSAT could drop to 155 and still outrank Harvard. :(
