Yay for UVA!
PS: someone should do rankings based on the average of peer assessment/lawyer's judges and student quality as it's measured by the lsat/gpa. Such rankings would be more legit than the current USNEWs.

I sure hope this is you; otherwise, I would suggest you stop plagiarizing other people's work and passing it off as your own.

Hmm... aren't the numbers for Judge/Lawyer Prestige Rankings readily available via US News (ie. it is one of the rated factors)?

If so, then there's no plagiarizing here and certainly no call for such a charge to be made here.  This person has simply ranked the school according to the US News Judge/Lawyer Prestige Rankings AND this person has cited that these numbers stem from the US News 2007 assessment.

Your charge would be warranted if perhaps the OP used the Preface in the XOXO thread but since the OP doesn't use it, I think your charge is both unjust and overly harsh.

It was the all-caps of the title PRESTIGE RANKINGS that bothered me; to me, this is clearly the same title as the xoxo post minus THE XOXO. Compare for yourself.

As an added criticism, I find it hard to believe two people would independently label the rankings as USN 2007 numbers when they come from the 2008 rankings.

Oh yes because nobody but that XOXO person would ever think to put PRESTIGE RANKINGS in call caps.   ::)

However I don't recall seeing any  8)  ;D  >:( in the XOXO post, so I guess those at least are original?

Also the OP has not copied the "Tier/Echelon" divisions found in the XOXO post.

I'm not saying there may not be a case for some parallels but it most certainly is not an exact copy and when you come right down to it, the numbers used are available from US News (i.e. both the XOXO poster and the OP have the same source cited for their data).  The worst that could be said is that the format is similar but the WORK is primarily credited to US News (i.e. the XOXO poster did NOT collect all that data on his or her own).

I suppose I could accept the rather severe charge of plagiarism if the OP had tried to pass off the same sentiments & reasoning that are found in the XOXO post Preface, but that doesn't appear here.  So I think the charge was rather nasty and somewhat uncalled for without more substantial evidence of "theft of ideas".

But then maybe I'm just wary of being the first one to "cast stones"?

Or perhaps I just appreciate the OP's posting of this info since I don't waste my time wading through the CRAP that floods XOXO (you get 1 nugget of useful info for every thousand posts of TTT or racist/sexist remarks or comparisons of female law student "assets" or other such BS!)  ::)

Question then: what do the asterisks and crosses mean?

The poster did not say he did it, nor did he say he copied it.  He just posted a list that some people might be interested in, it is ok not to cite internet message board posts...

Yeah, I suppose you're right... still, I thought something like this counts as copyright infringement? My knowledge of IP is very lmited, but I thought copyright was "granted" automatically.
