Will Hastings overtake Davis in 2009?
« on: May 10, 2007, 04:17:05 PM »
Davis didn't move at all from last year, while Hastings made a huge jump.  I don't know for sure, but it has been mentioned that Hastings used to be a top 20 school.  Does anyone think that they will remain relatively close together in the rankings or do you think that Hastings will climb faster than Davis?  Thoughts, opinions, observations, commentaries, etc.

I don't understand unless you are calling Cal a troll.  In that case, I agree with you.

Doesn't really matter.  Hastings is the school for the Bay area, Davis is the school for Sacramento.

Hastings has a decent chance to overtake Davis with the new library, etc..  It probably won't make it back into the top 20 any time soon, however.  Good school nonetheless.

I found this spreadsheet on another thread.

http://members.aol.com/stuje1/lawrankings.xls

According to it Hastings has only been ranked higher than Davis for two years since 1990 ('99-'00). Even if Hastings were to overtake Davis in '09 I think it will be short lived. Also, even if Hastings were to be ranked higer than Davis in '09 (and maybe even for a few years after), with such a solid history of Davis being slightly higer than Hastings I think professionally Davis will hold more prestige for a for several more years.

With that said, both are great schools, and when it comes down to it I think the biggest difference between them is not the rankings but the programs they offer.

In Sacramento, maybe; anywhere else, no.
