What's been said is true.  Washington U's law school has risen through the rankings pretty quickly, but it's current ranking is relatively new.  So granted, it's not going to have the same national name recognition as a lot of other schools.  I know very little about how it competes in the midwestern markets.

All that said, it seems like a good school.  I agree with ametonym, you all should research it before writing it off just because it's a "new" school that relatively few people in the legal community have heard of.  Over time, it's reputation will surely grow. 

Getting in on the ground floor might be kind of neat in the long run, too.  Think about it... if it continues to slowly inch up the rankings into the top 20, and you go there, in 15 years you can say "I went to Washington University right when it was really starting to take off."  I can't imagine that would be a bad thing to be able to say.
