I know no one really cares but Rutgers also wins for most improved. +30 spots!

Personally, I think the least surprising thing about this is Berk down 4.

This might be a dumb question but anyone have insight into why HLS dropped below SLS?

GULC just got BTFO

Also all the UC's with the exception of UCLA (+2) and UCI (no movement) dropped down in the list.

Real reason is the rankings people trying to create buzz and be relevant.
As far as what could actually have had an impact: H's median dropped from 173 to 172 last cycle.

I woke up this morning. Saw the rankings, and immediately thought about how much I can not wait to see all the GULC trolling.

Pretty surprised they actually did it, I'm glad they finally broke up some of those ties

Rutgers combined Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden into a single law school so that probably dramatically shifted a lot of the inputs into whatever formula the rankings use, seemingly for the better.

S is just a better school because of its smaller class size, which I think is apparent in the clerking numbers

grades??

Yeah I guess. I would just assume that since they have around the same employment stats overall and for big law that H would have the advantage, stats-wise since they do have the bigger class

Finally know why they call Berk a black box-- because they both fall out of the sky.
