The U.S. Information Legislation College Ratings: Say Hi To The New T14
Following up in this week’s posts:
David Lat (Authentic Jurisdiction), The U.S. Information Ratings: Say Hi To The New T14:
Some observations: …
- [T]hese are the similar 14 colleges because the conventional T14, with one exception—UCLA edging out Georgetown for #14.
- Stanford Legislation has stuck up with Yale Legislation—no longer simply in disruptive protests, however in U.S. Information. For what I imagine to be the primary time within the ratings, Yale is tied for #1 quite than by myself at #1. Is that this an indication that SLS is gaining on YLS, such that Stanford may well be the undisputed #1 in some long run yr? Keep tuned.
- As used to be the case in closing yr’s ratings, the “Holy Trinity” of “HYS”—Harvard, Yale, Stanford—used to be disrupted. As soon as once more, Chicago took the #3 spot, forward of Harvard, and Harvard needed to percentage the #4 spot—closing yr with Columbia, this yr with Penn. (Sniffed a chum of mine who’s an HLS alum, “HLS tied with UPenn displays those ratings are meaningless.”) …
- Total, there wasn’t a lot motion throughout the T14—and I’m guessing this used to be by means of design, with U.S. Information and ratings guru Bob Morse experimenting with other weightings of things till they were given a outcome that regarded “proper.” Of the 14 colleges, most effective 4 moved by means of greater than a unmarried spot. The colleges that moved up by means of a couple of spot have been Duke (+5), Northwestern (+3), and Penn (+2), and just one college moved down by means of a couple of spot, Columbia (-4).
- For a very long time, Columbia and NYU have been observed as “T6” colleges (in conjunction with HYS plus Chicago). However now NYU is again within the T6, after falling to #7 closing yr, whilst Columbia has been relegated to #8. Recruiting for CLS simply were given more difficult—and I think this U.S. Information drop may have way more of an have an effect on than the recruiting boycott of more than a few affinity teams within the wake of the Columbia Legislation Instagram controversy. (Through the best way, the Instagram put up in query is nonetheless up—and I’m guessing that it is going to be staying up, boycott or no longer.)
