Google Law School Rankings.

I don't understand it, but it looks nice to me:
  1. Harvard
  2. Stanford
  3. Yale
  4. Michigan
  5. Columbia
  6. Chicago
  7. Cornell
  8. Brooklyn
  9. Vanderbilt
  10. NYU
  11. North Dakota
  12. Wisconsin
  13. Pennsylvania
  14. Suffolk
  15. New York Law School
  16. UC-Berkeley
  17. Minnesota
  18. Notre Dame
  19. Tulane
  20. George Washington
  21. Vermont
  22. Indiana-Bloomington
  23. Texas
  24. Widener
  25. University of Washington

But where's NYU? That's what you get for calling yourself "School of Law" instead of "Law School."

ADDED: Oops. NYU's at 10, but it's at #1 if you use "School of Law" as the search term.

Towns go that way, too. There's a Department of Water instead of a Water Department.

Apparently somebody looked it up and found ``water'' wasn't an adjective, and figured that was that for the language. Attributive nouns have not been heard of.

Ask any word expert.

According to them, "[r]esults based on Google search for 'law school' on October 30, 2007." Silly, really, but it will still cause the administrators at Texas (23), Virginia (62) and Georgetown (72), amnog others, some agitur: why aren't those kids googling our school?

Boalt at #16. Lots of antipathy for Berkeley.

Too Liberal.

"Detailed Nuances"

"Sumptious embellishments"

Kmart’s home-goods relaunch is not all about Martha, however. Its contract with Martha Stewart Living is set to expire in 2009, and Kmart in September introduced a new line of proprietary home goods called Abbey Hill. The new private brand features sheet sets at $29.99 and extra-thick, no-lint bath towels. All of the new home merchandise is being presented with an eye toward helping customers better mix and match colors and patterns, executives say."

"But I own this website, so I also reserve the right to enforce some rules: Keep it pithy. Stay on topic. Be intelligent. Agree or disagree but don't make it personal. Remember that your comments will reach a big national and international audience of DHD readers. Fine to post anonymously, but try to ID yourself generally, like, "I'm a writer", "I'm a producer," "I'm a wannabe..." Your comments won't be edited but they also won't post automatically. I have to approve them first. And I plan on being picky."

Where is that now?

Richard Fagin said...

U.S. Distict Court Judge David Hittner and Univ. of Houston Law Center Prof. Irene Rosenberg (both NYU '64) will be pleased to see their school's ranking.

Is Tulane really in the top 20, after all its reorganization after the storm? I guess that's good news.

see: #431:sexism/sexual intercourse/ho- mophobia for the complete text for Ann only allows me 200 words
1) Simon, quoting me, that "Hillary is a bitch" asks how she "escapes responsibility" for feminist nonsense, describing Hillary as "voluntarily" choosing that garbage... as if we (especially women) really have "free will". On that,see New York Times ( p.1, 7-21-07) and my further answer below.
2) Paco Wave (see my evisceration of his/her position below)
3) Ann Althouse (see my discussion of "worms" and gays below)
4) rcocean ( discussion of "gaes" A.K.A. faggots, fudge-packers, rump-riders, wrong-/rear-end boys, fairies... , "strong" women, butch dykes -and how a man can sing soprano without becoming a catastrati )
5) Simon ("gaes" love strong [real] women).
6) Revenant ( "tc IS action-packed concerning women" ; see above )
7) Ann Althouse (still stuck in a 50-year old past)
8) rcocean ( "batty-men" are a.k.a. faggots...)
9) rcocean ( real strong women are wives -and homophobia is necessary, has been selected for by evolution. AND a healthy homophobia that denies -truthfully- that men and women are equal is exactly what we need to save the human race from imminant destruction/suicide)
10) Ann Althouse is still stuck in a fictional past

Where's UVA?? Virginia was always in the top 10-15 for as long as I can remember.
