Please note that these predictions are based only on publicly-available data, mostly information released by the ABA in their annual 509 reports. There is a good deal of private data that does not factor into our predictions, such as expenditures and assessment scores. Over half of the ranking score is calculated based on this unavailable data. What is nice is that a large chunk of private data, the two assessment scores, is generally quite stable from year to year. That makes it more possible to estimate the impact changes in publicly-available data will have on a law school's ranking.
