Instead of reporting its median LSAT score was 160, Pepperdine Law admitted making a reporting mistake because the school had submitted to USNWR a median LSAT score of 162. At 162, Pepperdine would have jumped 13 spots to 59 from 72. The school claims that at 160, Pepperdine would have been ranked 62 or 64. “Would have been,” because US News refused to recalculate the school’s rank and issue a new rankings list prior to the official release of the 2019 Law School Rankings [here]. Instead, Pepperdine received a death sentence because US News removed Pepperdine’s ranking altogether. No law school marketing fodder using the overall Best Law School ranking for Pepperdine Law this year. — Joe
