In April 2004, the school changed its name to the MSU College of Law. Although it operates as a constituent college of the university, the college of law remains financially independent and receives no state or university funding. Initially, upon moving to the Michigan State Campus, the school was ranked as a fourth tier law school. The school's ranking is expected to increase dramatically with its close connection to a Big Ten institution. A strong indicator of this predicted leap in ranking is the law school's increased recommended LSAT for admissions, which has jumped from an average of 150 to nearly 160 over the course of two years.[citation needed] The 2008 U.S. News and World Report currently ranks MSU Law as a third-tier school.
