How Employment Data Skews Law Rankings
Thanks to one of my clients who forwarded me this link today – it’s about what will happen to law school rankings in US News once employment data is required to be just a little more truthful.
The most important thing to notice is what I always tell my clients – Don’t limit yourself to an arbitrary ranking when choosing schools. If you say “I will only go to a Top 30 School”, then what happens when the Top 30 changes slightly the following year? Did you pick a bad school? Of course not. Law schools do not fundamentally change in one year’s time, but the rankings have to change or poor U.S. News would sell no magazines or on-line subscription packages.
