More About the Law School Rankings
As you know, I’ve done quite a bit of blogging on both the productive and detrimental reliance of law school applicants (and of the law schools themselves) on the U.S. News Rankings. As you know, the 2009 results have leaked. Here are two good postings you should read to help take the rankings with a grain of salt. The US News rankings are only useful in the appropriate context, so this information is vital to law school applicants:
- Information about Bar Passage rates as an ingredient in the rankings.
- For an example of how one ingredient (UGPA) is unlikely to change the worthiness of an entire law school.
I’m happy to answer any questions and to entertain comments on this. The magazines will be released tomorrow.
