All those programs and we’re in the 60s?

The overall ranking is separate from the individual rankings, and use a different methodology.

The individual program rankings are based on reputation surveys of academians.

The overall law school ranking is based on a variety of quantitative factors, with academic reputation playing on a small role.

Guess we upped our game of manipulating data to give to us news…

After reading about a couple of universities fudging data to get higher rankings I don’t put much stock in these ratings anymore.


Oh absolutely. You should see the recently released law school rankings. Harvard Law at number 5?


USNWR is just mad that Harvard, Yale and Penn have all told them to buzz off. More are going to do it.
