Law Schools Most Helped and Most Hurt by U.S. News Rankings Methodology
On Monday, we blogged J. Gordon Hylton's interesting law school rankings that isolate the faculty and student quality data from the U.S. News rankings. As Gordon explains in The US News and World Report Rankings Without the Clutter:
The only categories that should matter in law school rankings are the quality of the students and the quality of the faculty....Peer assessment tells us what other law professors think about individual law schools; LSAT scores tell us what students think about the school. I have recalculated the US News and World Report Ratings using the “2007” data (actually compiled in 2005) for my two categories.
Gordon updated his rankings yesterday because he had inadvertently omitted one law school. In addition, he published Law Schools Helped and Hurt by the US News Formula.
