On Monday, I blogged the lists of the Top 10 law schools in eleven categories posted on Princeton Review's web site in connection with its publication of the 2009 edition of Best 174 Law Schools. The rankings are the result of Princeton Review's survey of 18,000 students at the 174 law schools, along with school statistics provided by administrators.
With the help of my assistant, I have extracted from the individual profiles of the 174 law schools all of the available data to rank the schools in six categories. I will report each day on one of the ranking categories.
Professors Accessible: Based on law student opinion. We asked law students to rate how accessible the law faculty members at their schools are on a scale from 60 to 99. Here are the law schools with the most and least accessible professors [click on chart to enlarge]:
Unfortunately, the Princeton Review did not release the response rate per school, so it is impossible to determine how the rankings are affected by each school's representation among the respondents. For the 2008 Princeton Review Professor Accessibility Rankings, see here.
