Ummm....wow. Apparently Brian Leiter is not the only person with way too much time on their hands.

Here's a ranking: People with way too much time on their hands as judged by the ridiuculous ways they rank, and re-rank, and re-rank again, and, you knew it was coming, re-rank again, and again and again.....law schools:

1. Brian Leiter
**HUGE GAP***
2. The guy that came up with this ranking

Another way of looking at this important ranking:
56% - School of Law
20% - College of Law
19% - Law School
04% - Law Center
01% - Law

Now, let's find the different names for accounting schools.

So who's going to be lucky ABA-approved #200? ...and more importantly, will there be a cake & punch reception?

I think a ranking of people who rank the rankings is the inevitable next step.

I cannot believe someone made this sort list. Why? Why? Why?
