New U.S. News Rankings to be Released on April 15

U.S. News Robert Morse, Director of Data Research at U.S. News & World Report, announced yesterday that the new law school rankings will be released April 15:

This year, we have improved and modified both our part-time J.D. and part-time M.B.A. program ranking methodologies. U.S. News's new part-time law rankings are based on a 5.0-scale peer assessment survey, median LSAT scores and median undergraduate grade-point average for fall 2009 entering part-time students, and an exclusive part-time J.D. curriculum index that measures the extent to which a law school offers a rich part-time program to its students. U.S. News's previous part-time law school rankings were based solely on the number of times a part-time program was nominated to be among the 10 top programs.

Exactly why would peer/lawyer ratings change for PT programs? Last I checked its the same degree. Is there an asterisk on the diploma of a graduate who received his or her J.D. through the part-time program?
