I have for some time wondered at the attention people pay to the USNews rankings. The criteria are pretty loose, and include some PC tests.

Is is just me, or does anyone else think that not only do we have too many lawyers, but we have far too many law schools? Too many lawyers, have contributed to having such a bureaucratic and litigious society...perhaps if more people were to do something useful with their lives instead of becoming lawyers...

Just a thought.
