This list would be a lot more useful if there was a second ranking, adjusted to reflect the relative size of each law school's class. Harvard and Georgetown have among the largest graduating classes in the nation, especially among the top tier schools.

Given Baltimore's presence on the Anziska/Strauss target list, one would never have guessed that it does very well in biglaw placement relative to its US News rank.

Further evidence that the Anziska/Strauss list is rather random.
