U.S. News Rankings: 2015 v. 2014 Changes in All 11 Categories for All 194 Law Schools

U.S. News 2015Brian Huddleston (Senior Reference Librarian, Loyola (New Orleans)) has compiled this wonderful 29-page color-coded chart showing the changes in this year's U.S. News Law School Rankings from last year's rankings in all eleven of the published U.S. News rankings categories for each of the 194 law schools:

  • Green:  school improved in category in this year's rankings
  • Red:  school declined in category in this year's rankings
  • Yellow:  school's performance in category in this year rankings is same as last year

Top 3

(Note that Brian uses 2014 to refer to the rankings released in March 2014, and 2013 to refer to the rankings released in March 2013. In usual rankings parlance, these are referred to as the 2015 rankings and the 2014 rankings.)

But, which of these changes are statistically significant? Flagging as "red" a decrease of 0.1% is probably statistically meaningless!
