Texas Lawyer, Which Texas Law School Zoomed Up in Rankings?:
Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth zoomed up in the 2017 Best Law Schools rankings compiled and made public this week by U.S. News & World Report.
Texas A&M ranked 111th on the list this year, up from 149th the previous year.
Andrew Morriss, dean of the Texas A&M law school, wrote in an email that the school's investment in new faculty (12 hired last year) paid off in its reputation scores, used for the magazine's ranking. The dean also credited for the ranking rise the school's decisions to cut class size over two years from 240 to 140, boost scholarships, and slash tuition by more than 15 percent. "That enabled us to be the fifth most selective school in the country," Morriss wrote.
