Among those he mentions are those already picked up on by TLS: Duke, Arizona State, UC Davis, Chapman, etc. He points out an interesting thing -- any school claiming above 95% employed at graduation is claiming a higher employment rate than YALE.
Duke University is the only law school in the United States of America to have reported 100% of its graduates employed at graduation.
Duke, Northwestern University, University of Iowa, University of Utah, and University of Hawaii are the only law schools in the United States to have reported 100% of their graduates employed nine months after graduating (by then in the midst of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depresion)--thus trouncing Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, Cornell, Georgetown, Wash U/St. Louis, and many others.
University of California at Davis reported 97.3% of its graduates employed at graduation, while the University of California at Hastings reported only 69.8% of its graduates employed at graduation.
Arizona State University reported 90.7% of its graduates employed at graduation, while the University of Arizona reported only 77.4%. (ASU also leap-frogged nearly 20 spots in the overall ranking, showing up ahead of U of Arizona. Strangely enough, ASU is part of a university that rewards its leaders for improvements in U.S. News ranking.)
George Mason University reported 95.9% of its graduates employed at graduation, more than Georgetown and George Washington Universities.
Chapman University reported 91.1% of its graduated employed at graduation, more than any school ranked between 47 and 100 in U.S. News (Chapman ranked 93rd).
These are just some of the Ripley-style facts that leap out on casual perusal of the "data" printed by U.S. News.
