Princeton Review Rankings?

Postby ArtVandelay » Mon Apr 19, 2010 2:41 pm

How significant are they? Everyone talks about USNWR, but is PR worth a look?

USNWR are the only rankings that matter.

Unless you go to Cooley

What about the Canadian Wolf rankings. Those seemed legit.

Given a cursory inspection... Pepperdine is ranked ahead of Harvard. What do you think?

Edit: Excuse me. I also missed the fact that Arizona is ranked ahead of Yale. Dear God. Speaking in law school terms, these are lucky to be a sub-tier ahead of the Cooley rankings.

I realize it's not a good indicator of career prospects, but (based on the criteria) it seems to be more of a measure of QOL. Would you say it's accurate by those measures?

And it's not completely off compared to USNews. Aside from a few outliers--Harvard, Columbia, and Yale--the T14 is pretty much intact.

Princeton Review rankings are based largely on the opinions of current law students.
Depending on your purpose for using rankings, PR might be a good source for gauging how content law students are with their current law school.

That's basically what I'm asking--do the ranking accurately measure that?

And why are schools like Yale and Harvard so low and schools like Fordham and GW so high?

TITCR, their rankings don't really speak to the overall quality of the institution necessarily, just a bunch of other "stuff."
