I was wondering if anyone has any information on two alternative rankings of law schools I've encountered.
The first is the Vault rankings
based on how employers (the only ones, ultimately, whose opinions matter) view different law schools.
1 Stanford Law School
2 University of Michigan Law School
3 New York University School of Law
4 University of Virginia School of Law
5 University of Chicago Law School
6 Harvard Law School
7 Columbia Law School
8 UC Berkeley School of Law
9 Northwestern University School of Law
10 Yale Law School
The other one is the "Superlawyers"
ranking based on the number of outstanding (have to study the methodology more) lawyers produced by U.S. law schools:
1. Harvard Law School
2. The University of Michigan Law School
3. The University of Texas School of Law
4. University of Virginia School of Law
5. Georgetown University Law Center
6. New York University School of Law
7. Columbia Law School8. UniversiTTTy of Florida Levin College of Law
9. University of California Berkeley School of Law - Boalt Hall
10. Yale Law School
Any info on if these ratings, particularly the Vault one, are useful at all?
Maybe it's a good idea to apply to Michigan after all, even though it's in Michigan?
