I guess people now have their answer about how Illinois' ranking will be affected by the scandal. Dropped 12 spots.

US News doesn't really measure any of that stuff anything in a meaningful way.


This seems to be closer to the truth. Quite the racket they have going.


Eh, they get the tiers alright, but at this point everyone roughly knows those anyway. If anything, they should just put out rankings less frequently than yearly. Maybe every 5 years to capture any dramatic shifts. Like I'm sure we'll have a greater appreciation of the Illinois scandal fallout, if any, in 5 years.

But you're making less money that way.

Cornell should relocate its law school to Manhattan, right next to its medical center on the upper east side. Instant rankings boost.

That employment number is low because the people that go to Yale often go on to do other degrees seemingly more often than the other top schools. People pursuing another degree do not count as employed.

well the only job info that actually matters is irrelevant in the USNWR rankings, so their advantage is lost. Their medians are low too, so they have a major uphill battle regardless of how they do in NLJ 250 placement
