Why is University of Miami Ranked Higher than Stetson?

Postby SunshineMagic » Mon Apr 23, 2012 2:44 pm

If you look at the 2010 ABA Data http://placementsummary.abaquestionnaire.org/home.aspx

UM has 386/462 of its graduates employed or 83.3%

Stetson has 264/337 of its graduates employed or 78.3%

This seems logical but when you subtract UMs 35 law school funded positions UM employment rate drops to 75.9%, lower than Stetsons a school that does not self hire...

UM places 102 people into firms with more than 2 attorneys out of its 462 graduates or 22.07%

Stetson places 137 people into firms with more than 2 attorneys out of its 337 graduates or 40.6%

Judge score
Academic score
Acceptance rate
.....and so on.

Strangely enough, Miami would be ranked pretty high if they cut their class size in half.

Peer assessment score (0.25): In the fall of 2011, law school deans, deans of academic affairs, chairs of faculty appointments, and the most recently tenured faculty members were asked to rate programs on a scale from marginal (1) to outstanding (5). Those individuals who did not know enough about a school to evaluate it fairly were asked to mark "don't know." A school's score is the average of all the respondents who rated it. Responses of "don't know" counted neither for nor against a school. About 63 percent of those surveyed responded.


so other law school deans and tenured faculty assess other schools? and this counts for 25% of the overall ranking

Yea if Miami class size was smaller it would not be able to pay for the extra chairs in the lounge.
