Law School rankings according to student reviews

Postby iJD2016 » Tue Apr 01, 2014 9:37 am

I know a lot has been said about law school rankings but it's nice to get law students perspective. Thought these rankings might bring some added value as long as you don't take them too seriously :D

I've met a handful of Baylor grads who are very excited about the school's ability to equip them to be "trial ready" or "able to open your own practice on day one." From what I can tell they probably do a great job of that. But if those are your goals going to a private school that's going to charge SMU prices for a Baylor outcome, eeesh.

Colorado had 10 respondents to the survey on which these rankings are based. Generally tiny sample sizes from the other ones I looked at. These rankings are stoopid.

Funny story. At Vanderbilt's ASP last month, one of the dean's three reasons to go there was that ATL's student survey said Vandy had the best social life. It really made me want to not go there.

Yeah... and the University of Florida only had 2. :lol:


"School rankings for specific graduate programs (business, law, engineering etc.) are determined by comparing the sum of the average scores in each of the 15 subcategories. Graduate programs are not ranked until the number of student surveys completed reaches a minimum threshold."

Ha is the minimum threshold one? Maybe the respondents is referring to people that typed stuff, or something. Otherwise wow..
