this one is based on reported salary and indebtedness data
where do you even begin
reported salary is notorious flame
there's a reason fordham and harvard have the same $160k median reported salary, and it has nothing to do with similar placement power
95% of students at H reported a salary. only 65% at fordham did.
until salary data is more complete/reliable, it has no business being in a "ranking"
average indebtedness data is another stupid measurement for a ranking
few people are going to take out the mean amount. some people will debt-finance sticker, others will get full rides or go to bank of mommy
so weighing a hypothetical average student's indebtedness against reported salary is meaningless for most prospective students
it invites confusion. at least one person with a full-ride to a "C" school will opt for a sticker "B" based on the supposedly superior financial prospects, even though a weighing of that person's individual indebtedness against median salary would show the exact opposite result
that's simply a reality about how people use rankings. higher ranked schools are better. must be worth more of my loan money. few prospective students will carefully study the methodology and recreate the rankings based on their own projected indebtedness.
anyways, without further adieu, here they are:
M7 Financial is pleased to present a first-of-its-kind financial rating of the nation’s top law schools. We based our ratings on the ability of an average student at each school to pay typical program-related student loan obligations upon graduation.
