Job placement data do not support the US News' rank. Otherwise, yes, the T14's US News ranking is nearly the same as the LSAT ranking.


For a method that uses a bunch of non-employment factors (though are related to employment) and an employment factor that is hopelessly skewed, I think it's pretty impressive how close it is to the real thing.

Medians.
1-2: 173
3: 170
4: 172
5-6:171
7B: 167
7P: - could not find but I think its 170
9: 169
10V: 170
10D: 169
10N:170

There is only a couple of schools that don't follow the trend. Only three points separate students in UVA from students in Yale. So do a few points on the LSAT really matter? You decide.
