US News Recruiter Rankings

Postby Bumi » Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:34 pm

I believe these came out today, and searched TLS to see if they'd been posted yet. Didn't find it, so here it is.

Surprised that Chicago is relatively low for its rank/reputation.

Remember this is firm recruiting. Firms probably hate Yale because they are competing with law schools for some of the best applicants. Stanford probably gets a dent in its reputation because of the regional bias of the students.

Did the author let one of the new school ranks slip when 8th place for Northwestern was not noted as being better than their USNews ranking even though Michigan & Cornell (tied at 8th with Northwestern, Chicago & Berkeley) were tagged as being lower ranked than 8th place ?

Actually, Yale, Chicago, Penn, Berkeley all underperformed their ranking, and they all have relatively small class sizes. All this survey did was regurgitate USNews rankings with a tilt toward large class sizes.

The way I see it Harvard probably IS the most desired in large part due to its larger alumni base, but at the same time, there are many more Harvard students trying to fill those desired spots.

Edit: What expectless said.

Doubt it. Virginia is 6, and duke 8. Both also not mentioned.

If that was the case, why did W&L out-perform its ranking?

Obvious bias against a few STTTate schools, see e.g. UPenn State, UCLA, Texas. Curious Michigan trolling though

I think the trend would get hazier once you go past the T14 and schools start to clump together.

But virtually every small school in the top ten underperformed, which seems like a trend.

My favorite quote was "Harvard or Yale? Which is better? It's a perennial question for prospective students picking a law school to attend."

Perennial question for 1% of prospective students picking a law school to attend.

I don't see how Stanford took a hit here. They've never been number 1 on any rankings out there. This pretty much affirms that they'll always be second, at least in legal circles, to either Yale or/and Harvard

@dabbadon8: I think that you may have missed the word "not" in my post noting the comment as Virginia & Duke are ranked higher in the recruiting survey.
