St. Thomas loses law school rankings

"After St. Thomas announced that it had reported an incorrect percentage of its 2010 graduates who had jobs at graduation, the magazine stripped the school of its No. 119 spot on its "Best Law Schools" list, banishing it to the category of "unranked.""

Even though they supposedly lived up to there mistake, makes you wonder how many other law schools out there just put out false data to US News.

In an open letter to the magazine, Dean Thomas Mengler slammed the decision to unrank the school, saying that it will "create a disincentive for law schools to promptly report mistaken or erroneous data."


LOL.

The nerve....

Whats more interesting is 32% are employed AT GRADUATION. People willing to pay $40k/yr for this ? Thats absurd. Your better of saving that money and investing.

119th and Unranked are fundamentally the same thing.

This is by far my favorite part. Devil be damned, St. Thomas won't stand for this.

UST throws a lot of cash around. I doubt many students are paying near that number.
