But why would the PT inclusion be irrelevant to their interests when the USNWR methodology implies that schools likely use the same metrics when evaluating PT numbers as FT numbers? I agree that FT data is better than nothing, but how is it better than the whole picture? (srs question as I think I might be missing your point)
For schools that have both PT and FT programs, the PT programs are usually (always?) easier to get into, and have lower LSAT/GPA medians. If I'm going to be applying for the school's FT program, I don't really care what the numbers are for their typical PT accepted applicant.
