when do the new school rankings come out for 2014

Postby itachiuchiha » Mon Jan 20, 2014 12:16 pm

when do the rankings come out and will the new rankings influence your decision on where to go?

Just wondering

For 'US News' I think it's usually mid-March. Subtle changes to rankings probably wont matter to me any, but changes to employment numbers might.

Barring something crazy (Columbia drops out of the T14, Cornell jumps to #1, etc.), it won't make any difference to me at all.

Other than being interested to see what happens with Georgetown and maybe where NYU is going to place it won't matter to me. Interested to see ATL's rankings and what the employment scores are.

LOL. So if USNWR ranked Cornell #1 and CLS #20, it would make a difference to you?

Well, assuming they keep the same rankings formula (as flawed as it may be). I don't pay any attention to subtle changes, but for those equivalent to the ones I mentioned, I would definitely take a second look at my options.

The rankings are flawed, but they aren't meaningless.

I always got a kick out of how they placed themselves at #2, wouldn't want to be pretentious or anything.

#9 does seem high, given their employment numbers. It wouldn't shock me to see them drop all the way to #12.

They started by ranking themselves 2nd, then spent months trying to figure out how to justify it

"By ranking according to first-year class size, first-year minority enrollment, and first-year minority enrollment percentage, schools are ranked on their ability to provide access to law school, particularly for minorities."

That's from their website. Seems legit. :/

Their methodology is pretty entertaining. "Percentage of graduates employed" is weighted the same as "number of professional librarians". Other highlights include library seating capacity and total square footage of law school facilities. Unbelievable...

A little bold to put nyu before Cc, I personally think it'll go the other direction. Penn and nyu tied at 6.
