I'm just curious how they came up with that...I mean I'm not surprised they put themselves at #2

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. :/


Just one gem from their "methodology." It is stunning. Let's rank by total number of apples, total number of green apples, and then percentage of green apples. Totally three different things. The library shit is just incredible.

One of the biggest sources of debate will be where UCI ends up ranking. I'm personally pretty interested: I didn't end applying there, but my best friend turned down some pretty great schools (BU, Fordham, William and Mary) to go there. I didn't agree with the decision then, and I almost certainly won't agree with it even if UCI is ranked in the top 30 (which he thinks it will).

If the above ranking affects your decision even marginally, you're not thinking straight. It should be a complete non-factor.

Meh, I personally would look to USNWR if COA was relatively close at all 3 (no schollys) and if none of them received a significant bump in my mind from visiting.

I would hope that movement amongst these three in USNWR is indicative of some infinitesimal changes in hiring trends, but that hope is—admittedly—blindly placed.

Would like to see UChi stand at 4, not tied with another university... baby steps. Don't think it has been T3 in the past decade, but that would be nice too...not entirely realistic. Aw, hell, who am I kidding? FTW Chicago!

Haha I read "UCI" as "UChi" and was about to question your sanity :D.

IMO great = T14
Decent = regional powerhouses, secondary schools in strong markets
Crap = everyone else (excluding sole school in its region)

UChi will claim sole possession of the 4th seed and oust Columbia in the playoffs.

A most unlikely collection of suspects - law schools, their deans, U.S. News & World Report and its employees - may have committed felonies by publishing false information as part of U.S. News' ranking of law schools. The possible federal felonies include mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, racketeering, and making false statements. Employees of law schools and U.S. News who committed these crimes can be punished as individuals, and under federal law the schools and U.S. News would likely be criminally liable for their agents' crimes.


You can read more on Prof Paul Caron 's blog: TaxProf

Law deans and Us News are responsible for their publications and numbers. Let s see how this is going to unfold.

lol. just because the chi folks keep repeating it, won't make it truth. if they'd held a 171 median, maybe. But with both schools -1, no metric-determinative factor has shifted between last year and this year AFAIK

"Pretty great". I made sure to add that vital qualifier. Haha.
