Postby tallboone » Mon May 17, 2010 1:05 am

Has anyone seen this? I really enjoyed the in-depth analysis of the different grading systems at various schools and how they relate to placement.

Here's the most important sentence in that paper:
Although every study will inevitably suffer from some error, Leiter’s highly significant errors all could have all been avoided by using proper research methods.

Which is a closet at UChi that lacks internet access, so he won't be able to blog while he cries about how his useless, also-ran rankings are so much better than USNWR.

Please, please, please UChicago guys. Please don't become a shill for Brian Leiter. You have plenty of outstanding academics on which to hang your school's pride. Leiter isn't one of them and never will be, no matter how much he likes to think otherwise.
