2012 USNWR Rankings

Postby LawIdiot86 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:24 am

New rankings out at http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings.

Touro Law Median Private Starting Salary: 60k
NYLS Median Private Starting Salary: 85K
Liberty Median Private Starting Salary: 45K (53K for public sector starting) (24.6% of students had a job at graduation!)
Ave Maria Median Private Starting Salary: 58K (25% had a job at graduation!)
Rutgers (Newark) Median Private Starting Salary: 120K (62%)

Villanova continued its slide from 67 to 84 to 101.

Good to see schools like Vandy have figured out how to game the reporting to give a median private starting salary of 137K when only 22% (http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNLJ.jsp?interactive=true&id=1202543436520) of their class goes to the NLJ250. Ditto to Texas claiming 160K median with 21% at the NLJ250.

GW's a bit surprising, only 56% had jobs at graduation, 18% in NLJ250, yet somehow still a 160K median. WTF is their career center doing with those kind of numbers if Vandy and Texas can massage their graduation employment rate to 85%+? UGA was also nice with a 110K median and not even in the top 50 for NLJ250.

As usual, it appears that most schools have no idea what their students are doing the day after graduation; nice job at willful blindness.

I haven't done a comparative to last year, but how does this look to impact OCI/EIW?
