I looked up the methodology for those specialty lists and this is what I found:
"These specialty rankings are based solely on votes by legal educators, who nominated up to 15 schools in each field. Legal educators chosen were a selection of those listed in the Association of American Law Schools Directory of Law Teachers 2007-2008 as currently teaching in that field."
My question is, when looking for a job in this field, will I be better off with a degree at the number 1-ranked environmental law school? Or should I retake the LSAT with T14 in mind? Will anyone even care that Vermont is ranked number 1 on the environmental list?

No, not even a little. Retake. With your GPA, even a 166 would give you a shot at Boalt, which will give you a much better shot at doing environmental law in a meaningful way than Vermont.leche wrote: Will anyone even care that Vermont is ranked number 1 on the environmental list?

Going to Vermont over a T14 because of specialty rankings is a terrible idea, but choosing NYU over Columbia / Chicago for tax law is sensible.
