2016 USN Law School Rankings Released Tomorrow 3/10
« on: March 09, 2015, 04:46:14 PM »
Big day for law schools and law students tomorrow, as the US News' annual list of law school rankings is coming out! Probably no huge shake ups or surprises, although if this top-ten preview (http://abovethelaw.com/2015/03/a-sneak-peek-at-the-2016-u-s-news-law-school-rankings/) is to be believed it seems Michigan has been bumped from its 10th-place tie spot of 2015 (tied with Duke).

Should be interesting to see the final list tomorrow!

Look at all the ties: two schools tied at 2, three tied at 8, two at 20, and four at 22. And that's just in the top 25.

How good can these rankings be when so many ties are being generated?
