Were the US news rankings to go under, we would clearly adopt the old bastion of legal scholarship, the EMMM Rankings. The EMMM rankings (Which, of course, stands for Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe, the creators of the system), have long been shown to be as accurate as any other ranking system and, in some ways, perhaps even moreso. By doing away with the entire LSAT/GPA/Hair color system used by publishers like US News, they individually tailor each of their rankings to each individual student, completely taking out any factors of background, achievement or geographical location. Imagine - a wholly unbiased ranking system! It truly is blind to the attempts of alumni to bolster their own school's ranking as well - another major problem with US News. All in all, it is rather shocking to me that the EMMM system has not been adopted elsewhere - clearly, it has major positive points that should be considered.
