Maybe, but I would not focus to much on rankings honestly. I think one of the biggest issues out there for incoming law students is looking at rankings and reading all these books etc written by Harvard Grads etc.
It is similar to a decent high school player getting advise from Lebron James or Shaquille O'Neal on how to get a scholarship. Lebron James and Shaq are freaks of nature that had people begging them to go, and if you have a 178 LSAT and 3.9 from Yale yea you are going to have a different legal career than someone with a 3.2 from Whatever State and 157 LSAT.
To further make the analogy let's presuem there is 6'7 pretty good high school player, he gets a scholarship to a small division 1 school, plays professionally in Europe for a few years then gets a head college coaching job. That is pretty good, but there is no debate that Lebron or Shaq are infinetly more successful than the 6'7 guy that never made the NBA, let alone the NBA hall of fame, but most people would be pretty happy with that outcome.
No lets relate it to law school, the guy with a 3.2 and 157 LSAT gets into University of San Francisco Law School, finishes in the top third of his class, passes the bar and gets a job making $80,000 out of law school and eventually works in small firms the rest of his life, maybe ends up retiring working for a City Attorney's Office. That is not terrible result, but the guy that graduates Valedictorian from Harvard, gets a Federal Clerkship, works in Biglaw, then it appointed to the Federal Bench, had a better career than person 1.
However, not everyone is Lebron James, Shaq, or capable of getting a 179 LSAT, but everyone listens to those people even though their advice to the average guy is terrible.
If you are looking at UMass and other schools of that caliber congrats, getting into any ABA school is a big accomplishment, but you are not at Harvard, Yale, etc. Therefore, don't consider the rankings, which nobody cares about outside of the "Top" schools i.e. Harvard, Yale, etc.
Nobody cares about the difference between UMass and NorthEastern for example. It is highly unlikely a employer will say oh I see NorthEastern is ranked 98th and UMass is ranked 108th, we simply must pick the student from the higher ranked school. Nobody ever cares about the difference between the 98th and 108th best anything.
Therefore, when it comes to selecting a school use common sense and figure out where you want to live, how much money it is going to cost, and how you feel about the school. If all else fails then use the rankings as a tie breaker, but remember U.S. News is a for profit unregulated magazine offering an opinion. If you want to make life altering decisions based on what U.S. News says then you should move to Albuquerque, New Mexico, because U.S. News ranked it the #1 place to live. http://money.usnews.com/money/personal-finance/slideshows/best-places-to-live
. I imagine you are not going to move to New Mexico, because U.S. News ranked it #1.
Therefore, do not make a life altering $100,000 + decision based on a magazine either.
