My pre-law adviser has told me that high rankings in specialized areas don't really make a difference, and I should try to go to a school that's ranked high overall, and not just in the area of law I want to practice. I'm interested in international law (specifically in the role of the IGO in legislating/enforcing human rights), and I've read that American University is ranked #47 overall, but #5 in international law, tied with Yale.
Does anyone have any ideas about the discrepancies between general and specialized rankings? Advice would be appreciated.
Well I was an Art History major so I am TOTALLY prepared.
This reminds me of a classic Dilbert strip:
(Dilbert sitting at a table with 2 marketing people)
Marketing person 1: We didn't invite engineers to the product planning session because, um...
Marketing person 2: Because we were art history majors in college!!
Marketing person 1: PARTY!!! WHOO-HOO!!!
Marketing person 2: So, how soon can you build the cloak of invisibility?
Marketing person 1: Let the man think, Clover!
