The only thing more worthless than the actual US News law rankings are the specialty rankings. Who honestly puts any stock in these?

Certainly shouldn't be an afforded significant weight when choosing where to attend, but I wouldn't say worthless.  USNWR surveys all legal writing directors who are AALS members.
