Vanderbilt, WUSTL and GWU are all ranked in the top 20, yet they are still somehow underrated?

The school I want is the one that gets: "Illiterate, unskilled dolts who all seem to wind up with plum jobs and outrageous salaries for no apparent reason."
Georgetown?

Vault conducted research on the most underrated law schools. According to their results released in 2007, the top 5 most underrated schools are:

1. Emory
2. Fordham
3. Howard
4. Chicago-Kent
5. Oregon

Analysis: Emory, being #22 already is essentially a T14 school, but US News obviously switches our numbers with Georgetown in order to keep us off the top.

If it hasn't been listed already in the 43+ earlier pages of posts, I would nominate Campbell University.  The last few years the school has had a bar passage rate in North Carolina of darn-close to 100%; the statistics I have list it higher than Duke.  It's hard to argue with a statistic like that; that's why you go to law school.
