Yet another ranking system (Top 50)

More of the same as US News, but this report has comprehensive information on employment statistics, courses offered and law journals.

BCG is pretty great - but they are notoriously outdated and inaccurate.

I don't know much about them, but the information they use appears to be recent, updated data (2005-2008).  It's also just a compilation of information from other sources, like US News or whatever, so I'm not sure I see how it can be "outdated" or "inaccurate."

This is not a new or different ranking, it just uses the 2008 top 50 US News ranking.

You're right.  It's basically US News 2008, as opposed to the current US News 2009.  I got the years confused.
