Law school rankings game

If somebody posted this before, then ignore the post. But this is kind of interesting none the less. You plug the ratio you find things important, and they rank the law schools on that. I've been playing with it for like 20 minutes. You can alter everything you might need.

In a Cooley style twist, the school (Indiana Bloomington) has added another factor that you can make important, which is "Tibetan Food within 600 m", and when you make that important at all in your ratio, IU B becomes number 1, with Pitt number 2. All the other rankings stay the same.

I thought that was pretty good tongue in cheek humor from them.

Still more legit method than Cooley. ;)

Also, I call bull. We have Tibetan food about 100 ft from the campus.

They think they're being cute, but Tibetan food is a lot more common in college towns than they probably think.

And I think you overanalyzed just a bit.
