Wow... so now US NEWS is going to rank PT law programs?? wow... that is going to make it even harder on incomming students. PT evening programs were great b/c they would allow admissions to select students who they personally thought would be a good fit for the school even if they had lower than normal incoming stats. So they would put them in the pt program, this way they would duck the US NEWS rankings... now since there are PT rankings they can not duck them anymore.
I don't think it will make that much a differnce in how prospective students select schools, b/c most students will go by the original rankings of the school, which i think may carry more weight overall than the PT ranking. Especially if a student decides to move into full time after their first year. In the end, i think all these rankings are getting rediculous!! lol soon they will start ranking the bathroom stalls and water foutains!! lol
