The rankings are not worthless I just think outside out of the elite schools they are.

Okay so you agree that they probably have meaning for say the top 25 schools, but they're kind of silly once you get below the top [whatever].  So we're actually on the same page to a large extent.

I would say that regional rankings would be less harmful than national rankings for people misunderstanding relative values of degrees though.  People might think that going from 128 to 88 is a big jump, but are less likely to think that going from the #4 school in an area to the #3 school in the area is a good investment.  Just my thoughts on that.

No, but only because I'm not in law school anymore.  ;)

Practicing is such a funny way of putting it.  I have a job as a lawyer.  :)

It's unlikely I'd move to Michigan for a year.  I like warm weather.

Don't worry about that, Cooley expands on a near annual basis, we'll be in every state in the union soon enough.(and if you think that I'm jokeing wait awhile)

Excellent.  Tell your school to devote some of that famous library square footage to something that opens out onto the beach.  Then we can talk.
