Law school rankings - looking for input for article
« on: September 07, 2005, 02:50:46 PM »
I am a writer with and I am looking for input from students who are trying to decide what law schools to attend.  Specifically, I would like to know the following:

1.  Do the ranking lists published every year effect your decision?  If so, how much do they effect your decision?

2.  Which of the ranking lists do you use? (US News & World Report, Law School 100, etc.)

3.  What other published sources of information do you use to pick a law school? ( Official Guide to Law Schools from the LSAT people, BCG Class Ranking Guide, Princeton Review's Complete Book of Law Schools, ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools, etc.)

4.  What factors influence your decision when choosing a school?

5.  How important do you think your choice of law school is in consideration for your future employment?

6.  What is more important for your future career - the school that you graduate from or the grades that you get in law school?

Please email me your answers at (preferred) or post them here.  Thank you for your assistance and good luck to all of you in finding the right school.
