I like this. Next step: devise a ranking criteria that ranks Cooley in the top 20.

Easy:
Female Variance (student)   70.00%
Grants   10.00%
1/2-Full Tuition   10.00%
Bar Passage Versus State   10.00%

Cooley pulls in a smooth 3rd place.

Add to that a negative 4% for attrition and Cooley is the number 1 law school in the nation.  I figure the more students a school can cull from it ranks the better it must be.
