My favorite factor going into the rankings has to be study hours.  A few samples:

1. Cornell: 5.97 hrs/day
9. Cooley: 5.37 hrs/day
147. UVA: 3.77 hrs/day
151. Harvard
159. NYU
163. Yale
168. USC
169. Texas

What I can't figure out--does more study hours increase or decrease a school's ranking, and why?

Not calculated in the rankings, apparently. From the website:

I present here Princeton Review's Top 50 Law Schools, determined by (1) focusing on those five categories with reported scores in the 60-99 range (thus excluding the study hours category), (2) combining the Professors: Accessible and Professors: Interesting categories into a single category, and (3) adding the scores in the resulting four categories:

Man, I study about as much as the lowest-ranked school on the list.
