Our ratings do not reflect the quality of education here

Yes, it’s that time of year—the time for grousing and bragging about the new U.S. News law school ranking. Those who’ve dropped are kvetching, or playing it down, while those whose stock is on the rise are sounding reasonably pleased, or very pleased indeed.
