U.S. News Law School Rankings

Should U.S. News law school rankings include the LSAT scores of part-time students? Some law schools force students with weak LSAT scores into part-time programs so that they will not have to report those LSAT scores to U.S. News and World Report. I think the rankings should include the scores of part-time students as well as the LSAT scores of transfer students.

And how should bar passage rates be reported for various jurisdictions? Should it be based only on the scores of those who graduate from law schools that are accredited (or, perhaps, also provisionally accredited), because the magazine is ranking only accredited law schools?

If you have thoughts on either question, you have an opportunity to comment by clicking here.

Why shouldn't they be included? Surely the universities are just trying to put their results in a good light in order to get higher in the rankings?
