Tulane Ranks #2 Among U.S. Law Schools In Only Rankings Done By Student Surveys

Posted by Alan Childress
So obviously the methodology is more valid than that of U.S. News & World Reports, which ignores consumer satisfaction and instead surveys the ... competitors' chair of their hiring committee???  What kind of statistical method is that? Who are the ad wizards behind that sort of academic ranking?  Maybe there's a reason you never see the infamous Coke-Pepsi taste test done by asking the head of Pepsi's personnel department what she thinks about drinking a Coke.  (She is against it. She candidly ranks Coke's taste as way lower than that of the radioactive barium milkshake they give you to gulp just before you take abdominal xrays.  Pepsi now ranked as number one soft drink.)

Tulane is the Number Two Party Law School in the country.  Woo hoo. See this site, as tipped by TaxProf.  Which begs the question, how fun must Arizona State be, to outrank us?
