U.S. News Says it May Start Numbering Schools in its Third Tier

It is everyone's favorite subject to hate -- but why do U.S. law schools give so much power to A MAGAZINE???  As much as people complain about law school rankings, the only remedy for them is . . . more rankings.  Have other magazines (Time, Newsweek, etc.) come up with law school ranking systems and that will dilute the power of U.S. News and World Report.

But in the meantime, U.S. News announced that it is thinking of changing its "third tier" schools to a format that would number each of the schools in that list.  Click here to read more about that.

I totally agree! I'd also like to see different categories (such as diversity) incorporated into the rankings.
