When I see lists like this I always wonder where the money comes from the compile and analyze the data. When Yale and Campbell are placed close together it should just send of red flags and alarms to anyone who reads.

However, there must be some grads/students who look at this and say the themselves "see my school is great". Magazines should have to put a surgeons general style warning on the fluff pieces " law schools cause excessive debt, Heartache, alcoholism, and May Complicate any future you may have.

Ha, ha, ha! That magazine is pure propaganda! My favorite ad: “ELON LAW: The preeminent school for engaged and experiential learning in law.” Pure puffery gold! And, the magazine itself, which ranks the Best Schools for Practical Training, doesn’t even have Elon in the top 26. So, how can Elon claim to be the “preeminent school for engaged and experiential learning....?”

250k in loan debt, that I have no foreseeable way of paying off, seems like a valid reason to take 5 mins to post a snarky comment about my crap school.

I'm ashamed to see that my law school can't get well ranked even in these fake rankings.

OMG, where oh where is unemployednortheastern? He'll be so happy to learn that his alma mommy ranked #1 A+ on this list.



Then there's this:

"The complete list is available via the preLaw magazine website *at this clickable link* as well as its Spring 2018 issue on newsstands now."

* Are Campbell's prospects viewed as being so dumb that it is assumed they will not be able to recognize that the differently colored text is a hyperlink?


Other big "winners" on the list include Dean (fmr) C of UC-Irvine, who finally finds Irvine on SOMEONE's top 20 list.

And Valpo at #11! Congrats Valpo! Too bad PreLaw Mag didn't get the memo about that little goin-outta-business thing you got going on there.

"Top 38" isn't even that great a showing. Also the rankings are apparently determined by looking at ratios concerning externships, clinics. etc.., which is silly.

This publication deserves every sarcastic remark it receives - and then some. I can't believe they even rank schools based upon how nice their buildings are. It must be comforting to know that you have a luxury seat on your trip to utter financial and professional ruin.

A fun way to check "rankings" is to go to the website of every bigshot firm you've ever heard a law professor brag about "interviewing with", go to the "search professionals" page, and see how many alumni from "law school x" work there.
