Princeton Review Law School Rankings

Check out the TaxProf Blog for a summary of the recent Princeton Review Law School Rankings.

We surveyed more than 15,000 students at 159 law schools and used the information that they reported to us, along with school statistics provided by administrators, to create 11 ranking lists. None of these lists purports to rank the schools in terms of overall quality; but by using the lists in conjunction with the Students Say profiles and the school statistics, you will be able to identify the attributes of a law school that are important to you—and ultimately, generate a list of the schools that can best help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

It's an interesting picture of law schools. Yale, Harvard, and Stanford (HYS) are the hardest schools to get into (shock!), but Baylor, St. Johns (NY) and Yeshiva have the most competitive students? For best quality of life head for St. Thomas U. (feel the island breezes as you study your torts), U. of VA?, and Chapman U.? Hm.

The best quality of life was the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, Minnesota (not to be confused with St. Thomas University School of Law in Florida). There are no island breezes, but rather blizzards, where we study our Torts.

Does that make it even more interesting that we are considered best quality of life?
