What’s Wrong with the US News Rankings? - Concurring Opinions

The rankings game has transformed the way applicants and perhaps employers look at law schools.  Corey Yung of University of Kansas Law School is beginning a series of posts. He is asking how US News & World Report rankings may have influenced the way law schools got to their current difficulties: declining enrollments, financial pressures.  He starts off by listing the factors in the order the weight given.  The first is a guarantor of stability, I would guess.  We'll see what he does with it. - GWC
