I’ve got the scoop of the year! An anonymous source from US News & World Report leaked this memo to me. It is a memo written by the magazine’s “law school ranking executive” describing how the magazine arrived at this year’s official rankings.
See below for a sneak peak at this year’s rankings as well as some amazing secrets about how US News ranks law schools.
UPDATE: I was contacted by Bob Morse at US News & World Report. He reports that although he realizes it was a joke, some people have been emailing US News, thinking that this is really a leaked memo. News flash to the very gullible: The memo is fake. After all, could the real ranking process possibly be as rational as the memo?
