Controversial Rankings?

Rankings of top law schools as a whole have been the source of great controversy over the years. Rankings are very often misused, and often times too much importance is placed on them. Supposedly, even quantitative rankings are subjective. It’s a very good decision to choose a law school where you believe you will be a good fit instead of a school which happened to have a good rankings this past year. Understand your career ambitions and make sure you understand how your selected school will affect your odds of success!
