top 40 here we come
A new survey, by the Princeton Review, puts my home law school (Rutgers-Camden) in the top 40 nationwide. The survey is admittedly less than scientific--I think it placed Cardozo over Yale--and it requires an amalgamation of individual categories to reach an overall score. On the other hand, unlike the prevailing US News Survey, it appears to have emphasized results rather than money spent chasing them. For example, the survey asked reasonable questions like "how often do you see your professors" and "what do you learn from them;" when students at ranking law schools predictably answered "never" and "not much," the rankings fell accordingly. As readers know, I don't think much of the whole survey business: but it's nice to have at least one on your side.
