This is a really complicated explanation of what should be a simple statistical analysis.


There is an argument that bigger is better. Bigger schools have bigger alumni networks, graduates have more networking opportunities, etc. Adjusting for class size is not obviously right and really hurts big schools like Georgetown. Really, it depends on where you want to work. If you want to work on Wall Street, go to Harvard or Yale. If you want to work in DC, Georgetown. If you want to work in Tallahassee, go to University of Florida. If you want to work in Maui, go to University of Hawaii. These one-size-fit-all rankings have limited value. If you are really smart, don't go to law school.
