U.S. News Considers Two "Fixes" to Law School Rankings

Bob Morse of the U.S. News & World Report posts that U.S. News is considering two changes to the rankings. One change is aimed at preventing law schools from "gaming" the rankings by admitting students with low LSAT scores into the part-time program. The other would change the way bar passage rate is calculated. The latter change would help mostly California schools. You can comment on the proposed changes.
