The Consus Group uses the following methodology to compile its law school rankings:

  • Published Rankings: Published Rankings reflect current and historical ratings by numerous sources. An institution’s aggregate published ranking comprises 50% of its overall score.
  • Selectivity: Selectivity measures the quality of law schools’ admitted candidates. Selectivity is based on the percent of applicants admitted (40% of composite selectivity score), LSAT scores (35% of composite), and GPAs (25% of composite). An institution’s composite selectivity comprises 25% of its overall score.
  • Salary: Salary measures historical and current starting salaries of a given school’s graduates. Salary comprises 10% of an institution’s overall score.
  • Placement: Placement measures historical and current success a given school has placing its graduates. Placement comprises 10% of an institution’s overall score.
  • Yield: Yield reflects the percentage of admitted candidates that matriculate to the admitting university. An institution’s yield comprises 5% of its overall score.

While many law school rankings fluctuate wildly from year to year, TCG’s comprehensive methodology produces a stable, accurate picture of America’s best law schools.
