Princeton Review Recognizes Washburn Law in "Best 169 Law Schools"

Princeton Review Best 169 SealOn October 7, The Princeton Review released the 2015 edition of its guide to law schools, which includes annual ranking lists based solely on student surveys.

"The Best 169 Law Schools" (Princeton Review, 2015 Edition) lists the top 169 law schools in alphabetical order. "Each school in our books offers outstanding academics: no single law or b-school is 'best' overall," said Robert Franek, SVP / Publisher, The Princeton Review. "We publish rankings in several categories along with our detailed profiles of the schools to give applicants the broader information they need to determine which school will be best for them."

According to a release from The Princeton Review, it calculated its lists based on surveys of 19,500 students attending the law schools profiled in the book. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics and report their experiences at them. Some ranking list calculations also factored in school-reported data.

"The books' school profiles report admission, academics, financial aid, campus life, and career/employment information," according to the release. "The profiles also include school ratings (scores from 60 to 99) in five categories based primarily on institutional data. Among them are scores reflecting the school's "Admissions Selectivity" and "Career" statistics (which factors in data on graduates' starting salaries and employment)."
