    US News and Above the Law
    Rankings matter more for law school than for any other professional education. But the value of rankings lies only in how well their metrics pertain to the applicant’s needs. Therefore, Cambridge Coaching likes to use two sets of rankings: US News and Above the Law. Above the Law is slightly different from US News’s rankings because it focuses not on GPA and LSAT scores, but on employment outcomes. ATL’s are the only rankings to incorporate the latest ABA employment data concerning incoming JD classes.
