If you can only listen to one podcast about law school rankings today, make it this one.  It's chockful of insights! Like this one below, from "Vault's Dalton":

“These sorts of rankings, whatever their source, are best used as a starting point. A student knows what his LSAT scores are. He knows what his GPA is.  And by taking a look at rankings from the – US News on down, you can just start to get a general sense of sort of your range of possibilities. But then from that point, it’s really up to the student to do the real work — to visit the schools, visit their sites, do your own research, cross reference all the various rankings and assessments and make their own decision.”
