Mike Spivey's My Rank Top 50 Law Schools

As many of you know, we have spent the past several months developing a tool for prospective law school applicants to create their own customized law school rankings. My Rank is available now and is free for anyone to use (no sign-up required). For fun, I asked Mike to create his own rankings (and then had to explain to him like he was a 12-year-old how to use our wildly easy platform!).

Below are Mike's top 50, and then a brief explanation from Mike on how we got here.

Just an FYI, my category weights likely look a lot different from most applicants'. For example, I know how incredibly flawed both USNWR rankings and reporting mechanisms are, so I devalued those a good deal, but I would understand why an applicant would not – they matter to employers. That is just one of many examples. But I think that is the point – everyone's rankings are individualized for them. I was actually surprised and fascinated by these results. I hope you are too by your own! –Mike
