The top business and law school selections were based on student surveys from each campus.
The School of Law and Rawls College of Business have garnered positions in the 2009 Princeton Review’s “Best 174 Law Schools” and “Best 296 Business Colleges” respectively. The comprehensive reference books are available at book stores.
The Princeton Review does not rank the schools on a single hierarchical list or name one school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 schools in various categories. Every school that appears in the Best 296 Business Schools and in the Best 174 Law Schools received an Admissions Selectivity rating. The schools from which they received student surveys were also given Academic Experience, Professors Interesting, Professors Accessible, and Career ratings. Only the top 10 schools in each of the 11 ranking categories appear on the ranking lists.
The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys of 18,000 students attending the 174 law schools and 19,000 students attending the 296 business schools listed in the books and on school-reported data. Only schools that permitted The Princeton Review to survey their students were eligible for consideration for these lists.
Conducted during the 2005, 2006 and 2007 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. One list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data. The lists are posted at www.PrincetonReview.com. All narrative profiles and ranking lists in the law school book are available at www.PrincetonReview.com/law/, with similar business college information at www.PrincetonReview.com/mba/.
The books also contain advice on applying to the schools and funding degrees. The books are two of 200 Princeton Review titles published by Random House. The company is not affiliated with Princeton University.
