Texas Tech Schools of Law and Business Listed in Princeton Review
October 9, 2008
Texas Tech University’s 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,
and the schools from which they received student surveys were also given Academic
Experience, Professors Interesting, Professors Accessible, and Career ratings. Only
the top ten 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 2007-08, 2006-07 and 2005-06 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
, 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.
