According to an article by NPR, U.S. News and World Report has released rankings of the top colleges, universities and graduate schools in the nation for the past 40 years, but recently, many of the nation’s consistently high-ranked institutions have stopped providing their data to this publication.
According to the NPR article, Yale University Law School was the top law school in the country on this ranking system for years, but Dean Heather Gerken of the school chose to stop providing U.S. News with the law school’s data in November 2022. Following its resignation from this publication, 40 more law schools soon did the same.
