A National Jurist story examines the omission, misrepresentation and manipulation of some law schools’ law grad work statistics.  The story says:

“U.S. News changes rankings to avoid manipulation over employment data.  But critics argue that the data is ‘junk’ to begin with and change is needed.  ‘It’s clear that more law schools have decided whether to report their graduation employment based on how their actual percentage will compare to the estimate U.S. News will make for them,’ wrote Robert Morse [Director of Data Research at U.S. News]  . . .  . Morse said that 74 law schools did not report their at-graduation employment, up from 38 … in 2005.”
