Thanks for all the replies, TLS-Collective!
As far as my own personal ranking system is concerned, I have been using a combination of LST's employment data (which I think is USNWR data?), NLJ Go-To School's rankings, as well as the NALP directory to see the number of BigLaw (read "big entry salary") firms actually come/visit/interview at the particular school I am looking at. I also take a look at some top firms to see how many attorneys have gained entrance into their ranks from said school (but this is sort of a check for alumni network strength). This is purely based off of employment prospects and for me that is the number 1 priority. I also take into account scholly and financial stuff but when it comes down to it, employment is the most important statistic, for me at least. Any other stuff I should take a look at?
Not that it is easily available, but WHERE in the NLJ250 the grads are placed is also something to consider if that is the sort of thing you care about. Not all vault100 firms are created equal etc. For example, Cornell topped the list last year in NLJ250%, but if you came up with some sort of scoring system that accounted for where in the vault rankings their grads placed, they still would come up behind a school like Columbia.
