    I don’t see why diversity should count toward a school’s overall ranking. It has nothing to do with quality of education and I suspect the vast majority of students don’t care about it. The ranking methodology should reflect factors that students actually care about, not factors that students supposedly should care about. Including diversity in the US News rankings would make it as worthless as the AmLaw A-List, which depends on factors like diversity and pro bono that have nothing to do with firm quality.

    I think the best way to reform the US News rankings would be to allow visitors to their website to choose their own weighting scheme and get an individualized list. Then they could produce an overall ranking visible to everyone based on the average weights chosen by site visitors.

    The Supreme Court seems to think otherwise.
