The Princeton Review's Annual Law and Business School Rankings Based on 37,000 Student Surveys are Now Out

- Top 10 Schools in 11 Categories Reported in "The Best 172 Law Schools" and "The Best 300 Business Schools" 2011 Edition Guidebooks

NEW YORK, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Princeton Review -- known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools -- today released the 2011 editions of its annual law and business school guidebooks, which also feature rankings uniquely based on student surveys.

"The Best 172 Law Schools" and "The Best 300 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, $22.99 each, on sale October 12) each have 11 ranking lists of top 10 schools in various categories.

The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys of 18,000 students attending the 172 law schools and 19,000 students attending the 300 business schools in the books, as well as on school-reported data. The ranking lists posted today at www.PrincetonReview.com where users can also access information on how they were compiled and find detailed profiles on the schools.

Ranking list categories in each book and #1 schools on them include:

"Best Professors"

Law school: Boston University / Business school: University of Virginia

"Best Career Prospects"

Law school: University of Pennsylvania / Business school: Harvard University

"Best Classroom Experience"

Law school: Stanford University / Business school: Cornell University

"Most Competitive Students"

Law school: Baylor University / Business school: Vanderbilt University

"Toughest to Get Into" (the only ranking based solely on school-reported data)

Law school: Yale University / Business school: Stanford University

Other lists in "The Best 172 Law Schools" and #1 schools on them include:

"Most Conservative Students" - George Mason University

"Most Liberal Students" - American University

Other lists in "The Best 300 Business Schools" and #1 schools on them include:

"Best Campus Facilities" - Bentley University

"Greatest Opportunity for Women" - Simmons College

The books also have ranking lists reporting the top 10 schools in such categories as "Best Administered," "Most Family Friendly," and "Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students."

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in these books academically or hierarchically (1 to 172, or 1 to 300). "All of the schools we chose for these books offer outstanding academic programs in their fields: there is no single law or b-school that is 'best' overall" said Robert Franek, Senior VP / Publishing, The Princeton Review. "We tally rankings in multiple categories and compile detailed profiles of the schools to give applicants a broader range of information to decide which of these outstanding schools will be uniquely best for them."

About the student surveys and books

The ranking lists are based on surveys of law and b-school students during the 2009-10, 2008-09, and 2007-08 academic years. On average, about 100 students at each law school and 65 students at each business school were surveyed for the lists in the 2011 editions of the books. The 80-question survey asked students about their school's academics, student body and campus life, themselves, and their career plans. Almost all of the surveys were completed online at The Princeton Review's student survey site: http://survey.review.com.

The books' school profiles have admission, academics, financial aid, campus life, and career information. Introductory chapters provide overviews on the degrees and advice on getting funding for them, taking the LSAT and GMAT, plus strategies for successful applications.
