2012 U.S. News Rankings - AMSL Still At Bottom

This year's U.S. News Rankings are out. Yes, AMSL is still Tier 4.

Tax Prof Blog has a list of the most interesting factor, peer reputation, as this marks a law school's reputation in the law school community. If you recall, AMSL's reputation has steadily dropped over the years, until last year's ignominious results, when AMSL dropped to 1.2 out of 5.0 -- and was the only school in the country to hold that lowest score.

What about this year? No improvement. AMSL remains at 1.2. But fortunately for those who are "positively-Ave-Maria", it doesn't look as bad this year, since there are three other schools at 1.2: Barry dropped from 1.3 to 1.2, while Liberty and Phoenix are two newly-accredited law schools who are debuting in the U.S. News at 1.2.

What about the other stats? Anyone have any observations?
