The recent release of the 2018 U.S. News tax rankings reminded me that it has been about a decade since I first started applying to law schools. (I’m old!)

The most dramatic change in the last 10 years is that law schools started reporting much more accurate employment statistics.

I applied to law school in very last wild west years when would-be law students had to rely on the often fraudulent promises of law school admissions officers and long-gone law student blogs.

And, of course, there was the U.S. News rankings list that continues to hold schools hostage.

I ultimately picked a relatively safe choice: a top regional school that dominates its metro’s legal market. However, many of my friends and fellow bloggers were not so lucky.

Here are some recent (and not-so-recent) articles if you want to go down the law school ranking rabbit-hole.
