Rutgers makes unusual leap up law school ranking after merger

Valparaiso University School of Law remained in the "Ranking Not Published" category.

The School of Informatics and Computing at IU Bloomington is ranked ninth in U.S. News' listing of top library and information studies graduate programs.

This year, U.S. News also ranked several of CSU's engineering specializations in the top 100 across the nation, including: chemical (63), civil (40), environmental (36), electrical (65), computer (64), mechanical (69) and biomedical (68).

The overall ranking reflects the College of Law's strong employment and student selectivity numbers. Science PhD programs, which fall under UCSF's Graduate Division, also were not ranked this year.

The other law schools in the top 10 are: Stanford University (2nd in the nation); Harvard University (3rd); University of Chicago (4th); Columbia University (5th); New York University (6th); University of Pennsylvania (7th); University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and University of Virginia (tied for 8th); and Duke University (10th).

"Our faculty are accomplished scholars and passionate teachers whose dedication to their students extends beyond the classroom", she said.

The University of Washington medical school retained its number-one status for teaching primary care, family medicine and rural medicine under U.S. News & World Report's rankings.


"I am thrilled to see that our continued commitment to multiculturalism and social justice combined with our commitment to strengthen, develop, and grow our academic programs in SOLES has been reflected in our ranking", said Nicholas Ladany, dean of SOLES. The peer assessment surveys for the specialty area rankings were conducted in fall 2016.

In addition to the main program rankings, U-M was rated on 54 specialties. The UW had the highest-ranking part-time MBA program in the state for working professionals, coming in at 18th; Seattle U's program was ranked 75th, and Gonzaga's program was ranked 89th.

U.S. News newly ranked the Social Sciences and the Humanities, which were last surveyed in 2013.

The annual report was released Tuesday morning.

Baylor University is a private Christian University and a nationally ranked research institution. "IU students and our alumni regularly tell they us they are extremely pleased by the quality of the education we provide, which underscores that IU is one of America's great teaching and research universities".

This year's full-time MBA students are the first cohort in W. P. Carey's Forward Focus MBA - an initiative to draw highly qualified students who might not otherwise seek an advanced degree, such as entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders.
