U.S. News & World Report may change how it calculates its law school rankings -- and some deans aren't happy about it. The magazine is considering pooling part-time students' scores after hearing claims that some schools move students with lower grades and test scores into part-time programs so they can report better data, said the magazine's director of data research. Deans warn that a slot on the list is so important that some schools would drop part-time programs rather than slip in the rankings.
