The No. 6-ranked University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School announced Friday that it would no longer participate in the U.S. News & World Report education rankings.

“As has been expressed and discussed elsewhere, the current U.S. News ranking methodology is unnecessarily secretive and contrary to important parts of our mission, including Penn Carey Law’s increasing investment in need-based financial aid and public interest lawyering,” the law school said in a statement. “We have directly and frankly shared these concerns with U.S. News and hope they will consider significant and meaningful changes in how data is calculated and published.”
