Prof. Geoffrey Rapp recently noted that this year, for the first time, U.S. News & World Report's website revealed the rankings of law schools in the 3rd and 4th tiers. He and his commentators wondered whether that was deliberate or a fluke. When I discovered today that the website no longer offered that feature, I wrote to Bob Morse for an explanation. He told me that the momentary revelation was "there by accident" and that the 3rd and 4th tier schools "are locked into alpha order again" (quoted with permission).
