Summary: The law school a student decides to enroll at does not rely solely on the overall ranking of the law school. Four of the top ten schools with the highest rate of accepted students enrolling are in the bottom fourth of the overall rankings.
It comes as no surprise that the number one ranked law school by U.S. News & World Report is the same school with the highest yield rate. Yale Law School is frequently listed as the top law school, resulting in a high percentage of students that are offered admission actually enrolling in the school. They are a top pick for many people, whereas a number of other law schools are backup options that students apply to in case they don’t get into their top pick.
Yale produced a 74.3 percent enrollment rate from accepted students in the fall of 2015. The average rate among the 195 law schools that U.S. News ranks only produced a 24.3 percent yield. The rest of the top ten yield law schools may surprise you.
