US News ranks law school 'yield rates'

March 22, 2013 As law school applications decline and schools struggle to stock their programs with bright students, many schools are working hard to protect their ‘yield rate’ which is the proportion of admitted students who actually choose to enroll in a particular school.

For example, Above the Law has reported that UVA makes it ‘standard practice’ to withdraw applications after students inform them that they will attend another school.

U.S. News reports on yield rate, and recently released a list of the schools with the highest yield rates in 2012, calling them as the “most popular law schools.”
The 10 schools with the highest yield rates in 2012, according to the U.S. News & World Report:
1. Yale University,
2. Brigham Young University,
3. Harvard University
4. University of Nevada
5. University of New Mexico
6. North Carolina Central University
7. Southern University Law Center
8. Stanford University
9. Liberty University
10. University of Hawaii
