Jason Solomon (Georgia) is Gunning for Yale...

...on grounds that their faculty may be outstanding, but the education ain't great.  I don't know how much credence we ought to put in the Princeton Review 'student satisfaction' data, but he's probably right that everyone should score Yale Law School a '3' in the next US News surveys, but for a somewhat different reason:  it would be better for the legal academy if Harvard or Stanford were #1 now and then in the US News roulette wheel.  Among other things, it might lead those self-selecting for careers in legal academia to pick YLS less often.  The disproportionate number of YLS grads entering law teaching is clearly having a deleterious effect on scholarship and the academy.
