As Dan noted, Wayne State has hired a consultant to survey law professors and lawyers (among others) about the characteristics they consider in evaluating a law school. The readership here is primarily academic, and I thought it might be interesting to pose this question to you folks. I've tweaked the choices the Wayne State consultants were using, so this isn't quite the same list of factors, though it's got a lot of overlap. Some of the factors struck me as wholly irrelevant, and there's no good way to record that, other than to rank them very low--don't choose "no opnion," but do give what you think are irrelevant factors a low rank. Here's the poll.
