Should racial and ethnic diversity be added as a factor to the U.S. News rankings?

It sounds like Bob Morse's answer is 'no' , and for fairly sound reasons (though some of the reasons apply as well to some of the existing criteria in the U.S. News 'stew').   One can understand, of course, why those concerned about the racial and ethnic diversity of the legal profession would be pushing such a proposal:   since U.S. News rankings are the tail that wags the law school dog, if 'diversity' were incorporated, law schools would do something (dramatic) about it.
