Why do law schools have to watch the U.S. News rankings?

Because of brainless "reporting" (i.e., regurgitating) of the results like this.  Movements are reported without any explanation of what they mean, or how they were brought about, or whether they mean anything at all beyond enhanced manipulation of self-reported data.  Journalists more than anyone are responsible for the persistence of the U.S. News fraud on the public.
