More on law schools penalized by the "expenditures" measure

A propos our post the other day, Dean Douglas at William & Mary calls to my attention this list of "efficient" law schools from U.S. News; what goes unmentioned by U.S. News is that every single school on this list rank 5 to 20 places lower than schools with comparable reputation scores and student credentials precisely because they are"efficient"!  (The list is overwhelmingly dominated by state schools and large schools, which have economies of scale, for which they are also penalized by the per capita expenditures measure.)
