  1. Why should we not be basing our totally unscientific responses to the USNWR “peer evluation” survey on these SSRN rankings, as opposed to (1) gut instinct, (2) student quality, (3) echo chamber reiteration of last year’s USNWR rank, or (4) some other guide? Especially for schools with which one is unfamiliar, it seems to me that these ranks should for many schools become the default “peer estimation” ranking. Why should this not be the case?
