Yale law school

Summary: This list that examines the percentage of accepted law students that enroll in a particular law school shows that being a top law school is not everything for a law school looking to reach their quota.

Just because a student receives an acceptance letter from one J.D. program does not mean they will decide to enroll at that school. There are some law schools that have more of their accepted students enroll than others and the U.S. News Short List puts those numbers into rankings.

Of course this list does not tell everything. Looking at the number of students that the program accepts is a factor. Harvard Law accepted 931 students, more than any other law school on the list. The overall average of the 195 ranked schools was 24.3 percent.
