Princeton Review Releases 2013’s Best Law Schools and Businesses Schools Rankings

Princeton Review, the higher education prep empire that dictates much of mainstream America’s perception of institutions each year, released its rankings today of the 168 best law schools and 296 leading business schools for the upcoming year. With recruitment season in full swing for next year, financial executives will want to keep their eyes out for future graduates from these top-performing universities.

While it doesn't select one overall top institution in either business or law, Princeton Review evaluates institutions in 11 different categories. Some categories include traditional ranks like Best Professors and Toughest to Get Into, while others take into account more modern considerations, such as Greatest Opportunity for Women, Best Green MBA for business schools and Best Environment for Minority Students for law schools.

Some of the high scorers in business schools include:

Best Administered : University of Florida
Best Career Prospects: Stanford University
Best Classroom Experience: Stanford University

Some of the top law schools are:

Best Career Prospects: Columbia University
Best Classroom Experience: Stanford
Toughest to Get Into: Yale University

The Princeton Review states its rankings were based on 80-question surveys of 18,000 law students and 19,000 business students. The survey asked each participant about the school's academics, student body and campus life, as well as about his or her career plan.
