San Antonio – St. Mary’s University’s Greehey School of Business and School of Law have both been recognized as outstanding schools in The Princeton Review’;s most recent listing of the Best Business Schools and Law Schools. The 2011 edition guidebooks, The Best 300 Business Schools and The Best 172 Law Schools, were just released in bookstores today.
The Princeton Review listed both the Greehey School of Business’s M.B.A. program and the School of Law among the nation’s best because of the quality academic programs offered. School-reported data and student surveys were also analyzed to compile the list. The Princeton Review does not rank the schools academically or hierarchically (1 to 172, or 1 to 300). Instead they state, “All of the schools we chose for these books offer outstanding academic programs in their fields: there is no single law or school that is ‘best’ overall.”
The guidebooks contain school profiles on all schools listed including information on admission, academics, financial aid, campus life, and career information. Introductory chapters provide overviews on the degrees and advice on getting funding for them, taking the LSAT and GMAT, plus strategies for successful applications. The information is also available online at www.PrincetonReview.com.
The School of Law was also selected by preLaw magazine as one of the “2010 Best Value Law schools” in the U.S. St. Mary’s University is ranked No. 1 by Washington Monthly’s 2010 “College Rankings – What Can Colleges Do for the Country” for promoting community service, fostering scientific and humanistic research, and making a quality college education accessible and affordable. St. Mary’s is also ranked seventh in the West Region for quality and value in “Great Schools, Great Prices” by U.S. News & World Report and also ranked among Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Colleges” for 2011.
