The Princeton Review’s latest education guides place the Walter F. George School of Law and the Eugene W. Stetson School of Business among the nation’s leading schools. The New York-based education service company features Mercer in the just-published 2008 edition of its “Best 170 Law Schools” and in the 2008 edition of “Best 290 Business Schools.”
Though the Princeton Review does not rank schools from first to last, it does compile survey data to come up with various Top 10 lists. The Law School and the Business School's Macon and Atlanta MBA programs both received national ranking in those lists.
The Atlanta MBA program was ranked No. 1 in the category of “Greatest Opportunity for Women.” The Princeton Review ranked the programs in this category “(b)ased on the percent of students who are female, the percent of faculty who are female, and student assessment of: resources for female students, how supportive the culture is of female students, whether the business school offers coursework for women entrepreneurs, and whether case study materials for classes proportionately reflect women in business.”
Based on the quality of teaching and the accessibility of its faculty, the Mercer Law School continues to rock, legally speaking. For the fourth consecutive year, the faculty at the Law School has been cited as one of the nation's leaders, ranked ninth nationally, in legal education as determined by student surveys. Students said that Mercer is committed to producing lawyers who demonstrate “compassion for the client,” and this goal is reinforced by professors who are accessible and “seem to really care about the student.”
