Less than four years after it took over a small private school in Fort Worth, Texas A&M University is now one of the top 100 law schools in the country, according to U.S. News and World Report.
The Texas A&M University School of Law, which was formerly associated with Texas Wesleyan University, climbed to 92 in the 2018 graduate school rankings. That's up from 111 last year. The school wasn't even ranked in 2014. 
The distinction of being in the top 100 is somewhat arbitrary, but undoubtedly important to how the school is perceived. Texas now has five schools in the top 100. The University of Texas at Austin is considered the best, with a ranking of 14.
