Law, medical schools among nation's top 10 for Hispanics

Florida State University's colleges of law and medicine are among the 10 best in the nation for Hispanics, according to Hispanic Business.

The College of Law was ranked second among the nation's law schools, while the College of Medicine was ranked eighth among medical schools on the 2014 Best Schools for Hispanics list.

"It comes as no surprise that Hispanic Business again has recognized Florida State University's colleges of law and medicine as among the nation's best for Hispanic students," said Interim Provost Sally McRorie. "The recognitions highlight our dedication to encouraging a diverse community of excellence where all of our students can succeed."

Hispanic Business annually ranks the Top 10 graduate schools in four disciplines: business, law, engineering and medicine. The schools are ranked using criteria such as enrollment, faculty, reputation, retention rate and the use of progressive programs to recruit, support and mentor Hispanic students.

Hispanics made up 8.9 percent of the College of Law's enrollment and received 28 of the 251 law degrees (11.2 percent) awarded to the Class of 2013. Of the college's full-time faculty, 13.3 percent was Hispanic.

This is the 11th year in a row that Hispanic Business has named the College of Law one of the 10 best for Hispanics.
