So as far as the origional question, is it basically all 4 of the 22's are strictly regional when it comes to name recognition? I'm considering applying to all 4 (I can't get into the ones that y'all have been discussing), so I'd like to have an idea of how those rank unofficially.
I was looking at the U.S. News webpage and I saw that there are 4 schools ranked 22nd: Notre Dame, Iowa, Washington and Lee, and Boston University. Do all 4 of these schools carry the same weight as far as name recognition? I know that Notre Dame carries a lot, but what about the rest of them?
