thank you to the others who have agreed with what i'm about to write:
myshkin is The Idiot. looking at this is worth everyone's time.
That's just categorically false. Harvard is a school where you could graduate anywhere in your class and still be able to get an awesome job coming out. Vanderbilt, I agree, is an excellent school, but if you graduate at the bottom of the class there, I'm sorry, but you're not getting near as great of a job as person who graduated at the bottom of the Harvard class.
I think if you were going to really try and split up the schools into "lumps" of comparable quality, like you try to do here, as good a way as any is the way most people seem to do it here:
Now that's a crappy argument for not breaking things down by number. Every school in your excellent category is not equal. I doubt people would say that Harvard and Yale equal Vanderbilt. The numbers, even in USNWR, help give approximations in the tier 1 schools. Furthermore, USNWR at least releases their formula so people can say how it is bunk.
