Wait List Food Chain

Has anyone seen this?  I found it fascinating, if not necessarily accurate.

ouch!  the diagram makes my head hurt.  it's interesting, i wonder how much truth is in this.  the argument sounds plausible.

I think it looks pretty good. That food chain describes my preferences (mostly).

I dont know if I agree with the suburbs theory...I would include hofstra and pace in the nyc category and would not consider pace and st johns to be equal in standing
Just my 2 cents based on my experiences from the NE region

agreed. pace is a third tier toilet that is well behind NYLS and Hofstra (the two of which are debatably equal in the food chain IMHO). SJU (Queens a suburb? C'mon) is about the same as cardozo and brooklyn in the NYC food chain. Pace is in the same category as CUNY and Touro. as always deloggio is wrong.

I think last year it was safe to say hofstra and NYLS were equal but as of lately I think Hofstra is soaring and NYLS is stagnating, I think next years numbers will prove that even more

I thought that Hosfstra was solidly ahead of NYLS.

yeah, i'd think st. john's would be solidly ahead of nyls too. though sju is definitely below cardozo/bkln. the admissions staffs at cardozo/bkln only acknowledge each other and fordham.

and yes, the easternmost parts of queens are very suburban. bkln and sju are very different environments, just as american and gwu are very different (american is very suburban, though still in dc, while gwu is much more urban).

The ranking discrepancies are due in part because it's old-- dated 1998. I would imagine the remaining discrepancies are due to the fact that the person who created this appears insane.
