Dang, it doesn't function here at work. Firewall issue, I assume.

It basically lets you adjust the weights of rankings criteria and then reevaluates the traditional rankings.  It's interesting to see which schools move drastically up the rankings based upon what you most heavily weigh your 2 or 3 most important factors. 

Oh, and it's a pop up, so if that's blocked, maybe that's why it isn't working.

No, I think it uses something other than the typical http port.

Interesting -- for me, everything stayed basically the same, but NYU shot up to #3.  Were other people's results very different?

Finally got this to work. It's rather addictive to play with all the factors, just to see how it all sorts out. Seems like my "gut" feeling on which schools I like best matches my personalized rankings almost identically.

Too bad my #1 is a reach...

Eh, I don't have a chance in hell at the T-14 according to my criteria either.

In someone's personal rankings, perhaps. But then again, moving up two spots within the top five is HUGE. What do you think NYU would give to be ranked at #3 in the USNWR rankings?
