My guess is because they only have 400 students.

Oh, I thought you were saying they were #84.  So you're saying if you took out rep rating, they'd be a T2.  Well, perhaps they will be on the rise soon?

Or is rep rating one of the more important ratings?  I don't know too much about the methodology.

Rep rating accounts for the largest percentage of the USNWR score - 40%. Selectivity is 25%, Placement success is 20%, and Faculty/resources is 15%.

They only have like 3000 alumni compared to most schools that have 10000...I can see why their rep is low.

Don't know if it's been said (I'm too lazy to real all ten of the previous pages), but based upon the rerankings I made I would have to say that Wisconsin is definitely underrated.
