Go Huskers.  Was that because of the library improvements, you think?

I am not sure- I havn't seen the rankings myself to compare them to last years. The library looks very nice, though I don't think it could have pushed them up 12 spots alone. The some of the class rooms are a bit outdated, but they are in the process of up grading them. It may have helped a bit.

I hope MC goes up to T3 before I graduate.

They just built a new building that effectively doubles their campus, they're in the process of building a third, and they're in the process of remodeling every classroom in the school, as well as the library.

They now have those cool Tiffany study lamps and the buttons that make the shelves whoosh by.

I don't know if my eyes are deceiving me, but I saw Pace drop to tier 4 in the rankings. If this is true, this definitely deserves honorable mention for the #1 stunner. Was Pace really on the bottom of tier 3 all of this time?

Ok but where did they come from?  How do you know they're valid?

Isn't it hard to say who was at the bottom of tier 3? If memory serves me, tiers 3 & 4 are unranked. It is kinda scary though. If they fell to tier 4 from what could have been a cozy position in tier 3, there may be choppy waters ahead. If they were on death's doorstep the whole time then no one would really care.

tiers 3 & 4 are unranked in the magazine. However, US News does compute a score for each school for ranking purposes. They may withhold the overall score in the magazine in order to give all t3 and t4 a fair shake.
