The real big winner?  USNWR!  They have more power then ADCOMMS and we've given it to them.

Other Winners:
BU (I think its the first time theyve been top20)
Brooklyn (went from being 14 spots behind cardozo to tied, and that is their major competition in NYC)

Has anyone investigated the US News methodology?  I'd like to know what a school is doing to either jump or fall in the rankings.

I don't think anyone's said anything about both Santa Clara and San Francisco falling into T3. I know a lot of people were really up on Santa Clara, and i applied to both myself. I would still attend either though.
I'm an NYC boy, 153/3.3

ATTENDING: Santa Clara w/$$$
Accepted: Marquette($), Villanova, Howard, Univ. San Francisco($) 
Out: Boston College, Temple, Michigan State Univ.

A 1l at Emory posted elsewhere on this board that the USNEWS employment data for the school was in error and screwed up the ranking...and that the school was working with USNEWS towards a possible retraction/revision...

Just an FYI, I read somewhere that Santa Clara's fall into T3 was due to them not reporting employment rates or something.  I can't remember where I read that.  I'll see if I can find it back.

I think the big loser is the U of Penn.  There reporting of 100% employment at graduation finally
showed how much they pad there numbers.
You can't make everyone happy...
but you can sure piss everyone off.
