When schools are tied, US News lists them alphabetically.  UCLA and Georgetown are tied, yet UCLA is listed first.  In other words, this is not legit.

Wow, we have James bond here folks. At first I thought they were organized alphabetically leaving "university" out, but if you look at the USNWR site at the schools tied for the 80 spot, you'll see that "university" isn't left out.

Wow, I really have no life...

Could you post the 2nd tier?  It would be greatly appreciated!

I'm a long time reader but I have never posted on this board before today. But when I saw this, I had to do my civic duty to the board. Excuse the quality of the scan--I had to use the office's old copier to scan it.

If this in fact not legit, which it no doubt isn't, it really is saddening how lame this person has to be to go through all the trouble just to try and get a rise out of people on an anon board.

The fact that ties aren't in alphabetical order doesn't necessarily mean this isn't legit.  If you look at the US News undergraduate rankings, Dartmouth and Columbia are tied for 9th, but Dartmouth is listed first...

At least the ordering is consistent - all the ties are done in alphabetical order if negating the "university."

Nice jump to get Brooklyn Law into the Tier 1. If I'm not mistaken, weren't they someplace around 58 last year? To be ranked 46 in this year's listing is a pretty decent improvement...
If this was real, that is...

Penn at sixth above Chicago? Give me a break!

If this is legit -- which it no doubt isn't -- it'll be down by the end of the day. This happened last year, but the poster at least had a copy with actual scanned dates in the footer.

Total FLAME- take a closer look and the GPA 25/75's are OFF for multiple schools. Nice try, though. Only 50 more of these should come out by the 30th
