FloridaLaw, since I know that you are very concerned about the USN&WR rankings I discovered something that I think might make you feel better...
I do care about the ranking, since it does indicate the reputation of schools to a certain degree; however, I am not very concerned about the ranking.
With that being said, I have said this before, I personally won't attend half of the Tier 3 schools (UA-Fay, Stetson and many others excluded) and most of the Tier 4 schools due to reputation, employment stats, etc. I have nothing against Tier 3 or Tier 4 schools. For exemple, I would have no problem going to Mississippi College (Tier 4, but I didn't apply there) if I didn't get my acceptance to UA-Fay.
I like to avoid risk if it's possible. If I am spending 3 years, thousands of dollars, and countless hours of work, I want to be as certain as I can to have as little debts as possible and employed after graduation, preferably in a job that I like and a salary that I desire. I am just being realistic about all of this.
p.s. I am excited about UA-Fay and I hope to see you guys there in August.
