I'm guessin that Penn St. will be in the 70s or 80s and FP will be in the 90s. Cuse might go into the lower 90s. Akron may go into the T4. I base this on how these schools have treated me. Wyoming and Vermont are pretty much going to be the same because Wyoming has an open-door policy to residents as does Vermont nationally.

except for the last two years 04-05 cycle and 03-04 cycle Boston College has ranked higher than Boston University.  It has been a very recent trend, and since the Dean at BU left, I think BC will move up.

or atleast i hope.




While BC is way prettier, BU I think keeps on top with its way higher job placement nad lower student faculty ratio.  I mean, campus is nice, but really not up there on the list of what makes a ls great (like attractiveness of the study body).

I don't expect BC to pass BU anytime soon, esp. considering BC refuses to do formal concentration, while BU continues to place at the top in field such as IP.

I could see W&M staying put for now, but going up next year after the brand new library is complete.

I'm sure the next dean of BUSL will actually do the fundraising necessary to construct a new building instead of making up $26 million that just didn't exist. BUSL's building sucks. i was there today and saw maintenance was running around with caulk, buckets, and spackle trying to make the place waterproof while everyone is gone for spring break. once construction gets underway i think it will solidify the higher ranking.
