Chicago and Penn's numbers are nowhere near Yale's, are they?

No of course not, I only said that to illustrate other small schools, who lose in the rankings to large schools, even though the rankings may be biased.  Also, the rankings are self-repeating.  The highest scoring students look at them and tend to go to the highest ranked schools, which makes those schools highly ranked...its vicious cycle  ;)

I see Pepperdine on the T2 list - but don't know if they moved up or down or by how much.  Does anyone know?

Thanks  :-*
Pepperdine it is.  I'm a sucker for an ocean view.

Unless I see a scan of the cover of this supposed USNWR Im calling bulldokey on it. I only hope a bunch of crazy people withdraw from good schools that they think have dropped in the rankings so that there are more spots left open for me

No, it's definitely for real. I have a .pdf of 11 pages of the rankings, including articles. Clearly not BS. I can share it somehow if you want

Have you seen the scan that includes the specialty rankings and bus. schools. If this is a hoax, whoever made it is genious. Also, there have been different scans of it, as well as independent corroboration. It would have to be a JFK-style conspiracy.

There is a link to the pdf somewhere in this thread

EDIT: I think its page 2 or 3
