I have no life...06 and 07 Ranking Comparison
« on: March 29, 2006, 01:24:09 PM »
For those of you who are thirsty for even more data regarding the USNWR rankings, I created an Excel file that compares lasts year's rankings with this year's.

If you need clarification on anything, or if you notice any errors, well, that's too bad...I mean, let me know.  ;)

Enjoy!

Wow - that was SUPER nice of you!  :-* I think I'll dwell on how nice it was, rather than agonize over Pepperdine dropping 10 points.   >:( that sucks!
Pepperdine it is.  I'm a sucker for an ocean view.

Veg - I think I preemptively tried to make you feel better by accidentally color coding Pepperdine with an orange mark instead of a blue one. Don't worry, USNWR can't take away Pepperdine's incredible location!

Bender - Well, as long as I'm being efficient - I guess that's what an economic major will do for you

LL/Christian - You're most welcome

Well, Kansas and Denver are the fastest growing major schools. While Catholic, Louisville and Mississippi are the fastest decline majors schools of which two are now small schools.

Yeah, the big winners were Seton Hall, Denver, DePaul, IU-Indy, Mercer, and Santa Clara

The big losers were Pepperdine, Hawaii, Mississippi, Catholic, Louisville, and UNLV

Yep - Pepperdine went down 10 points!  I sure hope I'm doing the right thing by considering it over a full scholarship at Whittier..   ???

I wouldn't worry too much about Pepperdine's rank.  I too was a bit unsettled, but do realize that schools at this tier level are VERY volatile.  Santa Clara was consistently 2nd tier for years and for some reason it fell to third tier last year, only to return.

You're much better off at Pepperdine.  Things to take notice of this year:

Average salary went from $55-80k to $61-105k putting in the ranks of Loyola and San Diego and surpassing Southwestern's salary prospects

Bar passage rate went from 70% to 74% making it the highest in the 2nd Tier for CA

More than likely, I will be attending this Fall.

BTW, did you get an email from them telling you that "theres still time to RSVP for April 7th"?  I RSVP'd a few weeks ago, but I'm thinking they maybe missed my Fax and RSVP card.
Loyola it is... and damn happy about it
