It may be wrong. I kinda got rushed near the end, but I think it is right.

Well, apparently it is pretty representative of where schools actually stand. Why else would they use them?  ::)

Maybe the entire ranking thing is to sell magazines. They got me for an entire year and I HATED that magazine. The editorials were done by like the bastard child of Leo Strauss.
