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

With the 25% response rate, I wouldn't put any stock in those reputation rankings.

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.

These are coming from USN? The response rate -- as well as the geographical bias -- casts them in a very suspicious light. W&L, for example, is not nearly so well thought of in the West.
