Here, reproduced for your pleasure, are the rankings of the well-respected ALAMAR foundation for 2007.

You'll notice these differ substantially from the USNews, and also from the Cooley rankings (which aren't real rankings at all, of course).

It's right there man, #34. Top 1/3 of tier 1. I mean, i can't change the rankings, but at least look before you complain! ;)

Hahaha I didn't even look.  I just assumed it wasn't there.  Can you tell the high opinions I have of my future school?.. ;)

I'm shocked at the lack of respect for the Cooley rankings.

The cooley rankings are useful for cooley apologists.
Meanwhile, sarcasm is a tool that is not grasped by all.

Next time I'll use <sarcasm></sarcasm> tags to make it easier.

BC in the top 10?

I'm not complaining, but what are the criteria for these rankings?

"Criteria" are so 20th century.  The co-chairs of the Alamar committe are tapped into the metaphysical, synergistic "total quality" of each institution in question, based on the school's tangible and intangible contributions to the world.  The science behind it would take years to explain.
