I am wondering what will happen with U Illinois, It seems to me they keep improving their program.  This year I have heard they will be taking a 1L class of around 190 instead of 230 like recent years, they have also hired lots of new great faculty and seem to be changing things around alot, I am looking for them to head up in the rankings.

Heck, just the entire 2006 and 2005 rankings would be good enough for me.

google/google cache perhaps?

you can search every posted USNews ranking every put out (since '87 I think) and it has a bunch of other features. I've looked through it once or twice, its pretty decent.

These links are good for seeing trends and seeing that the top 20 don't move very much.

2008 = UIUC > Iowa.

I think that is why a lot of people consider Chicago underrated.

I like how a school can be ranked, like, THREE spots lower than it "should" be and people consider it underrated.  That's like people saying Columbia is underrated for being 4th instead of 1st.

Maybe Columbia is overrated then?  I would put it:

Yale
Harvard
Chicago
Stanford
Columbia




NYU
