People still care about these things?

Why does a few positions bump or drop really matter? Seriously. Explain, please.

Because the spirit of American competition instills in most of us the desire to be better than everyone else, and US News provides a method, however questionable, by which to compare.

Do you really have to ask?  You're talking to most competitive bunch of people on this planet.

i don't really does from a year-to-year basis. I do find it interesting from a game standpoint. at least my preferences aren't changed a bit. I'd still take Michigan over Penn, Chicago or the two NY schools (if, theoretically i could get into ANY of those). I'd still take Texas over USC.

Just looking at Duke and UVA side by side, it's tough to see how they're equal. Well, I guess Duke's GPA >> UVA, but still.

Wow, my condolences to ND, W&M and UNC. #27 to #36 (UNC) is a big drop.

You have to wonder though, because a huge drop can certainly affect the amount of applications a school receives in the next cycle. A drop from Top 30 to Top 40 can definitely change whether people consider applying there.

Is it just me, or does this year's "rankings" have more significant change than any other year?
