Not that I disagree, but I'll ask the same question I asked Sooner: whose ratings should we go by?

maybe, but how would they know? It doesn't look like any of their stats dropped. anyone have the old data?

George Washington University (DC)
22 62 3.4 3.8 3.45-3.81 163-166 22.8% 15.2 93.4%  98.3% 87.5%/NY 74%

is the new one.

Yes.  They over-enrolled and knew this was coming.

Although, when I talked to an IU-B rep, she was very candid and acknowledged that IU-B would be falling in the rankings according to their information.  Well, IU-B went up one spot.  Maybe US NEWS changed their methodology or calculations?

Haven't read most of this thread, but NYU and Penn continue to be overrated IMO.

What do you mean?  I just meant they were overrated by USNews.

wouldn't it be an interesting ploy for US News to fake out those of us trying to get some sort of early beat on it and this was all just fake?

Sigur -- how exactly would overenrollment impact rankings -- would it affect yield?

iscored, any chance that this is an incredibly, incredibly elaborate ruse designed to teach us all a lesson: namely that we put far too much stock into one magazine's rankings, and that our decisions should be based on personal criteria?
