Wow, I also just realized the huge jump for UIUC...it used to be 34 or something, right?

How sad it'd be if we're all obsessing over these "new rankings" and it turns out they were just a screw-up  :P

I've got nothing else to do.

Has it occurred to anyone that the a school's ranking at the time of admission is meaningless in comparison to its ranking in the spring of 2nd year when you interview for summer associateships?  Rankings are probably more relevant upon graduation than they are at admission.

aww, shoot, i left them at home.

but actually this is part of why i think rankings need to be considered within the context of their trends and not the particular year you happen to be applying.

dilemmae

::raises eyebrow::

No one else bit?  If we're speaking Latin here, I believe you'd have dilemmata on your hands.

Well damn, I was hoping it was an actual plural form. Oh well.

I was equally devestated to learn that penii is not the plural of penis (it's penes if you want to be fun).

Apologies for the pedantry.  I have so very few skills that I pounce when I have the opportunity to use them.  Also, it was a valiant effort.  Dilemma is 3rd declension neuter, but if it were 1st declension (feminine), you would have it right.
