D&T: sorry for not responding earlier: I tried, but the movers decided to unplug my internet connection and I had to run to a meeting.

NYU was ranked 4, CLS 5 in 1999 and 2000.

Well, it's been a while then. :-)

Anyone know what USC's trajectory has been in the rankings over the past decade or so?  Haven't they climbed up from the 20's?

People still care about these things?

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

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.

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.

Exactly. Hastings used to be a top 20, then screwed up on reporting their rankings, resulting in a drop to 45. Ever since, they've been stuck in the doldrums because their incoming class statistics have gone down proportionately.. But maybe they're back on their way up now.

I understand the hyper-competitiveness and the narcissism, but Hastings is a great example of how (largely) unimportant the rankings really are. Beyond the top 15 or so, regional reputation and placement are the only rankings that really matter.

My two cents.





Hello........ :) Wow, I always wondered what your screen name was over here...........

So I just walked into a Houston "Hastings" or something like that, and they had the USNWR for 2008 already on the rack. All things posted earlier on this thread have been confirmed. And I am still pissed about USD dropping to 85.
