So will Yale ever lose the #1 spot? It seems like the USNWR rankings are a self-fulfilling thing, so Yale should be #1 for at least as long as all of us are alive. Anyone disagree?
Yale 2010 (or 2011 if I do a joint degree...)

or Harvard decides to cut its class in half. Which isn't going to happen either as there are definite benefits to the larger class.

Harvard should do that one year, just to prove a point, then go back to its normal ways. That would be ballsy.

Not to cause chaos or whatever. But a friend of mine sent me this link: http://i11.tinypic.com/2janes0.jpg

The rankings there look legit and are different from what we have been talking about.

Those rankings actually would seem more reasonable to me than what has been posted in this thread.

I wonder why someone would fabricate the rankings in that pic you posted...Perhaps if they want to mess with people--but the rankings in your link aren't really that drastically different from the previous year's so I can't imagine them causing panic. Why someone would go out of their way to so carefully create fake rankings is past me.

err... they're more reasonable? Penn passes chicago, UCLA ties with Georgetown, Texas ties with GW? I'm not saying none of that will ever happen or anything, but it doesn't seem like it's more "reasoanble" somehow. US News supposedly is just about what numbers they're given in any year anyway. It's a very flawed system, but it's not like they have options for making sure things are "reasonable" or not.
