    Add wake and Uva at 25 (theyre left on page 2)

    What happened to Wake Forest? I thought their preview said it was in the top 25 but I don't see it on the list.
  • TXhornTXhorn Posts: 160Registered User Junior Member
    See my post above

    Is it me or there weren't any changes for the LACs at all? Unless it hasn't been updated yet online.

    Wow, that is a excellent surprise it came out 3 hours early.

    Columbia University actually jumped to 4th place. Wow. Congrats to Columbia University.

    Berkeley went down to number 22, from 21 last year.

    I can't believe UPenn actually managed to beat MIT and Caltech this year.

    Plus, as always, Harvard is #1

    Boston College jumped ahead of NYU wow.

    yeah Cornell got shafted.
  • nerdycrisnerdycris Posts: 113Registered User Junior Member
    I don't know that much about all these schools, but there are some changes I never saw coming. I mean, not that rankings make that much of a difference to me. But yup..a couple surprises!

    ^bc above nyu was a shocker!
  • xavier110xavier110 Posts: 413Registered User Member
    Dartmouth is still #1 for undergraduate teaching. I'm sure they're very happy about that.

    I'm not very familiar with the methodology of USNWR -- why does UPenn always do so well?
  • kwukwu Posts: 4,759Registered User Senior Member
    MWAHAHA, Georgetown!

    Tsk, poor CMU.
  • nothingtonothingto Posts: 1,346Registered User Senior Member
    Columbia University going to 4th spot was the most surprising to me.

    WOOHOO.

    Columbia Uni is my dream uni <.<

    Looks like Bates>Colby now and Harvey mudd fell

    100-98: Harvard, Princeton, Yale
    Big gap
    93-90: Stanford, UPenn, Caltech, MIT, Dartmouth, Duke, UChicago

    Interesting. If it can be claimed that the quality of undergraduate at Harvard, Yale, and Princeton is nonexistent or negligible, it can be claimed that the quality of education at Stanford, UPenn, Caltech, MIT, Dartmouth, Duke, and UChicago are negligible.

    Nothing interesting in the LACs ranking.
