OK US News ranks them in completely different categories. I know some of you think these rankings are a croc and completely false but I don't care. So how does a top tier small school compare to larger state schools? I guess its safe to assume they're FAR from equivalent to the top tier state schools(like MIT, Berekeley). Are they compatible to something like Virgina Tech, which is in the teens of the large schools? Or something more in the 30s-40s? Or something more like University of Utah in the 70s?
