It seems medical schools can distort ratings like this since medical research is so much more expensive than other academic fields... UT Austin vs UCLA is another example. In most academic fields, they're ranked almost the same, with each having strengths over the other. Yet UCLA has a medical school and is ranked much higher than Austin. Will be interesting to see the effect, if any, when UT Austin opens its medical school in the near future.
Berkeley's is still across the Bay.
UCLA has absolutely no renowned majors.
Even lower UCs are known for their academic majors. UCSD = Bioengineering; UC Davis = Veterinary sciences, agricultural; UCSB = physics and creative studies. UCLA = ???? Film?
I said "renowned" not merely good. When you think of UCLA what majors is it known for?
Yet I can't think of any one program in particular for which Brown University is renowned.
