I mean, come on, Brown is ranked lower than WashU, UChicago, Cornell, Northwestern and Duke.
Why doesn't Brown manipulate numbers like WashU and Northwestern and climb back up the rankings?
You guys may think I'm shallow, but just about ALL asian kids know what a pain in the butt it is to explain to parents that they'd rather go to Brown over Cornell even though its ranked lower.
Brown has a lower admit rate, higher SAT's, but it gets killed on stupid statistics like "Faculty Rescources", where other schools just manipulate all they want. And then, Asian parents won't believe that it is true, and then call their kids useless for going to a (GULP!) number 15!!! school. God damn, do something Brown, do something. Because schools like WashU which are notorious for number manipulating might actually steal the nation's top students, and then they would get better unfairly.
