    NU used to get relatively low high-school counsellor rankings (as compared to `lower ivies', which had greater name recognition). This year USNWR has removed that from the formula, which is helping it. Though realistically, NU, Duke, and JHU just form one cluster for all practical purposes.

    Long overdue!
    NU is absolutely one of the country’s best universities.
