Corrected the statement on OSU and Wisconsin. But OSU doesn't need to "pass it up". It has been equal to or higher in rank in recent years.

What world are you living in?
OSU has been ranked above Wisconsin for quite some time, and IU is just overranked, plain and simple. Iowa's stock is going down.
2. not enough for OSU to pass it up
3. same as 2
This isn't Big Ten football we're talking about here.
IU/IUB is way overranked and was, just two years ago, about #36 or so...where it belonged. You must be a hoosier, or planning to be one. I personally feel that OSU and Wisconsin (which has been ranked as high as #23), could both be top-25. Truth be told, #25-50 are all pretty much the same. You need to be top 10-15% to make BigLaw, and the numbers of the competitive students are pretty much the same. Many are very good state schools. There's not a lot of difference between them.
And look at Dood's rankings
up above. He has UCLA taking the 14th spot (which is a real possibility) with GWU back as a top-20 school, where many feel it should be (much less a possibility so soon after its massive drop).
