Anyway, I'm not smart enough to say what is right, but sometime I do know what is wrong. Anyway it's not so much what anyone says but how they say it. You have to come off from a position of cool confidence, not panicked rage, lay off the sinking ship bull shit, and focus on measures that will be taken in the future.
We know the factors behind UCD's boost, they have literally unbelievable employment #'s despite being equal in every single outcome measured on this site (NLJ 250, Vault 25, PI+Government, Fed Clerkships) and that renovation they had probably increased their money per student number (not sure if that's still a factor though). The % differences are statistically insignificant in every category. Create one thread, with ALL the evidence laid out. Defend the argument elsewhere, but that has restrictions as well, like don't jump into the Acceptance thread. The threads in the acceptance forum serve 2 purposes: 1 helpful info on admissions issues, and 2 circle jerk.
Agree with that...I have exited the acceptances thread. I don't usually run to those threads looking to start a fight; I usually read something someone has posted like "HasTTTings sux in USNWR --> go Davis" and find myself getting pulled into a fight. But I will try to restrain my emotions in the future
