My mind is too polluted by the application process and a year of law school to make any kind of meaningful ranking. I'm pretty sure I didn't know UofC, UVA and Duke were top schools though. I knew NYU is good, but that's mostly because I'm a NYC-ophile.
I'm in the same boat- that's why I wanted to see what everyone else is thinking and see if we can't get a general consensus. So far, Harvard is the obvious #1, but for some reason, there's a voice in my head saying that Stanford edges out Yale for #2.
Oh, and whoever said Columbia's prestige is regional, I do not think that is true. Just going off general perception, it is widely known and respected. In retrospect, I'd probably change my original rank to Columbia and then NYU.
