Well shit I might as well... can someone post Indiana?

I'm shocked they've held onto that ranking despite repeated and constant underachievement in job placement.

Because LSN is a non-representative sample.

Well yea, but it just seems especially unrepresentative for Stanford.

It seems like TLS relies so much of our advice on LSN for most schools. Just wondering if anyone has any theories as to why the Stanford group looks so wrong given their actual medians.

+1 STFU Rad Lulz. Everyone gets it.

There's discussing rankings, and then there's questioning whether they'll have an impact on anything substantive. At all. They won't. And if you think they do you're an idiot.


I don't recall anyone saying they impact anything substantive.

The rankings don't meaningfully measure job placement. U.S. News just accepts whatever bullshit percentage the school gives them.

Mainly because my hobby is to create fake LSN accounts to inflate Stanford's medians.

I appreciate this, but I assumed US News would eventually correct for blatant gaming.
