Re: How does US News calculate the rankings?

1. Yale
2-3. Harvard or Stanford, totally random in order
4-6. Columbia, NYU, or Chicago, totally random in order
7-14. The rest of the T14, totally random in order
15-20. Always the same schools, totally random in order
20-50. Even more random than ever
50-100. Ultra mega random.

lol..... Yes, that seems to be 100% accurate regarding the results of the rankings every year. However, I was hoping for a mathematical walk-through of how to calculate the "overall score" of a school based on US News' methodology. :lol:

Don't bother. The rankings are pretty worthless.
