I know this is a thread resurrection, but there is a countdown timer on the USNEWS rankings page as of today. It indicates 28 days, 23 hours until the new graduate school rankings come out. Thus, they will be coming out at 12:00 AM on April 15. So, all those prestige-obsessed persons with April 15 postmark deadlines for deposits can find out exactly where their school is ranked before mailing it in.

I wonder if they'll be leaked the week before or anything.

It is so sad that they have a countdown timer, and should be used in the argument that they have too much sway.

Pretty soon, some guy will show up on TLS claiming that he has the '11 rankings. He will have a great story about how he came across the rankings early. Enjoy the story, disregard his so-called rankings.

You're late to the party, it happened at least 2 weeks ago.

leaked rankings season is the best time of the year. Last year a series of leakers emerged, most quickly discredited but not before causing a wave of emotions over everyone applying. One set came out that quickly convinced me. This set was then confirmed during the Opera Soprano adventure. May she be blessed.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69258

edit: the first leak wasn't Mandlebaum, rather 2 days earlier in this thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69124 some (now deleted) poster offered a low quality scan of what turned out to be the new rankings. After seeing the official version it was clear the leak was an earlier print version of the finalized rankings. I really was really happy to see GW plummet 10 spots.

The trick with US News Rankings is to view it every 4 years in case there are significant changes (because there normally aren't).

Thank you! I passed through Penn Station yesterday, but alas, no rankings. They've wised up, or maybe just decided to forgo the free publicity of an early newsstand release in order to make us pay for the privilege.

You know you can't do it because we're all prestige whores and this shitty magazine had such a good marketing campaign that the entire educational system is on its knees to please these pseudo journalists.
