Florida has two T1s now, Miami is down a tad, they're ranking T3s, Villanova isn't the heaviest hit school out there, Chicago Kent flies up despite the market being heavy hit... what a list.

Atleast now I can tell people that I will be attending a Top 9 school as opposed to a Top 10. Helps the ego a little, right? right?

Berkeley is no longer as appealing as it was this morning and Michigan looks much sexier tonite, just saying.

American has been falling for a couple of years now, I've noticed. I wouldn't be surprised if they were T2 next year.

The dean probably shouldn't. Just pack the bags and hit the links... no alum want's that.

Sweet.

I'm disappointed that they couldn't rank everyone. I assume the unranked schools refused to provide data? (not that I'd blame them)

I wish they'd ranked UCI.

If you are from the NYC area, you may be able to go back there. Otherwise I wouldn't count on it.

Yeah it really sucks because Georgia firms only recruit at T30 schools.

I'm shocked St. John's dropped. Wow. Hofstra outranks it now. Although this probably won't change lay prestige which still places SJU above Hofstra this was unexpected. Hoped Rutgers would be able to push forward since I think it's a vastly underrated school. Oh well. Always next year.

sorry only t13 schools are national. at all other schools you will have to wear one of these upon graduation, which will make it hard (if not impossible) to move outside of the region:
