DAMN MONKEYS ARE U BLIND

Despite my love for its campus, I think it's time that M settled down where it belongs with DCNG. NU has hovered around 11/12 for the last six years. I don't think 10 is unreasonable, and I like what NU's been doing with WE expectations. Also, nice campus in an ugly city.

You'd better not be talking about Chicago.

I have the same number of ties as Crowing. I do think I bumped up Duke too much but I'm not taking this seriously enough to change anything.

First of all, consider this a bump for new submissions.

Ranking your Rankings

I did some amateur (read: probably wrong and misleading) statistical analysis on the first 28 (well, 27, because Sunny's just messed things up and LRGhost didn't make it in time) submissions. If you want to play around with the numbers, here is the spreadsheet I made. You should be able to download it and put it into Excel, but I'm not totally sure how GoogleDrive is different from GoogleDocs yet. Note that the ones that go all the way to #25 get a little janky after UMinn because not everyone included every school thereafter in the T25. Anyway, here are a few:

    Ranked according to the average rank assigned by TLSers (ROUNDED)

      _1. Yale
      _2. Harvard
      _3. Stanford
      _4. Columbia
      _5. Chicago
      _6. NYU
      _7. Penn
      _8. Berkeley
      _9. Virginia
      10. Michigan
      11. Duke
      12. Northwestern
      13. Cornell
      14. Georgetown
      15. UCLA
      16. Texas
      17. Vanderbilt
      18. USC
      19. UMinn
      20. GWU
      21. WUSTL
      22. Notre Dame
      23. Emory
      24. U Washington
      25. W&L
      25. ASU

    Ranked according to the average rank assigned by TLSers (NOT ROUNDED)

      _1. Yale
      _2. Harvard
      _3. Stanford
      _4. Columbia
      _5. Chicago
      _6. NYU
      _7. Penn
      _8. Virginia
      _9. Berkekey
      10. Michigan
      11. Duke
      12. Northwestern
      13. Cornell
      14. Georgetown
      15. UCLA
      16. Texas
      17. Vanderbilt
      18. USC
      19. UMinn
      20. GWU
      21. WUSTL
      22. Notre Dame
      23. Emory
      24. ASU
      25. U Washington

And now here are some other things Excel told me. I think the standard deviation is really interesting. Y'all really aren't sure where to put UVA, are you?

    Median School Rank
      Yale: 1
      Stanford: 2
      Harvard: 2
      Columbia: 4
      Chicago: 5
      NYU: 6
      Penn: 7
      Berkeley: 8
      Virginia: 8
      Michigan: 10
      Duke: 11
      Northwestern: 12
      Cornell: 13
      Georgetown: 14
      UCLA: 15
      Texas: 16
      Vanderbilt: 17
      USC: 18
      UMinn: 20

    Mode School Rank
      Yale: 1
      Stanford: 2
      Harvard: 2
      Columbia: 4
      Chicago: 5
      NYU: 6
      Penn: 7
      Virginia: 8
      Berkeley: 9 (change)
      Michigan: 10
      Duke: 11
      Northwestern: 12
      Cornell: 13
      Georgetown: 14
      UCLA: 15
      Texas: 15 (change)
      Vanderbilt: 17
      USC: 18
      UMinn: 20

    Standard Deviation of School Rank
    (Average = 0.785923; Above Average Uncertainty vs. Below Average Uncertainty)

    Most Certain
      Yale: 0.1924
      Cornell: 0.3620
      NYU: 0.4369
      Columbia: 0.4560
      Stanford: 0.5091
      Harvard: 0.5091
      Georgetown: 0.6155
      Penn: 0.6751
      UMinn: 0.7337
      Chicago: 0.8077
      Northwestern: 0.8439
      Vanderbilt: 0.8931
      Berkeley: 0.9120
      Texas: 0.9607
      USC: 1.0741
      Duke: 1.0794
      UCLA: 1.2206
      Michigan: 1.2821
      Virginia: 1.3681
    Least Certain

Btw some people (including you North) have a tie at 25 which causes you to have 26 schools listed - obvs this is gonna be a problem with scoring but idk what you want to do about that.

Another good save, bro. I fixed mine -- went with BC over BU because of employment stats and that godawful tower. It appears to be only my man Unoriginalist who also had a tie at 25. I'll PM him and have him pick between U Wash and Emory.

ETA: Everything should be fixed now.

Seriously. How does NYU vault past Columbia and Stanford (LOL) and leave Penn behind?

Also, none of those schools are the best.

NYU is #4 in the Law Journal ranking of “Go-to-Schools.” Ahead of Columbia and Stanford in JDs and BL hiring. #3 is not exactly a huge stretch.
