I'm just surprised because that was a mainstay in my house growing up. I guess I shouldn't be surprised…

Also, am I the only one who thought that preview list had Columbia ranked #1 for a second?

The preview list makes me happy because it shits on all of the Michigan haters who predicted they would fall to like 12 or 13.

No I thought for a second too, but then I realized that things never change.

Good for Hogwarts.

I don't think Rowling used that much slang.

Rowling was much more comfortable in her own skin. Didn't feel the need to cool.

In other words, no change in the top 10 (other than specific rank). So much for USNWR’s rumored criteria change impacting school’s with sky-high school funded employment.

I really don't get the Hogwarts thing. Yale looks like Hogwarts, too. And just about every other school with similar architecture.

It's fucking bullshit.

Hopefully that'll be the next thing they pare down. There has to be a way to separate the good school-funded jobs (paying for a grad to work at a non-profit that won't put him on the payroll until after he passes the barzam) from the bad (paying grads to do admin work at the school or call prospective students). Even without that, this year's changes are certainly a step in the right direction. We just have to keep demanding further methodology changes at USNWR and more transparency from schools.

For the most part, I think. I didn't know that was the case either until I started making my own -- I googled recipes to get ideas for interesting stuff to throw in there for flavor and found a bunch of blog posts by non-South people going on about how they had 'discovered' pepper sauce when they were down here.

I can't eat vegetables without the stuff.

I've always assumed that the Hogwarts thing refers primarily to the library's reading room, which looks like shit from the movies.

I love soy sauce…. I recently became a fan of tobacco sauce, love it! Began at the Super Bowl party (because of Gumbo). But doubt if I would ever mix the two…

I was just saying that saying you discovered pepper sauce sounds just as absurd to me as saying you discovered soy sauce.

Apparently they've lost their death grip on hiring decisions though, too bad :(
