Agreed. Started following him because he's been so generous with the data and answering questions.


It's all good. Thanks for following though!

UT missing the T14 is very disappointing. Silent rant.

Interesting that on the day Emory jumped 4 points, ATL published a scathing article about Emory gouging its grads with a ridiculously high $194 cap and gown rental fee.

LOL I was waiting for one of these theories to show up.

addition: I do word things like "nice data" all the way back from listening to the Jerky Boys prank calls...


You need to give Stanford a -1! :D Ahh, schadenfreude.


BUMPING to new page / for Spivey.

How are schools ordered in case of a tie?

Like, why is Columbia the first #4?

A tie is treated as if they're both 4. So anyone with C or C ranked 5 will be losing 2 points (off by 1 and double for T14). At least that's how I understand it.

Edit: was thinking about the contest and have no idea how they're ordered within the tie. Sorry about that!

False. As should be clear to anyone with even a passing familiarity with our alphabet, "Ch" comes before "Co".

The truth is that USNWR publishes even more granular rankings that it distributes only to insiders. We can see from the data that Columbia is slightly (but noticeably) above Chicago, while Duke is above Michigan. In other words, the "insider" rankings look as follows:

1. Yale
2. Harvard
3. Stanford
4. Columbia
5. Chicago
6. NYU
7. Penn
8. UVA
9. Boalt
10. Duke
11. Michigan

Yes. Columbia University is alphabetically before University of Chicago.

They count "University of…," in which C is before U.

Shit, it is? I told them I wouldn't write for them unless it was free. Guess that was my last piece.


I guess I could register and get it for free now that I'm looking at it more closely, but idk I don't feel that giving them my contact information counts as "free"

Putting it on Huffington Post now so don't bother with law.com.

Good question. I'm looking at the actual assigned point values, and the spread between Cornell and USC is minuscule. We're basically talking about statistical noise here. For all intents and purposes, we're in a T22 world now.
