Why do such a fairly substantial portion of people have HLS over YLS? I go to HLS and I severely doubt that's gonna happen given how much weight is given to student-faculty ratio and how much smaller YLS is ...

Because Yale has been #1 since 2000 at least.

ETA: I read that wrong. Though your question was the other way around.

Yeah somehow I don't think the guy who put GULC at #1 and Yale at #14 was being entirely serious unless he knows on the dl that USNWR started counting library chairs this year

If I truly listed what I thought, Stanford-Columbia-Chicago-NYU-Penn would all be tied. I doubt if there’s a bit of difference between any of them. OCI shows up, BL fights over everyone in the top 85% of their class. Not a fan of UVA because of their school funded jobs scheme. I think the state of Michigan is underwater, thus UMich is distressed. No idea if UT will crack the top 14. Schools ranked under 15 is just wild guessing from last year’s results.

Can we do a side bet for UCI's debut? No prize, just an official way to keep track for bragging rights?

Do you know of a secondary USNWR metric that would be a suitable tiebreaker for people who guess the same spot? I doubt anyone is going to guess Top 10 you know.

Could be added to this thread, or a separate one.

The main problem is that there would almost certainly be a tie if enough people voted, and I can't think of a way to split the tie. If we integrated the UCI bet into this thread, then the tiebreaker could be the winners relative performance in the overall rank-guessing contest?
