Actually it's seriously making Cornell look good in my eyes. Call me dumb and gullible but ranking #2 doesn't seem too fluke like to me. It shows that Cornell can at least do as well as most other t14 schools.
I think it shows that Cornell has one target market, and it happens to be the only market where you had any chance of a job ITE. It's not rocket science, but if that's enough to rocket it up someone's list, so be it.
True national schools didn't fare quite as well in this metric. Not surprising.
