I'll sum it up:
1. Michigan, Penn, Virginia, & Berkeley are peer schools. They play musical chairs in the rankings every year.
2. I believe Michigan's raw score is exactly the same as it was last year (maybe a point lower, not sure). It didn't move much, but Penn, Virginia, & Berkeley improved enough to budge them ahead of Mich and into a tie.
3. Even though Michigan fell 3 spots in the rankings (behind a 3-way tie) it's still in the same spot its been in for years, somewhere in the MPVB block.
4. No one cares. The name kicks ass. If you were considering it before, you should still consider it now.
ETA: Oh yeah, you should come. The school freakin rocks. hth
