How do they come out before schools have finalized their medians for the incoming class?

Same. A couple more spots and it will be a TTT. That'd be extremely lulzy.

Lol, I have no idea, but it would be awesome and not at all unexpected if they keep up this tradition. Someone's gotta keep the rankings honest, ya know? :lol:

The hand-wringing from both professors and students last year was HILARIOUS and we only "fell" 4 spots.

I predict that the rankings will be worse than useless for deciding what school to go to.
