Magazines don't ship boxes over 2 weeks early. There won't be any "real" leaks until a few days before the release date.

I wonder if one or two spots in the rankings (outside of T3) would mean any difference as far as employment prospects are concerned. Not like employees are suddenly going to recruit less from Chicago just because it fell to 7 or even 8.

Wasn't NYU ahead of Columbia in 2007?


The historical rankings have some shifting between Stanford and Harvard, and Columbia and NYU. The job opportunities, surprisingly, were not affected by this, nor was actual educational quality. It almost makes you wonder if these rankings have the powers we ascribe to them at all.

Possibly. I don't really follow the rankings. :P

See, perfect example of how much fun this can be. People LOLing, then pretending not to care when they get called out.

They're substantial in the calculations. But NW also has a low median GPA due to taking tons of work-experience splitters, and its selectivity is declining because fewer people fresh from undergrad are applying. NW's strategy of requiring work experience is definitely carving out a niche for the school, but that strategy also kills its competitiveness in the rankings. We'll see if NW decides that rankings are more important than its niche in the long run.

No guarantee that these are accurate, however.

NU's medians are 3.70/170, compared to Michigan's 3.70/169, Duke's 3.76/169, and Berkeley's 3.83/168. In fact, NU has the 9th highest medians behind the T6, UVA (3.85/170), and Penn (3.82/170).

What really kills NU is their low assessment scores due to having a corporate rather than academic slant.

actually, the tree-style thread format is about a thousand times more useful for facilitating discussion than the format on sites like TLS where replies are simply stacked on top of one another like bricks.

I very much disagree. One thread, one conversation. If you need hierarchies to keep it all straight, the thread need to die and be reborn as several threads.

The tree isn't so bad, its the tiny font and b&w that makes it visually tough to read.

Yes, that's also true. But I don't want to scroll for a thousand years to get to the bottom of a page. That's where a tree gets me irked.

Anyone who thinks these "leaked" rankings are real should know that they aren't.

I also won't be closing the thread because what would TLS be if it wasn't a place for 0L's bash NYU and Berkeley.

Looks like Chicago ain't even in the T14 any more.

I also love the notion that if some F'ing magazine says UChicago is 7 then every big firm in Chicago is going to be sitting there thinking "Ya know what editor-of-magazine-? You're right! That place is practically TTT, let me call up some kids from Vanderbilt, they're up and coming and a few hundred miles away - that has to be a better way to spend my time."

I'll believe the new rankings are legit when OperaSoprano gets us a hard copy.

Yes they account for 40% of the rankings formula.
