Wow thanks for posting... that's very interesting.

Looking at 2011 rankings, and it's like they flipped the top 10 from last year upside down.

How did Stanford go from #1 to #6?
And Columbia from #9 to #1?

The lack of stability in their analysis makes me question its validity. I skimmed through the methodology and I didn't really see a dramatic change in their approach. Any idea why these would change so rapidly?

p.s. I tried to post urls to the 2011 rankings and methodology, and I got rejected for not having 5 posts yet.


EDIT: I'm an idiot, and didn't read the full comment that its in alphabetical order. Ignore this.

The above order is in alphabetical order. They just show the Top 10, not the order. The actual rankings will be released on March 13.
