Haha, saw this. Pretty funny, but I'm not sure where they got these ranking for sexiness - I can tell you (based on four years of experience) that Carnegie Mellon is not the 32nd sexiest school, and also they used the forbes rankings for academics, which are a complete joke (25% based on "ratemyprofessor.com", etc)

The idea that CMU would be ranked higher for sexiness (32) than for academics (69) is hilarious.

Still, a funny concept.

I just feel bad for the poor mopes at Wayne State and the University of Houston. They have the lovely distinction (at least according to this) of being the least academic and the most hideous.
