k12345,

US News' rankings are viewed as being both authentic and serious in the U.S. There is nothing flaky about their methodology and I consult them as often as I do Business Week's rankings. I am frankly not sure why Vandy placed so differently in the BW and USN rankings. Personally, I tend to favor WSJ's rankings because they are based on the input of the people who ultimately will offer you (one hopes) a job: corporate recruiters. FYI, WSJ ranks Vandy no. 21 on its Regional Schools Ranking (it has separate International Schools and National Schools rankings).

For more on rankings, you may want to tune into Accepted.com's chat, "The Right Way to Use Rankings."

Hope this helps,
