I think they must have changed the ranking system and this post may be missing some of the other 'divisions.'

If you look on UTA's MPA site, they claim that they are #2 for 2009 - http://blogs.mccombs.utexas.edu/mpa-new ... -rankings/

yes I think their doing tiers based on sizes, Texas already claimed #1 masters while Illinois claimed #1 undergrad. William and Mary and Vandy are small programs if i recall

Explanation for School Rankings

"Because the participation level in PAR’s professor survey has increased so substantially
since 2005, PAR felt that the Top 25 rankings for undergraduate graduate and
doctoral were good, they may not be giving a complete picture compared to earlier
years when the survey had far fewer particpants. This year we decided to present the
overall rankings as we traditionally have and offer an expanded look based on separating
schools in one of three groups, Group I, Group II and Group III. The groupings
were based on a methodology tied to number of teaching professors at the institution.
Group I is the largest, Group II mid-size and Group III the smallest group."

(bold sentence = my emphasis)

Seems like the rankings are also tied to number of teaching professors; 24 out of the 25 top schools in the overall undergrad rankings are from Group I, with William & Mary the lone exception (in graduate programs it's 23 out of 25).

Anyone knows why William & Mary is actually in both Group I and Group III for graduate rankings?

With these types of surveys, we're bound to see a big-name bias but I didn't think it was that crazy.

Do all U.S. schools get rated for this? Surprisingly, I can't find my school on the list (DePaul University)

Because the USNews ranks schools in the aggregate and does not split them, use the comprehensive list on top as your rankings.

Instead of surveying professors it seems they would do better to survey based upon hiring practices of Big 4. There are several universities that appear on this list from my old U.S. region, from which we hired very few staff every year, and several that were our 'focus' schools which do not appear here. Very odd.
