I wasn't really trying to rank stuff or determine whether the University of Texas has an edge over UConn. My point is just that UConn and the University of Texas are in the same broad category: "real," first-rate, good universities... not world-famous household names but places where you can get a high-credibility degree. As for the accuracy of U.S. News and World Report's rankings, well, it is what it is. There is a demand for rankings so there is a supply.Valuethinker wrote: ↑Fri Nov 17, 2017 7:31 amI don't think you can count UC campuses as "one". Very different universities.
Amazed at UTA ranking because my perception is its way up there. Top 10 or 15 public universities. I have encountered grads from its business programme, and have been impressed.
