    This is a crap ranking service. If you filter it to US only, they list USC (17th) ahead of UCLA (25th), UC Berkley (tied for 33rd), UC Davis (41st), UCSD (45th), UCSB (83rd), and Purdue (43rd).

    I thought this thread was going to be about the Lucas troll. But Scott Wolf is obviously not interested in that.

    Need to read the criteria for their rankings. All about who they select to respond...which isn't published.

    Oh, I care. I feel we are being insulted by this ranking.

    This belongs on OT if it belongs anywhere. THE is a subscription service for universities ( as well as students) , which makes it suspect from the outset. You say you want a better ranking? ….... OK, what level can you afford? , a gold ranking , or a silver ranking or maybe a platinum ranking ? .send money.

    Berkeley and ucla will always be up there, just because. The UC system is pretty well-regarded internationally and seeing as Berkeley and their little sister down south are the two high profile campuses, they'll get the love.
    You can find rankings to suit any bias though, so who really knows which one to take seriously? And the Times has never been particularly generous to USC in the past, so no surprises there.
    Look where ND is though. And I've seen rankings that have ND ranked above us. So again, who knows?
    The USNWR ranking came out and had us tied with Berkeley. ucla moved up and ahead of us, so you know that the USNWR ranking will be legit again in their eyes now that they've moved ahead of us in that one. When we were tied with them, or above them by a hair, suddenly the USNWR ranking was a "joke." I'm sure they like it again now.

    No mystery, what I'm implying is that THE is a money making operation like most things on the web. .

    Perhaps but what is their incentive to place USC academics at such a poor ranking?

    Bet you that a fat check from USC would fix that. One way is for USC to take out a subscription and an advertisement on their site. .I have no proof, but money is a powerful incentive.
