Note: While generally reflecting common 'wisdom', view this list skeptically: Rankings change every year; Ranking is subjective; $ correlates to job location, i.e. few (sane) Stanford Grads want to be in NYC; Methodology is suspect, i.e. why is Duke #7?; Etc. [Besides, everyone knows that U of Nevada is the best... And the first 10 people who tell us why it's not ranked on ANY list may get $1,000,000,000.00 (Yes, that's billion!) each. -- Staff]
