Hey guys,

I was browsing the SDN School Rankings page at: http://schools.studentdoctor.net/

My question is: how are the rankings (1-5) determined? 1 is the best, and 5 is the worst, but there are no indications of how this tier ranking is determined. It must be different from US News because there is a pretty noticeable difference in rankings. For example, University of Miami is a top 20 school on SDN and 45 on US News.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I think it's simply user votes (popularity contest)?

Those rankings look very inaccurate. I wouldn't pay much attention to them at all.

Lol. So apparently Brown has an avg MCAT of 24.2? And Case Western and Icahn are ranked in the "3" category along the likes of St. Matthew's and a long list of state schools? You can safely ignore.
