    Probably higher than Loyola but nothing that screams a huge difference between the two. To me there are only three levels. The elite, which is like maybe 10-12 schools that make you take notice immediately. Ie Harvard, Penn, UCSF... The middle which consist of about 90-100 schools where there are clearly differneces but that aren't likely to affect anything too greatly. Then the bottom which are still good schools but which carry a small stigma. Usually this teir is for newer schools or ones with a sketchy recent history. All that said the differences between the top and bottom is not as great as some would make you think. You can do just about anything from any school given you excell there. People on SDN like to point to match lists of top schools and point to that as the reason why people did well, when in my mind of course you would expect a great match list from a school that picked the countries top top students. If you like U of MN tc then go there it won't hold you back one bit.

    PS. sorry for the painfully long post on a simple question
