    O.K let me break it down like this.

    1) Harvard
    2) Duke
    3) Hopkins
    4) WashU
    5) Upenn
    6) UCSF
    7) Columbia
    8) Stanford
    9) Yale
    10) UMich-Ann Arbor

    Harvard is waaay too bad-ass and will hold the #1 spot for at least another 2 decades. Hopkins really f-ed up this time with the well publicized scandal about research on human subjects. I think they'll get punished for that. Duke is doing everything right and covering all bases thoroughly; It's going to pay them off like it did last year. In its race with WashU, Penn is fuelled largely by its Ivyness and longstanding tradition. This race can only last so long. WashU is a damn beast and will probably shake Penn off its back this time. Same deal with Columbia and UCSF. Fresh-faced UCSF will probably upset the Ivy-veteran Columbia. Stanford remains a powerhouse in the eyes of academics. The Harvard of the west is likely to gain some ground on Yale. UMich holds its place. Baylor, Cornell, and UWasington ain't got nothin on UMich.
    Take it all with a truck-load of salt; however, I think I make some really good points that will prove precise come the 2002 rankings. PREDICT AWAY!!!

    Original: I think you're right about Hopkins but wrong about the rest. ;) Also, I think the rise of the Chicago schools will be upon us, at least in terms of reputation.

    1) Harvard
    2) Duke
    3) Hopkins
    4) U Penn
    5) Wash U
    6) UCSF
    7) Stanford
    8) Columbia
    9) Yale
    10) Cornell
    11-13) UMich, U Chicago, Northwestern

    Very interesting. I think you're pretty much right about the schools that'll be in the top ten, but I'm not so sure about the order. I agree that Hopkins and Yale will probably fall, but I think that Wash U and UCSF will be 2 and 3. UCSF due to the gigantic new Mission Bay campus. The first building at Mission Bay should be opening in the next year or so (I think).

    1) Harvard
    2) WashU
    3) UCSF
    4) Duke
    5) Upenn
    6) Hopkins
    7) Columbia
    8) Stanford
    9) Yale
    10) UMich-Ann Arbor

    I'm not so sure that Columbia will stay on there either, but I don't really know who'd take their place. As for the Chicago schools, I really don't think they'll be moving up. Pritzker is good, and may improve a little, but as far as I know it's not making any major changes. Also, from what I hear about Northwester (I could be wrong) the research and med school facilities are getting kind of old and there may need to be some new building. I think they're similar to Stanford in that they're living off of their reputation.

    This is fun,

    gotta give a little more west coast lovin, no mention of the bruins at all to this point. One thing to remember is that the biggest reason these rankings change is because usnews tweaks their formula, not because the schools change anything, I highly doubt summer controversies will kick jhu out of #2.

    1. Harvard
    2. JHU
    3. Duke
    4. UCSF
    5. WashU
    6. Penn
    7. Yale
    8. Columbia
    9. UCLA
    10. Stanford

    If you want to get a rise out of a gunner, put Harvard in #2 position. That should take care of things. :D

    I didn't think the US NEWS did overall rankings anymore. I thought it was now research or speciality specific. Where are you finding the overall rankings? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    Well, it's broken down into research and primary care. I think most people here are using the research category. Harvard ranks like 30th in primary care, so I'd imagine that's what they're talking about.
