    That most schools whose name include the name of a city or state are public. Exceptions include New York University, ArizonaSDOH, Baylor, ...etc.

    From this data set, I see there are more public d-schools than private d-schools. But all that seems a little excessive.

    The numbering made me think something else was going on.

    There are 3 schools that are uncategorized. What does that mean? :confused:

    So the original post wasn't some sort of error? There is really some sort of rank here that we must figure out?

    I figured out the numbering though:

    They are listed by state alphabetically. Ie Alabama, California (UCLA, UCSF), Colorado etc.

    It is the same for all three columns. Now we just need to figure out what the three columns are for.

    The schools could not decide on their identity.

    I pulled this from another thread:

    Maybe these three take in-house applications?

    Or maybe I'm just grasping at straws, but I'd like to know the answer.
