The last time they ranked schools was back in 1987 (or something), a WHILE back, so whatever stats you find are completely bogus nowadays...

Illinois
Washington (highly prefers in-state residents)

Marquette
Case Western (spoke with some people and they enjoyed their experience)
Pitt (good experience, but many patients opt for extractions...poor patients)

First of all, that top 12 must be the top Publics for that year, because there are some schools missing if its not.

In that 1992 report, Nova is listed there. I checked Nova's web site and it says that they admitted their charter class in August 1997? :spam:

(I had to put the spam, i havn't seen anyone use it yet!)

Actually, it is not a list of the top Public schools from that year. That rank considered all the schools. I remember reading that issue of US News b/c that was around the time I was trying to decide which joint-dental program to accept. That was part of the dilemma with those ranks b/c some of the "ego-heavy" $$$ schools didn't make the list and got out ranked by the "measly" public schools making some private schools very unhappy. So no, there aren't schools missing from the list...

I remember suspecting that it was a list of top publics only, but I found a source (on the internet) that suggested that it was the complete list. Did US News provide methodology or metrics on those? I seem to recall that they don't for some fields.

One of the main reasons the list was abandoned was because the methodology was a bit "shady".

So, it was basically a poor survey in terms of misleading standards being reported from individual dental schools? - what exactly ignites dental schools to such research being done again?
