    Why do you think some medical schools do not report their statistics to USNEWS? It bothers me that they don't.

I'm sure they'll change their previous stance of not giving US NEWS any info. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, one of the reasons is probably b/c the rankings are heavily influenced by NIH money, so those schools that aren't research based get screwed over.
