I use the most objective source available to the general public to make the most informed opinions possible. Come up with a better solution if you've got one. They combine many statistics to come up with their numbers, its closer than anything you've given me, pal.

What is there to do in Idaho other than drink and hook up with girls? Nothing, thus making it no different than any other small town which surrounds a college.

The point is, I cited an objective reference to prove my point, you've provided this entire conversation with nothing, zip, zilch, nada with the exception of, as noted before, calling me an "elitist" for using those rankings. Good one.

I'm not going to waste my time noting the fantastic programs at schools outside of the top 50, but the point is that anyone can exceed anywhere, most schools provide a great education, and being outside of some arbitrary number in some arbitrary ranking does not mean a school is not good.

Party school? No, it's just that all there is to do is drink or at least enhance your activities with alcohol. Most places have one night where they have a lot of drink specials and those are spread out through the week, so you can drink just about any time you want.

Now you're comparing individual programs at schools to entire universities, which was what I was ranking. You can't just change the scope of an argument to suit your needs and call that evidence. That's not how it works. And to call the rankings more arbitrary than your opinions doesn't make sense either. Also, if you WANTED to go into individual programs, how would you discuss the benefits of those. Answer, the rankings as well. Nice try.
