    All fine schools. A couple of points though:

    1 Cal Davis is omitted from the list. UCD and Lehigh were tied for 46th.

    2. You have only included doctoral universities, which USNWR calls "national universities" There are fine liberal arts colleges and universities that focus on undergrad and master's degrees. These schools are ranked separately by USNWR.

    For a couple of decades, Dartmouth and Columbia played musical chairs (often being tied) for the #4 ranked Ivy school.

    That's changed in the last generation when cities stopped being total ****holes to live in. New York and Philadelphia aren't the toilets that they used to be...

    Hence, Columbia and Penn moved up a bit and were able to bypass Dartmouth.

    Hopefully we at least kick their butts in football.

    I think acquiring Richmond and Villanova and giving the Hoyas the boot to the PFL would be perfect! Having a nice, round eight team league with all teams having scholarships would be perfect...
