    Rice is overrated AF and UT Austin is still ranked way too high at #49. A&M should always be ahead of them in any rankings, no matter what.

    But agreed with the top 15 or so. Also, at Princeton being ranked #1 over Harvard.

    Where do you think Rice should be ranked? Outside the top 20?

    Pretty incredible for a public school that isn't terribly hard to get into if you're a CA resident with good grades.

    UC is the best public school system in the country and there isn't a close second.

    no need for backhanded compliments, btw

    I'm not saying they aren't. For public schools nearly all of the UC system crack that top 50. But it's not like TX where you have to be top 10% of your class (or an athlete) to get into a decent school

    Lot of the UC schools seems overrated. Wtf is Irvine doing on this list, or Santa whatever. Those are obvious party schools. Also, University of Chicago, really?

    I think that definition is too restrictive. Any school within the top 25-30 of the US News ranking (particularly schools like Berkeley, Georgetown, and Michigan) can rightly be considered "elite," broadly defined.

    That said, still checking in under the original definition

    UCI is easily top UC school in academics; that is no secret among CA residents. It has a top flight medical program that is among the best in the country. Sometimes, UC Berkeley gets considered better based on undeserved folklore that it's up there. It's sort of like some of the IVY league schools who have realistically fallen but get rated high based on reputation rather than a hard look at reality.

    UCSB has the hottest chicks bar none. I would doubt it deserves its ranking for academia if it's up there. I didn't look at the list.

    Doesn't matter where you went, it only matters where you're going. I encounter guys from these schools daily, many of them aren't going anywhere.

    UCI is quite good, tbh.. but overall its still squarely behind LA and cal. wasn't that long ago that UCSD was even considered a better school, but Irvine is on the rise and SD has been steadily falling in prestige. their law school is fantastic given that its only a few years old. i dont think they're overtaking LA anytime soon. Cal's lack of med school is a general knock on them when doing an overall ranking

    SB is a solid school. it does have a big party reputation... but their academics aren't reflective of that.

    when i was applying for colleges out of high school, Cal and UCLA were neck and neck, with UCSD still very high tier but clearly a step below the top 2. then irvine/SB were the next tier, followed by davis/riverside/santa cruz. looking at rankings now, SD has fallen quite a bit with irvine essentially replacing them as the clear #3

    I do a lot of consulting work in many of these schools in their science and physics departments and a good number of the grad students I encounter couldn't pour piss from a boot if the instructions were on the bottom. Even some of the assoc profs don't impress me. Usually the professors are accomplished though.
