Today is the launch day of America’s Best Graduate Schools. I decided to wear my mortar board while I work on it this week until it launches. The cap has been a big hit at meetings and around the office. This is probably the smoothest rankings project I have ever worked on here at U.S News & World Report. Be sure to check out http://www.usnews.com/grad later on this evening to see the new grad school rankings that I’ve been busy with.
