    Looks like Purdue and Illinois are slightly ranked above ISU. Where are the rest BIGs?

    wow, very impressive. Now I didn't scour the list, but I did review it fairly quickly.

    Appears we are the 7th highest rated land-grant university (Texas A&M, Cornell, Georgia, Purdue, Maryland-College Park, Illinois-Urbana ahead of us that I quickly spotted)

    Appears we are the highest rated "State" college.

    I agree that is an impressive finish for ISU. I wonder how that listing does if you graph it against # of student graduation rates.
