DeVry Was Robbed

The Post reports that U.S. News and & World has been raked over the coals for accidentally swapping two plebian grad schools in place of two prestigious ones in its most recent graduate school Top 10 list.
Where Carnegie Mellon and the University of Texas at Austin should have been, Mort Zuckerman’s previously esteemed publication placed Portland State University and the University of Texas at Arlington (in the No. 9 and 10 spots, respectively). Thanks to the “data glitch,” these low-rent schools were “put…in league with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley.”
Apparently PSU was so shocked and delighted to hear it had made the Top 10 for the first time ever that it “rushed out a press release” which is kind of amusing/kind of sad. Meanwhile, MIT, Stanford and Berkeley have been busy scrubbing the stench of third tier education off themselves ever since.
If you think your school’s been the victim of misrepresentation (this has happened to HBS at least once or twice), take a second to shoot us an email today at Thanks!
